Corned Beef and Cabbage

There is nothing more classically Irish than Corned Beef and Cabbage. Growing up, my sister and I would beg my mom to make it for dinner at least once a month, not just at St. Patrick’s Day.

Cook Time
8 hr
Ingredients
  1. 1 corned beef
  2. 1 head savoy cabbage
  3. 2-3 yukon gold potatoes per person
  4. water
  5. whole grain mustards
  6. horseradish
Instructions
  1. Start by buying a corned beef that is already flavored and has the spices included. Next, you’ll need a head of cabbage (I like Savoy, curly leafed cabbage as it’s a bit more delicate in texture and flavor than regular cabbage), and finally 2 or 3 Yukon gold potatoes per person.
  2. Place the corned beef in a large slow cooker, cover with 5 cups of water, or just enough to cover the beef. Set slow cooker on low for 8 hours.
  3. After 2 hours of cooking, add in the potatoes and continue to cook.
  4. With 1 hour of cook time remaining, core and slice the cabbage in wedges and place into the slow cooker. Try to nestle the wedges into the liquid — you may have to gently lift potatoes out and then replace on top.
  5. At the end of the 8 hours, remove the beef, scrape off the layer of fat and then slice into 1/2 inch thick slices going across the grain.
To serve
  1. Place the sliced beef in the center of a large platter and then spoon the potatoes around on one side and lay the wedges of cabbage on the opposite side. Enjoy with whole grain mustards and horseradish.
