Corned beef and Cabbage By Freda
Feel free to add an extra vegie to your meal, or go with the Suggestions in this recipe.
I cook mine in a dutch oven, But you can cook in crock pot it just takes a bit longer.
I have also cooked my meat in the Pressure Cooker, but for very short time, or you'll have mush and ruin your dinner. Then add vegies after the meat has cooked.
