Did everyone have a nice weekend? Did you all have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Our weekends go way to fast, it's all a blur!
Although we are not Irish, we did enjoy two St. Paddy's Meals!
Sunday is my cooking day, the stove and the oven were being used for our weekly meals, I didn't know how and when I would make the Corn Beef and Cabbage!
4 large potatoes peeled and cut into chunks.
3 carrots peeled and cut into chunks.
1 head of cabbage + 1 small onion (used with the cabbage)
2 1/2 lbs Corned beef fat trimmed plus pickling spices it comes with.
1/2 bottle of stout or dark beer.
Water to cover
Layer your vegetables (not the cabbage) on the bottom of the crock-pot place the corn beef on top of the vegetables.
Sprinkle the pickling season.
Pour the beer on top and then add enough water to cover.
Cook on high for 4 hours. During this time check on it, skimming any foam that rises.
After 4 hours slice up the cabbage, saute in olive oil with a pat of butter, and one small onion sliced.
Fry until the cabbage is wilted and browned along with the onion.
