Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Porn, Holiday, Recipes

I know it’s traditional to make Corned Beef and Cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day, but I didn’t want to make the same old thing I do every other year. So I found this recipe, which adds a bit more flavor. It was excellent even without potatoes (trying to lay off the carbs somewhat). The flavor is kind of hard to describe – sweet and savory and spicy all at the same time. I don’t think I’ll ever do corned beef and cabbage any other way again.

    Hmmm, I may have to try adding the brown sugar and cider next time we make corned beef, which is at least once a month (we eat it year round). We always add a bottle of dark beer too, as it makes a wonderful flavor.
