Slow Cooker Corned Beef & Cabbage recipe on Waiting on MarthaCorned Beef & Cabbage for St. Patrick's Day - Waiting on Martha 

Nothing says St. Patrick’s Day like this traditional one-pot meal.  It’s perfect in a cozy-comforting-savory-tender way.  And I actually just learned that this beloved dish is actually rarely eaten in Ireland!  But it sure makes one heck of a St. Patty’s Day dinner. 

I didn’t do anything fancy with mine, but I have found that I’m particular on a few specifics when cooking it at home.  I always throw it all into my slow cooker, and I always, always cook it low-and-slow for up to eight hours.  You can, of course, cook it on high for four hours, but you’ll have a chewier bite than if you take the slow route, believe me.  I like mine to practically fall off the fork!  And the beauty with corned beef is that it comes pre-seasoned, so you don’t have to fuss with any kind of marinating or additional spices while you’re preparing it to cook.  Find the full recipe below, and tell me – will you be slow cookin’ some corned beef and cabbage next week?!  Truly, MKR

P.S. A nice little suggestion for your leftovers the next day: get some white bread, and make some cold corned beef sandwiches for lunch! My mouth is drooling just thinking about it.  You can plate it traditionally (as shown above) or shred it like your typical brisket sandwich. xo

  2. Cover and cook the corned beef on low for 8-10 hours. (You can cook it on high for 4 hours, but I swear the meat tastes the best with my low-and-slow method!)

Notes
  1. *You can also cook the cabbage separately by boiling it in water for 20 minutes if there isn't enough room in the Crock Pot.

Waiting On Martha’s Build-Your-Own Charcuterie Board

With my very first ever designed product I wanted to put the easy back in entertaining!
Filed Under > "Hostess with the Mostest"

In the 8 years that I’ve had my Blog I’ve written a lot of great posts, I’ve had a lot of amazing partnerships, and I’ve traveled to a lot of dreamy places. Truly, this blog has allowed me to do, see and experience things I never would have imagined in a millions years. But today my Friends, today is one for the books. Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing my first ever designed product; a Build-Your-Own Charcuterie Board. Yep, you heard me right I’ve created a map to the perfect meat and cheese board.

With my first EVER designed product I wanted to put the easy back into entertaining! And there’s nothing more entertaining than a great charcuterie board, but easy they are not. Especially lately when it seems boards are becoming larger and more intricate than ever. So I thought, why not create board that had it all laid out, a map if you will. So thats just what I did, with a little help of course.

First we started with my favorite board that we sell at Waiting On Martha Home, a beautiful 30 x 10 maple wood board from Maple Leaf Designs Texas. We then had the map hand stamped/engraved on to the board in our handwritten font that was made just for Waiting On Martha.

Finally, we had the board fired in the kiln until it reaches a deep walnut brown coloring and finished off with butcher block conditioner. While I originally wanted to keep the board its original light maple color I quickly realized it gets messy. By darkening this thermal ash board you can lay everything directly down on the board then simply wash it away at the end of the night keeping it as functional as it is beautiful.

And that’s it, simply follow the step by step instructions engraved on the board and you’ll have the perfect appetizer board every time! And trust me when I say it will be perfect as I tested it many, many times even measuring out cheese wedges to try to make everything the perfect size. And if you consider yourself an expert we’ve got you covered too. The engraving is easily covered up as so you can feel free to get creative. However, you will find plenty of suggestions and definitions on our map such as: olives, vehicles (with suggestions for different crackers & breads), stinky cheese (with a listing of some of our favorite stinky cheeses), honey, sliced fruits (with suggestions of different fruits), salami with definition of salami, seasonal (with some ideas for seasonal foods), hard cheese (with a listing of some of our favorite hard cheeses), jam,  (with suggestions for different crackers & breads), soft cheese (with a listing of some of our favorite soft cheeses), nuts,  and prosciutto with definition of prosciutto.

This really is the perfect gift to give to yourself or to the host you love the most this holiday season. And from the bottom of my heart thank you to all that have supported me on this journey. It’s been a ride! xo, MKR

Filed Under > 30 Minute Meals

A few weeks ago I had the immense please of partnering with Schumacher and Williams Sonoma Home to share their new, exclusive tabletop and home collection. And trust us, it’s a jaw-dropper so please check it out if you haven’t had the chance yet.

But what would any amazing tabletop be without an equally amazing recipe or two. Lucky for us, this Korean Ground Beef recipe is as easy to make as it is delicious.

Ground beef browns with a perfect combo of sweet and spice through sesame, soy, brown sugar, and Sriracha. Then cooled down by a topping of green onions and cilantro creating the perfect bite. We love this easy Korean Ground Beef for a dinner date for two, or when hosting a few friends. And this is definitely one of those recipes that tastes better the next day, so save those leftovers if there are any!

Check out the recipe below, and please tag us on Instagram or Facebook if you make it. We love to see what recipes of ours you’re whipping up! Truly, MKR

  3. 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  4. 6 cloves garlic minced
  5. 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  6. 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions
  1. Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium pot.
  2. Once boiling add rice and a few pinches of salt.
  3. Let the rice come back to a simmer, cover the pot with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Keep cooking on low for 15 minutes.
  4. After 15 minutes, remove from heat, using a fork mix it around, and put the lid back on to let it continue to cook for 5 minutes or so.
  5. While the rice is cooking, begin browning the ground beef.
  6. Spray a large pan with no-stick spray (I use sunflower, sesame, or avocado oil) then heat over medium high heat.
  7. Brown the meat with sesame oil, garlic and ginger.
  8. Drain the majority of the fat, add brown sugar, soy sauce, and Sriracha.
  9. Cook until the liquid has reabsorbed and not soupy.
  10. Spread over the rice, top with green onions and sesame seeds, and serve.
Notes
  1. **Rinse rice before cooking, it will remove extra starches that can make the rice too sticky**
