I had a hankering for some corned beef & cabbage for supper so I cooked it all day in the crock.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

St. Patrick's Day is not complete without corned beef and cabbage and this Crock Pot recipe is an easy meal for your family. The recipe includes a ham base that increases the flavor of the dish. Adding butter on top melts into the cabbage while cooking and gives it a savory buttery flavor. The corned beef is perfectly tender and slices beautifully.
