Easy Slow Cooker Corned Beef

T-minus four days until St. Paddy’s Day. 

Is it me, or did March 17th sneak up on us? 

Once daylight savings time hit I have had tunnel vision. Just get me to SPRING! I can’t be the only one ready for greener pastures and sun-filled days. 

Anyway, something I just thought of since St. Paddy’s falls on a Sunday, do people still get the day off from Lent? I feel like it would be weird to drink green beer on a Sunday, but maybe I’m just old? I dunno. 

Either way, I do have a full menu planned for the Irish holiday. I have been dreaming about scones ever since my mom and I left Ireland in December. Definitely making a big batch and to go along this Easy Slow Cooker Corned Beef.

Easy Slow Cooker Corned Beef

I looked through the CGM archives and found zero recipes for corned beef. After ten years of blogging you would think I would have had my act together and created a tried and true recipe. Well, forgive me for my shortcomings because this version of corned beef is flipping easy. 

Like throw everything into the slow cooker, set it and forget it! This Easy Slow Cooker Corned Beef will be a go-to year after year. And don’t feel like you have to make it just for St. Paddy’s Day. Mr. B is a hooker for some corned beef and cabbage so I will definitely be making this when I’m out of town. 

I’ve got food covered, but what should I get Juniper? Stay tuned!
