Irish Brisket Crockpot Meal

This is a traditional good luck meal that is served on St. Patrick’s Day. This version of an old favorite makes quick work of a delicious meal. If you want to make it for a larger group just double your ingredients and use a 5 or 6 qt. slow cooker.

This is perfect for a busy St. Patrick’s Day. Put everything in your crockpot in the morning before you head out for parades and festivals. By the time you’re back home, the meal will be ready to eat and the house will smell wonderful. I love this one pot meal and leftovers are great reheated the next day.

Americans: Sorry but corned beef and cabbage is not Irish. It originated in Northern England. Somehow Americans got the idea that it’s Irish and demand Corned Beef and Cabbage in restaurants in Ireland. So now they have to serve it over there just to make American tourists, especially “Irish” Americans, happy.

Brisket and potatoes has really become a go-to meal for us. I used to just make it for St. Patrick’s Day, but the kids actually really like it, it’s super easy to make and the leftovers make awesome sandwiches, so we pick up a brisket or two anytime it’s on sale now.
