    size of crock pot, size of hunka corned beef you get.

    Recipe I start from ~

    4cups hot water
    2TBSPN balsamic vin.
    2TBSPNS sugar
    1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
    1 large or 2 med. onions, cut into wedges
    1 (3 lb.) corned beef round or brisket packaged with spices
     ( may have to cut it into 2 pcs )
    8 small white or yellow potatoes scrubbed and cut into quarters
    ( I like to use some rutabaga and carrots and less taters )
    1 head of green cabbage, cored and cut into wedges

    1- In a 6qt. electric cooker, combine water, sugar,vinegar, pepper and onions, mixing well. Place the corned beef in the mixture. Scatter the other cut up vegetables ( except the cabbage) over the top and along the sides.
    2- Cover and cook on high heat for four hours. Remove lid and place the cabbage wedges over the top and continue cooking on high for 3- 4 hours longer or until the beef is tender. To serve, carve the beef into slices and serve with cabbage and vegetables, with some of the cooking liquid spooned over it.

     I remembered only one hour for the cabbage - I have not read this recipe in a long time, because it is so simple. I like to serve it in large shallow bowls, we love the broth almost as much as everything else. The rutabaga and carrot makes it richer and sweeter than just potatoes.

      M-M-M, some-old good !
