May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.– Irish Blessing
The consumption of corned beef is often associated with St. Patrick’s Day. BUT corned beef is not considered an Irish national dish…….what??? The connection between corned beef and St. Patrick’s Day originates actually as a part of the Irish-American culture; along with the glittery shamrocks and cereal box leprechauns.
But it’s SOO delicious! You can cook corned beef multiple different ways but I prefer in the slow-cooker. No more dry corned beef!! When cooking in a slow cooker all day you can’t go wrong. Very easy, no mess, perfectly cooked beef – always serve with soda bread to bring you LUCK all year long!
- Bag of baby carrots
- 10 baby red potatoes, quartered

- Place carrots, potatoes, onions into the bottom of a slow cooker, pour in the water, and place the brisket on top of the vegetables. Sprinkle on the spices from the packet, cover, and set the cooker on Low.
- Cook the brisket for 8 hours on low. An hour before serving put cabbage in slow cooker. Continue cooking.
Serve with your favorite beer, soda bread and enjoy the luck of the Irish!
