Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone!!

Nothing says Irish, like some good ol’ fashioned corned beef, am I right?! This year we forgot to grab, a brisket in time to pickle it ourselves, so we bought a pre-seasoned one. We bought Rachel’s brand (if you’ve heard of it), and it’s looking great so far, in the Crock Pot. We’re cooking it on low for 8 hours, and added the onions and carrots at the 4 hour mark. I know cabbage is traditional, but we just aren’t feeling it this year. Being able to set this-forget it, and come back to a fully cooked meal in hours, is a wonderful thing…especially when beer will be involved later tonight 😉

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone!!

So, the brining is done, and now it’s on to the slow cooking goodness of the crockpot!! I layered the crockpot with small potatoes, carrots, onions, mushrooms and garlic. Then placed the brisket on top with sliced cabbage around it. Added a tablespoon more of the pickling spices, 1 can of Kilkenny ale and water until almost covering the brisket. I then set it on LOW for 8hrs.

Once it was done, it wasn’t much to look at, but the brisket turned out really yummy!! The veggies were good too, but next time I’ll cook them less. I’ll definitely make this again, for the pure simplicity of it, and the omnomnom goodness!!

Brining for St. Patty’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is this coming Sunday, and my hubby and I are attempting to brine a brisket, to make corned beef and cabbage. This will be our first time, so we’re hoping for the best LOL Now to let the brine cool off over night, before we soak the brisket in it, until Sunday. We used the recipe below for the brine…easy peasy lemon squeezy!!
