Corned beef and cabbage in the slow cooker. Update!!

Ok so I have to say that the corned beef turned out great it was really good. I ate mine dipped in a little horseradish sauce and it tasted really similar to Arbys roast beef sandwich with Horsey sauce. If you are not sure about the corned beef or you just want a great one to try this is for sure the go to recipe. Everyone in the family loved it.

5 lbs Corned beef
1/2 the packet of seasoning it comes with
6-7 med red potato's
1/2 tsp pepper
2 Med onions sliced
3 T White Vinegar
3T sugar
2 Cups water
1 Head Cabbage chopped and quartered

1.Wash potato's and chop in to chunks and place on bottom of slow cooker. Top with meat, 1/2 the seasoning packet and onions.

2.Mix together the water,sugar,pepper and vinegar and pour over the top of the meat.

3.Cover and cook on low 8-10 hrs or high 6-7 hrs.

4.Remove the meat and potato's and cover with foil to keep warm. Place the cabbage in the pot with all the juices from the meat and cook on high until soft about 25 min.
* I was not to sure about the cabbage cooking in the slow cooker it seemed to be taking a long time to get soft and so after about 15 min I took it out of the crock pot and just put it in a pan with about 1/2 inch water and steamed it for about 10 min it was perfect just the right amount of crunch.
