Dinner this evening was supposed to be last Saturday night’s dinner!
Our traditional St. Patrick’s Day dinner was postponed until this evening because we ended up going out of town for the weekend, leaving the corned beef and cabbage untouched in the fridge.
Thankfully both Ryan and I love corned beef and cabbage and were ready to eat it again even though we had Ryan’s grandmother’s version on Saturday night.
To make the corned beef and cabbage I simply placed the following in a slow cooker:
- 1 2-pound corned beef brisket + peppercorns that came with the meat
- 4 large carrots, chopped
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
- 2 bay leaves
- 1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
I placed everything but the cabbage in the crock pot, covered the ingredients in water, and let it cook on high for four hours before adding the cabbage and letting it cook for another hour.
I love one-pot meals!
In case you’re a fan of easy-peasy meals that you can make in the slow cooker, here are some of my favorites:
- Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots
- Corned Beef and Cabbage
- Crock Pot Beef
- Crock Pot Pork Chops and Apple Sauce
- Easiest Pulled Pork Ever
- Salsa Chicken
- Slow Cooker Tacos <—I really need to make this again soon!
- Two Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken
I still want to branch out a bit and try to make some desserts (applesauce?) in the slow cooker.
