Martha Stewart slow cooker corned beef dinner

This is a good recipe. Dump ingredients in pot, set to low and 8 hours later, tender beef and root veggies for a yummy dinner.
I used a 3 pound tri corned beef.
I substituted beef stock for the water and since I don't like cabbage, I left it out.
Serve with horseradish sauce.



Bake several grilled cheese at once

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Warm two baking sheets in oven in lower half and super half oven racks.
Butter bread and add cheese. Assemble and place sandwiches on baking sheet.
Place second baking sheet or top of sandwiches and place in oven in lower rack of oven.

Alternate method:
