Corned beef is not just for St. Patrick’s Day. Heck in our family we often have it during any other holiday or when we visit my grandparents. My grandma learned how to make delectable corned beef from my great aunt who adds potatoes, rutabagas and cabbage to her recipe.
Now… I tend to get my corned beef at Aldi’s. This ironically is the same place where my grandma gets hers and we often stock up when it is on sale. There are two different cuts of corned beef, a point cut and a flat cut. Both are equally delicious, but my grandpa prefers the flat cut which is leaner without a lot the intramuscular marbling.
1 3-5lb corned beef with seasoning packet
1 onion chopped
1 8oz can of beer
Place corned beef with the fat side up in a 6 quart crock pot.
Sprinkle seasoning packet on top of the corned beef.
Place chopped onions on top of the corned beef.
Pour 1 can of beef on the side of the corned beef and the crock pot. Do not pour over the meat. (I used a larger can, so that I could have some leftovers as a quality sample 😉)
Place lid on and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Enjoy with potatoes and your favorite veggie!
Hope you enjoy this recipe. Have a save and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
