Corn Beef and Cabbage

One word - Delicious!!!

Corn Beef and Cabbage

small bag of pre-cut carrots
2 onions, chopped
2-3 lb corned beef brisket with seasoning packet
can of lager beer (I used Bud Lite because that's what I had in the fridge)
yellow mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
salt and pepper

Rinse corn beef under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels.  In crockpot, combine carrots and onions.  Pour in can of beer.  Mix water and brown sugar.  Pour in crockpot.  Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.  Put corn beef in crockpot.  Spread corn beef with mustard.  Sprinkle seasoning packet on top of corn beef.  Cook on low setting for 11-12 hours. One hour before you're ready to serve, remove corn beef from crockpot, wrapping in foil to keep warm.  Cut cabbage in wedges and add to vegetables and liquid in crockpot.  Cover and cook on high until cabbage becomes tender.  To serve, cut corn beef across the grain into thin slices or shred.  Remove vegetables with slotted spoon and serve with corn beef.  Additional mustard can be served on the side.

Note:  Sometimes I add potatoes, sometimes I don't -- this time I did not.

This is what it looks like when you put it in the crockpot.
