St. Patrick’s Day Slow Cooker Corned Beef

Nothing is better on St. Patrick’s Day than a hearty dinner of corned beef and cabbage. It’s fattier than most meals I serve, but we like it once a year to celebrate our Irish heritage.

Serve this vegetable rich dinner with Irish soda bread, and you’ve got a full meal.

    We have corned beef and cabbage on a number of Irish holidays, like St. Stephen’s Day (the day after Christmas) and Labour Day (the first Monday in May). You can’t have too much corned beef. πŸ˜€

    Melr, I’d never heard of St. Stephen’s Day. It’s good to have more reasons to celebrate the joy of corned beef!
