Jackie's Apple Corned Beef

I love how Gooseberry Patch is getting in the holiday spirit. :) They're free recipe this week is just perfect for St. Patty's Day! It's making me so hungry just reading it. Everything just sounds yummy!

Jackie's Apple Corned Beef

8 new redskin potatoes
4 to 5 carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
1 onion, cut into 8 wedges
3-lb. corned beef brisket
4 c. apple juice
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1 T. Dijon or honey mustard

Arrange potatoes, carrots and onion wedges in a slow cooker; top with corned beef. Stir together apple juice, brown sugar and mustard; pour over top. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 to 10 hours. Slice meat thinly across the grain. Serve with cooked vegetables, Sautéed Cabbage and some of the cooking liquid. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Sautéed Cabbage: 1/2 head cabbage, shredded 1/2 c. onion, chopped 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 to 2 T. butter salt and pepper to taste. In a skillet over medium heat, sauté cabbage, onion and garlic in butter until soft. Add salt and pepper to taste; serve warm.

And honestly, this recipe is making me so hungry! Let me know if you try it out. Or leave me some of your favorite St. Patty's Day recipes. Happy Wednesday! ♥
