So here's the recipe! Erin Go Bragh Everyone!
Clean "Corned" Beef Roast and Cabbage with Potatoes
1 beef roast (grain fed of course)(choose a size that fits your family, I found a medium sized one for about $10)
1 small head of green cabbage -chopped
1/2 cup of carrots -sliced
5-7 golden russet potatoes -sliced for faster cooking
1/2 cup of onion - roughly chopped
2 cups of chicken or beef stock
water (depending on the size of your slow cooker this amount with differ)
Sea Salt to taste
Garlic to taste
Black Pepper to taste
Brining: place beef roast in large container (I just used my slow cooker insert) then cover with chicken stock and water (if needed) until beef roast is submerged. Add Sea Salt generously (I used about 3-4 tbls from a hand mill the liquid will be cloudy as it is saturated with salt), Garlic and Black Pepper. Let your beef roast soak overnight (as I stated above this could be done longer maybe for 1 day or so) When you remove the beef roast from the brine it will be sort of gray-ish in color (this freaked me out) - remain calm! This is normal!
Slow Cooker: Place beef roast in slow cooker with potatoes, carrots, onions and cabbage. Cover with Chicken stock or water and season with salt, pepper and garlic again to taste - I love garlic so I use a lot! Turn slow cooker on low and leave the mixture to cook for about 7-8 hours - perfect for while you are at work! Once mixture is cooked through and meat is very tender and potatoes are cooked through you can remove the roast and slice it up and serve with a side of the veggies. Enjoy!
