Corned Beef and Cabbage

Every year for St. Patrick's Day since my husband and I started dating I have made him a corned beef and cabbage stew.

Ingredients: 2 stalks of celery halved, 4 carrots sliced, 1 medium onion cut into 4 wedges, 4-6 red potatoes quartered, corned beef brisket with spices, 12 ounce stout or dark ale and 1 medium head of cabbage sliced.
Place celery, carrots, onion and potatoes in the crock pot. Rinse the beef brisket and place it over the vegetables. Pour in the stout or dark ale, spices and enough water to fully cover the meat. Cook for 8 hours. 

 Remove the meat and vegetables and cover them with foil. Place the sliced cabbage into the liquid in the crock pot and cook on high for 30 minutes or until soft.

"May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you."
~Irish Blessing
