Every year we make a traditional boiled dinner for St Patrick's Day! I'm not even a little Irish but the man-friend has a wee bit in him so we embrace it :) This year I was cooking the day after St Patrick's day so I headed to WF hoping to find a day after sale on corned beef. No such luck. Holy moly meat is pricey!
I plopped (literally) the beef (which came pre-seasoned) in the crock pot with some garlic, onions, carrots and a beer. Added some water to make sure it was all submerged. Then let simmer on low for a few hours. It smelled good. But I did not taste it. I taste food I'm cooking throughout the entire process and the weirdest part about cooking meat is not knowing if it is flavorful??
I was more interested in using this serving dish I haven't used yet :)
