St. Patrick’s Day is approaching!  It just would not be the same without corn beef and cabbage!!  This dish is not something I cook year round however, it is that special St. Patrick’s Day treat!  It is so juicy and flavorful!  As a bonus I use the crock pot for this dish and since I used the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner – I am not slaving over an oven nor am I scrubbing pots!  YES, TWO home runs!!

Hi Anne Marie – YES you can use either regular Sherry or Marsala – my first choice would be the regular Sherry (love the flavor) … thank you for visiting – hope you visit often!

I forgot to buy Sherry!!!! Is that ok to omit or will it be ruined?

Hi Petria … no it will not ruin it … but the Sherry does add a nice flavor …

Will the bottle be labeled as ‘cream sherry’? Is it typically in the wine section? I looked today and couldn’t find. Thinking I’m just not certain what I’m looking for. Thanks!

Hi Angela the cream sherry can be found in the liquor store. Some grocery stores sell it that sell drinking wine but I buy mine from the liquor store.

How much liquid should this have in a standard size crock pot? Enough to cover the potatoes?

utokia March 17, 2014 - 6:33 pm

Yes Kate just enough to cover the potatoes. Enjoy
