Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
If there’s one region of the country that can lure Southerners out of the South, it’s New England. Chalk it up to a shared appreciation for small towns with historic charm and a coastline with plenty of stories to tell. Mention New England, and we start having visions of maple trees in blazing fall color, crystalline lakes, snow-covered forests, and cozy inns with roaring fireplaces—or cozy inns with no humidity in the summertime. We picture a lighthouse on a rugged bluff, guiding ships at sea, and cottages that have dotted the landscape for centuries. Can’t make the trip north right now? Here’s a dish guaranteed to take you there. Our Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage, a.k.a., New England Boiled Dinner, features a spicy brisket with cabbage, carrots, and potatoes. It’s simple comfort food, which you can simplify even more if you’d prefer basic corned beef and cabbage—just drop the other vegetables and enjoy.
