A Winter recipe! and...

So Chookyblue was asking the other day about favorite crockpot/slow cooker recipes. I may be a little late but I will still share mine!
SILVERSIDE (OR CORNED BEEF) IN THE CROCKPOT
I love this cooked this way, makes it so tender. I usually cook 2 pieces at once, one for a hot meal and one for sandwiches for the week.
Put the piece of silverside in the crockpot and cover with water.
Also add:
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
12 peppercorns
2 bayleaves
1 chopped onion
1 carrot
Will take 6 hours on High or 8-10 hours on Auto
Enjoy!

Further to the purchase of the boots , they were a necessary evil as apparently I comitted 'social suicide' the weekend before wearing runners with my jeans - a definate no no, who knew????!!!!!!

Your corned beef recipe is the same as mine except I add a slosh of white vinegar too.

My biggest trouble is getting a good piece of silverside - Woolies is often disappointing - one I had last week wasn't corned very well and was tough even after about 5-6 hours in the slow cooker. Grrr!

I hope everything is going along okay for your hubby...
