Beer-Braised Corned Beef and Cabbage
The Recipe: Beer-Braised Corned Beef and Cabbage from the February 2011 Canadian Living.
The Substitutions: None
The Verdict: Well, I thought it was delicious. They're hardly reinventing the wheel with this recipe -- it's your basic slow-cooker corned beef brisket with winter vegetables. You throw the stuff in the slow cooker (after browning the veg), put the lid on it and go about your day. I felt my Irish heritage coming through as I ate it. My husband, who has apparently never had corned beef before thought it was weird. This makes me sad, because if it was up to me I'd be making this once a week all winter long.
