Slow Cooker Corned Beef with Rutabaga and Carrots

Corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day is like turkey for Thanksgiving – you just gotta have it! My favorite slow cooker corned beef recipe gets a new twist with rutabaga in place of the potatoes.

Slow Cooker Corned Beef with Rutabaga and Carrots

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Every year I say I am going to make something different, such as an Irish beef stew, shepherd’s pie, or some kind of sausage dish, but always end up resorting to my tried and true slow cooker corned beef. I do change it up with a different glaze or an alternative cabbage preparation but this year had just a small new twist with rutabaga in place of the potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage.

Stick around tomorrow and Thursday for recipes that use up any leftovers you may have after today’s feast!
