Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

A few years ago, I tried Corned Beef and Cabbage for the first time and found a new comfort food. The combination of Cabbage, Carrots and Corned Beef was fantastic. This year I thought why not try some appetizers for those St. Patrick’s Day parties. Continue reading “St. Patrick’s Day Appetizers”

Weekly Ad Recipe – Fried Cabbage And Sausage

Weekly Ad Recipe Fried Cabbage And Sausage

I tried this recipe the other night because it was so fast to put together after work and it was great! I have always loved cabbage and I decided to add the Rotel tomatoes to this to give it an awesome little zing. Since the first of this year I really have been watching my carb intake. If you have been too, then this recipe is perfect because it’s low carb. Enjoy… I did!

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage - - Family, Friends & Food with Jayne

It’s March 10th and I’m just counting the days until spring. I love Minnesota winters but enough is enough, bring on spring!  In one week it’s time to celebrate St. Patty’s Day and what is this celebration without Corned Beef and Cabbage?  I may not be Irish but I love an excuse to prepare this delicious entrée. I didn’t know much about Corned Beef a few years ago because I thought it was something technical to make.  This is so not true and is probably one if the easiest recipes.

Corned Beef is traditionally the brisket that is cured in a brine solution along with various seasonings, and then slowly simmered until it’s tender and flavorful. It is best cooked by slow, moist-heat cooking. A good corned beef is tender with a delicious salty flavor. The brine for making corned beef is similar to the brine used for making pickles.

Whether you are simply making corned beef sandwiches or the classic corned beef and cabbage, it’s important that you always slice the corned beef against the grain.

When I purchased the corned beef there are two kinds to choose from, either Flat Cut or Point Cut.  The Point Cut has a little more fat than the flat. The higher fat content the brisket will produce a moister corned beef.

This is how easy it was for me to do.

Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
Serves: 6
  • 3.5 lbs. Corned Beef Brisket & Seasoning Packet included with brisket
  • 1 Onion, cut into wedges
  • 10 Baby Red Potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 16 Oz. Baby Carrots, cut into chunks
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 1 Small Head of Cabbage, cut into wedges
  1. Place the onion, potatoes and carrots in a 5-quart slow cooker.
  2. Pour water over vegetables along with the brine from the Corned Beef.
  3. Place Corned Beef Brisket over vegetables and sprinkle seasoning packet on top of brisket.
  4. Place cabbage on top.
  5. Cover and cook on low until meat and vegetables are tender and internal temperature of brisket reaches 145°F, for approximately 8-9 hours.

If you are lucky enough to have leftovers shred the brisket because they make perfect hot or cold sandwiches the next day.  Enjoy….I did!
