The verdict is in and the jury says… OK.
First problem is I don’t think I had it on high setting initially, so it took longer to cook than I thought. When it was done finally, I tasted it and it wasn’t bad. Not as fantastic as I thought it would be, but pretty good. Way better than the crockpot baked bean fiasco, that’s for sure. Perhaps it was because I had so many vegetables, so I had to add lots of water, and it diluted the flavor. I should have cut the potatoes into smaller chunks. Everything got cooked alright, the potatoes should just have been in more bite sized pieces.
The corned beef was cooked through, but cut better after it had cooled some. It does shrink, so I’ll get a larger one next time. Might use it to make corned beef hash and sandwiches later on in the week.
Still, I got 7 20-oz tupperware containers full, not including the corned beef. And then there’s still an entire head of cabbage I didn’t use. Maybe I’ll give colcannon a shot, I’ve got plenty of other potatoes.
