A traditional Irish meal made easy!

  • 1/3 C Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Whole Cloves
  • 1 Tsp Allspice
  • 2 Bay Leaves Crushed
  • 1 Tsp Ginger
  • 1/3 C Water
  • 1/3 C Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 5-6# Raw Beef Brisket
  • 1 Head of Cabbage
  • 2 Tbsp Pickling Spice

Rub Salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, black pepper, whole cloves, allspice, bay leaves and ginger all over beef (both sides) Place beef in a large roasting pan and add water and vinegar on top of beef. Cover with foil and bake at 250 Degrees for about 4 hours.

Once fully cooked and tender, cool down over night with all the juices. Place beef in crockpot and cover with water. Add sliced cabbage and pickling spices. Cook for about 4 hours on low or 2 hours on high.

Remove beef carefully and slice thin. Drain cabbage and serve with the beef. Enjoy!

I have never had Corned Beef and Cabbage before, but that sounds and looks so good. I am thinking that I might try to make it.

The corned beef is resting in my fridge for tomorrow...I'm the only one in my family who likes it, but my hubby lets me make it every year! I'm excited to try this sounds so much easier to let the beef cook, rest and then finish in the slow cooker.

I will be trying this in my kitchen this weekend. It sounds so much more flavorful than the recipe I currently use.
