Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

  Belated St. Patty's day all.  Of course we had our Corned Beef and Cabbage.  This is my daughters favorite meal.  On her birthday she always wants me to make it.  I always make 2 corned beef, one in the pressure cooker and the other in a pot cooked very slow on the oven.  Well I got to thinking last night laying in bed and said to myself, why can't I just cook the second one in the slow cooker.  I wasn't sure on how long to cook it so of course I searched the net.  It  took 6 hours.  This is the one from the slow cooker.

3 lb corned beef
3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch slices
4 medium carrots, cut large pieces
2 stalks celery, cut in large pieces
1 small head of green cabbage
I cooked it for 3 1/2 hrs on high and then 2 1/2 on low.  Next time I will put the cabbage in a bit later, maybe just the last 2 1/2 hrs.  The potatoes were very good but we always have mashed potatoes with our cabbage and never have carrots or the celery.  I will for sure make this again this way.
Thanks for stopping by and Remember to Find the time to do ALL the things you love.

I always cook my corned beef in the slow cooker- always makes it come out nice and tender. I haven't made it in forever cause my hubby doesn't like cabbage :(. I'll be over next St. Patrick's Day though for dinner :D, LOL!!

Well come on, you know you're always welcome and we always have plenty. I had never owned a slow cooker til Xmas Time. Saw one on sale at Wally World and thought why not. They sure do work nice for so many things.
