This recipe looks really good. My mom made this growing up every year and I always looked so forward to it.

The crock pot version of corned beef is good too..although I'm not a huge cabbage fan either way. Anyone else making this for St. Patty's?

Does anyone have a preference on corned beef and cabbage in the oven or a slow cooker? I've tried the slow cooker recipe and was thinking about trying this one for a last-minute dinner.
