  • St. Patrick's Day Feast! Crock pot recipes?

    I just purchased a corned beef brisket from Whole Foods yesterday. I am looking for some crock pot recipes that people out there are using. I have the corned beef, the cabbage, onions, potatoes and garlic. Any ideas?

    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

      Throw everything in crock pot, and cover with beef stock. Cook 10-12 hours. Yum!

        Mine is simmering away right now. With the spice packet and the liquid from the meat, I don't think you need anything else. Just throw it all in the crockpot with some water. Yum

          I'm bad, I only ever use a pressure cooker for my corned beef. In the pressure cooker for an hour, let it de-pressurize. Then I take the meat out to rest and add in all my veggies into the pressure cooker and cook them for about 10 minutes. The best, tastiest corned beef EVER!

            It is getting close to St. Patricks day again, so I will revive this thread. I cover the corned beef with water, bring it to a boil, and then throw out the water and start again (with pickling spice or crab boil, not the little packet of spices it comes with). That reduces it to a more pleasant salt level. I keep it at a low simmer for about 4 hours or until a fork goes in easily, then take out the meat and cook the vegetables in the broth. Supermarket corned beef is made with nitrites; I don't know if some of them wash out with the salt. It can be made at home with just salt but I haven't tried yet.

              Parsnips cooked with corned beef are divine, I also throw in a chunk of peeled horseradish root into the pot for flavor.
