Corned Beef and Cabbage

In spite of the St. Patrick's Day confusion this year, I am making my corned beef and cabbage today. No green beer, though.

My dad used to make his corned beef and cabbage in the pressure cooker. I make mine in the crock pot with potatoes. The recipe suggests pouring the liquid from the beef over the cabbage at the last minute to steam it separately. Another suggests putting the cabbage wedges in with the beef for the last 10 minutes of cooking. I haven't decided which I'm going to do yet.

So how'd you end up cooking the cabbage? Inquiring minds want to know.

I put the cabbage wedges on top of the meat for about 45 minutes. They turned out great! I even made ds a Reuben out of his part of the corned beef!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
