Apple & Brown Sugar Corned Beef

This is a great crockpot recipe for corned beef from the "Fix It and Forget It" cookbook (I've edited it a bit). I've made it before and it's a nice contrast with the slightly sweet apple/brown sugar flavor and the saltiness of the corned beef. The leftovers make for great sandwiches the next day. Yum!

Apple & Brown Sugar Corned Beef

2 1/2 - 3lb corned beef brisket
3 medium potatoes, quartered
1/2 lb baby carrots
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
4 - 4 1/2 cups of apple juice (add enough to cover the corned beef if this isn't quite enough)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Place meat, potatoes, carrots, and onion in 6 quart slow cooker.

Combine next 5 ingredients and pour into slow cooker. Cover. Cook on high 6-6 1/2 hours or low 10-12 hours or until veggies and meat are tender. When serving, pour excess juice from the crockpot over the top of beef and vegetables.
