Super easy, doesn't have to be just for St. Patty's Day any more!!

1 Corned beef in the bag
4-6 small red skinned potatoes, halved or quartered, depending on personal taste
1 bag baby peeled carrots
1 small green cabbage, leaved out.
1 package "Hawaiian" rolls (optional)

First thing the morning, get the crock pot (prefer the oval shaped ones to the round one) ready (ie: make sure it's both plugged in AND turned on...oops!). Cut the bag that the corned beef and slide the beef into the crock pot, fat-side-up. Pour water into the bag to get the jelly out and pour that into the crock pot too. I usually just cut the potatoes in half as they're usually the size of golfballs to the size of small tangerines. Put these ON the corned beef, not around it as the skin will stick to the ceramic. I use an entire 1 lb bag of baby peeled carrots as that's one of the few veggies my DH will eat, so I encourage him to eat as much as I can. These can be on, around, wherever, the beef. Make sure that there's at least 1" of water/jelly around the beef & set it to LOW. Let cook for about 7-8 hours (work). When you get home (or 1/2 hour before you eat), put the cabbage into a sauce pot & fill 2/3 w/water and at least 1/3 cup juice from crock pot. Simmer on medium for at least 20 minutes, or until desired tenderness. 15 minutes before you eat, pull beef out of crock pot & let "rest" on a carving surface. If you don't let it rest, it could just dissolve. If you let it "rest", it'll firm back up and it's a bit easier to cut. Cut into desired sized pieces, spoon carrots & potatoes out of crock pot, and if there's any left over juices (should be), put into a small sauce pan. Heat on medium, add some water w/corn startch to make a corned beef gravy. Serve gravy over potatoes. Eat with "Hawaiian" rolls (or "Pillsbury" Buttery Grands biscuits).

YUM!

Prep time: approx. 10-12 minutes. Cook time: 8 hours.

Marti discovered putting the corned beef in the oven, covered with foil for first 2 hours, then removing it for the remainder 2 - 3 hours depending on size/weight kept it from shrinking so much and it was still juicy and tender. The vegetables were done in the slow cooker, potatoes, carrots and chicken broth, salt and pepper, parsley and 1/2 onion. This cooked for the 3 - 4 hours that the meat was in the oven. It is do good and we eat it anytime we can get corned beef reasonably priced.

LaVonne - what I do is when the corned beef goes on sale near St. Patty's day, I just throw a couple on the freezer. But this past year, they never went on sale and stayed right at $3.99/lb. :( Last year, I picked up some for like $1.49/lb, which was awesome! :)
