Even though I am vegetarian (no meat), a few times a year, I take a break. St. Patrick's Day is one such day when I make this recipe. It is so easy because you just put everything into the Crock Pot except the cabbage and let it cook all day. Then, add the cabbage at the end for a delicious Irish meal. Serve it with Irish soda bread, which is fresh-baked at the local grocery store, and add cream cheese for a spread. Very healthy!

A fantastic way to prepare a St. Patrick's Day favorite. The main attraction - the corned beef - is tender and juicy. It slices like butter. The carrots and potatoes are perfectly tender as well. Adding cabbage to the slow cooker at the end of cooking keeps it from getting mushy. Pouring the broth over the veggies and sliced corned beef keeps everything warm.
