now, there is one draw back to making corn beef and cabbage...the smell. i'm willing to take the smelly hit, because my chickens will think it's just great we are celebrating yet, another holiday.
oh, btw...i've decided holidays were made up, to make the winter months a little more enjoyable!
i've added the recipe i'm going to use for corn beef and cabbage. do you have a good recipe?
|the recipe for these little gems is on http://www.familyfun.com/|
|our trap looks NOTHING like this....|
4 cups hot water
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
1 large or 2 medium onions, cut into wedges
1 3-lb. corned beef round or brisket, packaged with spices
8 small white or yellow potatoes, scrubbed and cut into quarters
1 head of green cabbage (about 1 1/2 lbs.), cored and cut into 10 wedges
In a 6-quart electric slow cooker, combine the water, vinegar, sugar, pepper and onions, mixing well. Place the corned beef in the mixture. Scatter the potatoes over the top and along the sides.
Cover and cook on the High heat setting 4 hours. Remove the lid and scatter the cabbage wedges over the top. Cover and continue cooking on High 3 to 4 hours longer, or until the beef is tender. To serve, carve the beef into slices and serve with the cabbage and potatoes, with some of the cooking liquid spooned on top of the beef to keep it moist. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
