Paleo Corned Beef & Cabbage

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
"May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live..."

3-4 lb. corned beef brisket (I trimmed the thick layer of fat off the bottom)
2 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic
ground black pepper

Put corned beef, pepper, garlic, bay leaves in crock pot and pour just enough water to cover beef. Cook on low for 8 hours.

I did the cabbage a little different this year. I was gone all day, so instead of adding the cabbage and veggies to the crock pot, I just cooked them up separately when I got home... about 30 minutes before serving.

1 head cabbage, quartered
1 onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic
2 carrots, sliced
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 C corned beef juice from the crock pot!

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Add carrots, and a splash of the broth. Add cabbage, remaining broth and cover. Cook until cabbage is done about 20 minutes.
Slice corned beef and serve over the cabbage! Sprinkle with a little more black pepper and celtic grey sea salt (optional). Hope you enjoy!

And here's another Irish blessing for you! (I just love St. Patty's Day). YES, I'm Irish, 100% (more or less).

Here's to you and yours

And to mine and ours.

And if mine and ours

Ever come across to you and yours,

I hope you and yours will do

As much for mine and ours

As mine and ours have done

For you and yours!

I'm gonna have to remember this post next St. Patty's Day. My corned beef didn't look this good! Love the quotes and poems. Sweet like you.
