Erin Go Braugh!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I made a corned beef in the crock pot. Last night, I took out the beef and rinsed it off. I put it in. Dutch oven and covered it in clear water. I place the pot on HIGH on the stove until it came to a boil. I turned it down and let it simmer on MED Low for 10 minutes. The purpose of this was to rid the roast of some of the sodium. Most of the packaged roasts have over 1100 MG of Sodium, and that can do a number on your system. After simmering, I removed the brisket from the water, set it on a plate, and put it in the fridge uncovered for 15 minutes. After that, I wrapped the corned beef in foil and refrigerated overnight.
