She won, by the way, with her corned beef recipe!

Corned Beef and Cabbage
(My mom’s traditional!)

Ingredients:
1 corned beef roast with spice packet
1 head green cabbage
1 lb. russet potatoes, peeled

Buy a corned beef that is packaged with a packet of spices included. Put this into a crock pot (the beef, and open the packet of spices and throw it in). Cover with water, turn crock pot on and cook about 5-7 hours on crock pot setting. The last hour, I throw in a fresh cabbage that is cut into large wedges, and I peel potatoes, put them into the water around the beef, lay the cabbage wedges on top. Mmmmm, when it’s done, it’s so tender, and the potatoes and cabbage are just saturated with the flavor of the cooked corned beef; Also, makes great sandwiches the next day (the beef, that is!)
