Corned Beef & a Guiness

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow and it’s time to cook the traditional corned beef. An easy way to slow cook your corned beef without any worry whatsoever is to use a crock pot. With theIMG_2716 addition of apple juice, the corned beef is guaranteed to come out perfectly tender and full of flavor every time.

Place the corned beef in a crock pot, sprinkle with the seasoning packet, and add just enough apple juice to cover. Cook on low for eight hours or high for four. When done you can transfer some of the liquid to a large pot on the stove to boil your cabbage, potatoes, and carrots but if your family is like mine they may prefer a corned beef sandwich on rye bread with a little sauerkraut, melted swiss,  and a touch of thousand island dressing. Don’t forget a crunchy pickle on the side!
