Plus, I do not care who you are or where you came from, everyone loves a warm, hearty meal when it is a bit cold out. If you do not, you are a liar. 

The home made corned beef really made a difference and the meat just melted in my mouth.

I mentioned corned beef with a spice packet in this recipe but I actually used home made corned beef and used the simmering spices for the salt packet. Definitely worth doing at least once.

Since I had so much corned beef, I actually doubled this recipe but it used 2 slow cookers in order to accomplish that.
