What better way to celebrate the middle of March than with a succulent corned beef and all the trimmings?


I use a large (5-6 qt) slow cooker for this recipe. If you have a smaller (3 1/2 to 4 quart) cooker, cut the brisket in pieces to fit.

Because the cabbage is cooked separately after meat is finished, it doesn't impart its strong flavor to the other vegetables.
