Before I left for work, I placed a large piece of corned beef in the crock pot with four bay leaves, 6 cups of water, pepper, and 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar.
(I would like to add that I cut the biggest hunk of fat off this meat before putting it in the slow cooker. Gross!)
When we arrived home after work, the apartment smelled unbelievable. Corned beef is so aromatic and the scent of it in the air made my mouth water almost immediately.
Before digging into dinner, we took Sadie to the dog park to run off some of her never-ending energy.
Even though playing fetch, sniffing around and running the trails are Sadie’s top priorities when we’re at the park, she still makes some time for some lovin’.
When we arrived home, the smell was as strong as ever!
It took some serious patience to wait 20 minutes after adding the chopped cabbage to the crock pot to dig into our Irish feast. What choice did we have though? We needed to have cabbage with our corned beef!
Finally it was time!
I filled my plate with three slices of the corned beef and copious amounts of cabbage.
I love this meal. It really is one of my all-time favorites!
