Give yourself a break too by bringing the slow cooker into action and letting it do all the work while you sit back and enjoy the holiday.

Corned beef refers to the beef that is treated with corns of salt that both preserves and flavors the meat. It is considered native to the Irish cuisine, and goes well together with mustard as given in the recipe. Conventionally, the beef and vegetables are just boiled together.
