And, obviously, I want it in the crock pot.
Unfortunately, in the pre-dinner Easter rush, I had an epic fail and totally forgot to take pictures of the finished product. So you're just going to have to deal with this one instead.
*Slow Cooker Scrumptiousness* Corned Beef
courtesy of the Food Network
2 stalks celery, halved
2 carrots, cubed
1/2 of a medium onion, cubed
2 to 4 red potatoes, quartered
1 2-pound corned beef brisket and corned beef spices
6-ounce bottle stout or dark ale
I chopped my veggies the day before, but the first step would obviously be to prep and chop them. Then, toss the celery, carrots, onions and potatoes in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Rinse the corned beef and place over vegetables.
Add the beer, corned beef spices and enough water to just cover the meat.
If your pot is too small and your beef is too big (I'm an idiot)
It's cool to pull some of the veggies out of the bottom
And use them to push the beef down.
Cover it up and turn to low
Go make the rest of your Easter dinner
Come back in 8 - 9 hours
(If it takes you less time than that to make your Easter dinner,
Slice the beef across the grain (or make your Hubby do it)
Ugh...photo fail...hopefully you get the picture...
Serve with the deliciously slow cooked veggies.
And enjoy the fact that, even though you got the biggest roast at the market,
there are delightfully fewer leftovers than you expected.
