Corned Beef and Cabbage

St. Patrick's Day is a holiday we look forward to every year because it means corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread and potatoes. Andy said it is the "best meal of the year"!

This corned beef is so easy to do in the crock pot and is so tasty! It makes you feel like you have "the luck of the Irish"!
1 onion, sliced
2 1/2 - 3 lbs of corned beef brisket
1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp orange zest
6 whole cloves
2 tsp prepared mustard
6 cabbage wedges

Place brisket in crock pot. Combine apple juice, brown sugar, orange zest, cloves and mustard. Pour over brisket. Place cabbage and onions on top.

Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours.
