Corned Beef and Red Potatoes and Cabbage

I cooked the corned beef this year in the crock pot. We were so excited to eat I forgot to take a picture. Making the corned beef and potatoes in the crock pot made them both so tender and delicious. Since corned beef requires about 50 minutes of simmering per pound it is hard to make on a weekday if you work all day. So my husband suggested the crock pot, not only was it nice to have dinner done when I got home, it was the best corned beef I have ever made. So here is the recipe!

1 packaged corned beef
8 red potatoes, cut in half
1 small green cabbage, cut into 4 wedges
mustard for your meat if you like

Make It:
Place potatoes on bottom of crock pot. Remove corned beef from package and place on top of potatoes. Add seasoning package to crock pot. Fill with water, to cover corned beef. Set on low for 8 hours. Steam cabbage for about 10-15 minutes until tender, serve with butter or mustard on it. Remove corned beef from crock pot, scrape off fat, and slice. Serve with mustard on top and potatoes and cabbage on the side. Enjoy!
