Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Potatoes

This was a super quick meal we threw together in the morning but was delicious to enjoy in the evening.
We had a 3.5 lb of pre-seasoned corned beef that we put into the slow cooker. Let cook for about 6 hours on low, then added some quartered golden yukon potatoes and switched to high for the last 2 hours. Resulting in super yummy and super soft corned beef!

Served!

Still in the slow cooker

Ingredients:

3-4 lb pre-seasoned corned beef brisket
5-6 quartered golden yukon potatoes

Directions:

1. Place the corned beef in the slow cooker. Cover with water and cook on low for about 6 hours.
2. Add in the quartered potatoes and change to high. Cook for another 2 hours. 

What we liked:

Super quick and easy to assemble and turned out great! We also used the left over meat for some great twice baked potatoes (recipe to follow!)

What we didn't like:

It cools down quite quickly on a plate... but that wasn't the dish's fault, it was one of those nights where it takes over an hour to get to actually sitting down and eating dinner.. and that's after placing the food on the plate :) 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He loved the potatoes. Not so much into the meat. Astrid however, enjoyed both greatly!

Next time:

No changes needed, but perhaps we could try our own seasonings for the corned beef brisket?
