aka St. Patrick’s Day, LOL
I bought my corned beef a week earlier than the holiday so I froze it.
I took it out a day before I was going to use it to defrost in the fridge.
I filled the crock pot – half way with water – added in the spice packet and quasi frozen meat. I turned it to high and left it there for about 12 hours, then I turned it to keep it warm. (This was an overnight ordeal)
I boiled the potatoes in separate water with a dash of salt. I sauteed the cabbage with salted butter and pepper. I didn’t want the veggies and potatoes to be super salty, the meat would be salty enough for all of us. And since I didn’t want to eat with an IV of fluids due to salt intake, this was the best way to go, LOL.
