Irish Dinner

204. HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!
and
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET SISTER!

Our Irish Dinner was delicious today! What an easy meal to put together with great results.
My honey picked up a flat cut beef brisket at the supermarket.
The meat was beautiful. It was surrounded with brine, beautiful layer of fat,
and, a seasoning packet was included.
What a wonderful little collection of spices...I definitely used them.
I pulled out my slow cooker, placed the meat in the bottom and sprinkled the glorious spices over the meat.
Then poured cold water and covered the meat completely. Then plugged in the pot, set it on high for 6 hours, and off I went.

This is how lovely the meat looked after 6 hours and the smell was intoxicating!
In a large pot I placed cut cabbage, potatoes and carrots.
Placed the meat on top and then poured the hot liquid over all.
I brought this to a boil till the veggies were tender.
And this was the finished product! Wonderful!
The meat just melted in your mouth.
If you've never attempted Corned Beef and Cabbage because you thought it was difficult, think again. This meal is so simple...it's stupid!

"It is easy to be pleasant when life flows by like a song, but the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong. For the test of the heart is trouble, and it always comes with years, and the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through the tears."

I'm copying your idea! We dashed off and got the ingredients to make a St Patty's Day dinner for my husband! Complete with a Key Lime Pie for dessert!

LOL, we had the same brand! I did it in a pot with ginger ale, and it was delicious.
My Polish college friend taught me frying the cabbage with onions and bacon, and I will never go back to the way my mom made it!
Happy Spring, Lilly! Our Lily turned 10 yesterday. Time flies!
