Saint Patrick’s day was YESTERDAY.
But… I’m making this tonight. For a group of girls coming over.
Then, I’m making it for may parents when they come to visit later this week.
I kinda fell in love with it because it is SOO easy – in a crock pot. And SOOOOO tasty.
Even if you’re not a cabbage fan, you MUST try this cabbage on the grill sometime this year. It is the best veggie I’ve ever eaten. And my kids want more of it than any other veggie I’ve given them. (But what isn’t good when you take the ‘health’ out of it with bacon and butter?)
Bacon Makes it Better Cabbage:
Head of Cabbage
1/4 pound of bacon
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 onion – optional. I didn’t use it.
Crock Pot Beer & Corned Beef Brisket
6 red potatoes, quartered
2 medium onions, peeled and quartered
1/2 bag baby carrots
1 bay leaf (or two small ones)
1 can beer
Place potatoes, onions, carrots, and bay leaf in crock pot.
Sprinkle Ground Mustard and Garlic Pepper on both sides of meat. Put meat on top of veggies.
If desired, place cabbage wedges on top of meat.
Pour beer over all.
Cover and cook on LOW heat setting 9-11 hours.
Slice brisket thinly across grain (let it cool 5- 10 minutes for easier slicing).
Serve with vegetables.
