The unfortunate part about St. Patrick’s Day this year is that it fell on a Wednesday (a.k.a. the busiest day of the week when I am least likely to cook.) Fortunately, corned beef and veggies is one of THE EASIEST things to make, so if you haven’t already done so, follow these quick steps and make some corned beef while you’re still feeling a little Irish!
Step 1: In the morning, remove the corned beef from its packaging and place it in a crock pot… don’t forget to sprinkle the package of spices on top of the meat!
Step 2: Fill a tea kettle with water and bring to a boil, then pour this over the corned beef, submerging it completely.
Step 3: Set the crock pot to a low heat and go to work/school/the store/wherever it is that you lovelies go all day.
Step 4: About 2 hours before you’re planning to eat, put your veggies into the crock pot with the meat and the water.
Step 5: Once the veggies are done, so are you! Remove the food, drain any excess water, and enjoy!
It was soo delish. Travis actually said, “Mmmm, you are so good.” I call that a success.
Don’t forget: Corned beef is also great for breakfast, so if you made some last night, use the leftovers this morning and enjoy a delicious scramble!
