VB, that sounds so good. We didn't do a corned beef for St. Paddy's Day and we all are feeling the pinch. I've never cooked one in the slow cooker, how does it compare to the boil in water method? I'd like to try it for a change.

I'm not sure.. I have never boiled it. The crock-pot is the only way I have ever cooked it. I put potatoes, carrots and onion in with it. I use 2 cups apple cider/juice for a 2 1/2 lb roast. The rest is water just until the meat is covered. Seasonings are the packet that comes with it and 2 bay leaves.

Coming back to add... this is the second time we have had corned beef since St Paddy's Day. It is one of Mark's fav. meals.

we had corned beef yeaterday with cabbage and red potatoes.

i have done corned beef boiled and in a slow cooker and in the microwave. they all taste good to me. i have never cooked one in the oven (mine friend always does his in the oven). the one i made yesterday was so tender after boiling for 3 hours it fell apart and turned itself into shreds!! LOL

Black beans with sauteed red onion, in a San Marzano tomato sauce with chipotle pepper and spices. Served with spiced brown rice.
