Growing up, we ate Corned Beef and Cabbage.
A pot of corned beef and cabbage is common in the South for dinner. I was not a big fan of the cabbage but loved the flavorful corned beef. Corned beef needs to be cooked low and slow for it to absorb all the different combinations of ingredients that make corned beef burst with flavor. Cooking this Crockpot Corned Beef low and slow allows it to get incredibly tender. I often talk about one benefit of cooking in a crockpot is the tantalizing smell that penetrates the entire house.
Please see my disclosure.
