Happy St Patrick’s Day….

Tommy and I are home alone today.  We have the following in the crockpot cooking for our St Pat’s meal.  I have never eaten corned Beef  and cabbage so we will see.  Hubby wanted me to make some.

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
You will need:
a crockpot large enough to hold your corned beef brisket
the corned beef brisket (with seasoning packet)
yellow mustard
apple cider vinegar
brown sugar
Scrub your potatoes and carrots and cut into 1-2″ chunks (whatever works best for your family) and set aside.
In a small bowl mix together 2 teaspoons yellow mustard, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, and 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar. Add contents of seasoning packet from corned beef (or if you don’t have the seasoning packet, use 1 1/2 tsp. pickling spice). Rinse corned beef (there probably isn’t a real reason to do this, I just do it :)) and place in crockpot. Rub with the mustard mixture to completely cover the top and sides (and bottom if you have enough). Add 1 cup of water (I generally pour this around the sides to avoid washing off the rub that I just put on the meat). Add potatoes and carrots on top of the meat. Cover, and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.

Cut cabbage into small wedges and add to crockpot 30 minutes before serving. Cover and let cook (on HIGH) for 30 minutes.

We made this for dessert…  Gotta have a green cake. 

Pistachio Cake
1 white cake mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup club soda
2 packages of Pistachio Instant Pudding
1/2 cups walnuts (if you like nuts)

Combine all ingredients and beat for 4 minutes with a mixer. Then fold
in walnuts. Bake in either a Bundt pan or a 13″X9″ pan at 350 degrees
for between 45-60 minutes depending on your oven and the pan.

Frosting: 1 package of Dream Whip
1 package of Pistachio Instant Pudding
1 1/2 cups milk

  1. My name is Stephan. You don’t know me, but I’m taking a survey. Do you think that the fans of Britney Spears will stand by her through all the issues she’s been having lately? Please take the time to comment me back. Thanks.

  2. I always but a ton of corned beef because its .99 /lb this time of year. I would definitely recommend draining it and rinsing it unless you buy the low sodium. Its also really tough so about the only way I have found to make it is to put it in a crock pot for about 12 hours on low then I made Corned Beef Hash.

  3. Thanks for the crockpot recipe. I’m going to cook my corn beef sometime next week and wanted to try doing it in the crockpot. I don’t use if very often so I wasn’t sure exactly how to do it.

  4. that is almost identical to the cake my mom made when we were growing up! YUM!!

  5. Yummy.
