I wonder if anyone knows how long small red potatoes take to cook in a slow cooker? 4 hours enough?

Wifey used the small red ones in the CB&C yesterday and they were in for the whole time and could have used a little bit more.  Next time, she's planning on cutting them at least in half.

So, along the same lines I was thinking about adding my potatoes and carrots about half way through the total cook time to keep them from getting mushy. I wonder if anyone knows how long small red potatoes take to cook in a slow cooker? 4 hours enough?

On low yes but on high even less. It also depends on how big the potato pieces are that your cooking. The smaller the pieces the less cooking time required. Check them with a fork...if they're fork tender they're done. Basically time and temperature. Boy...I bet the Capster is stewing right about now with all of this slow cooker talk.  :D

If you take one flat trimmed corned beef & slow cook it all night then add Yukon Gold potatoes, carrots, cabbage, sweet Vidalia onion & leeks with some secret country Irish spices thrown in for good measure... then it comes out something like this.   :D

Secret country Irish spices?  LOL!  You mean salt, and on special occasions pepper, right?

I'm a huge apologist for the cuisines of the British Isles, and but for a few imports for the colonies (mostly in England proper) their spices are about as basic as they get.  Which is part of the allure...nothing like good British (or Irish) food for showcasing the natural flavours of good meat and vegetables.

Ha! Ha! I was wondering if anyone would catch or comment on my "secret country Irish spices?"  Secret country Irish spices = cracked pepper & sea salt + the traditional pickling spices.  ;D

wait ... is that SPAM?  ;) ;D

Seriously, Corned beef does not photograph very well, does it. I mean - pink slap o' meat looks like pink slab o' meat. Mine turned out great through. I added chopped and sauteed onions and garlic in the beginning with the brisket and the corns and added tthe large onions, carrots, shrooms and taters about 3 hours later and they were all cooked perfectly come 6:ish.

In Ireland you will see a lot of dogs limping.

This is because people come home from work, take one look at dinner and then they kick the dog.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

My wife made this corned beef and cabbage on the 17th.  It was freaking great!  She also made some champ to go with it.  Mmmmm...

I assume its some sort of mashed root vegetable dish from the looks of it?

And a google search seems to agree:

Champ?

Chive infused mashed potatoes.  You could use other green veggies instead of chives though (e.g., green onion, parsley, etc.).  Basically, the chives were infused into some hot milk for a few hours and then incorporated into the mashed potatoes.
