Recipe To Try - Corned Beef, Cabbage, Colcannon...it's not just for St. Patrick's Day
I've made this meal the past two St. Patrick's Day. I love it because it's all cooked in the crock pot at the same time, yet it turns in to three separate dishes.
I found the recipe on Pinterest and here it is. The only way I didn't follow the recipe was I didn't glaze the corned beef - only because I didn't have any apricot preserves laying around. The corned beef turned out fabulous anyway. I was surprised that even my pickiest eaters loved the meat.
The cabbage was all mine because nobody in this family will touch it with a ten-foot pole. Eating all that cabbage also makes for a nice, peaceful evening alone because for some reason or another, nobody wanted to be in the same room with me. I consider that a win/win - lol!
And then here's the delicious colcannon which oddly enough my husband ate even though it has cabbage in it...maybe it's because he didn't know there was cabbage in it. I'm sneaky like that.
