Slow-Cooker Cabbage, Potatoes and Bacon

Getting reviews...
You don't have to be Irish to enjoy cabbage with potatoes, and while this is a great dish for St. Patrick's Day, you can also enjoy it year-round. One of the best ways to appreciate cabbage and potatoes is straight from the slow cooker, after they've had a long simmer with bacon and Irish beer, of course. During the cooking process, the smoky, salty and umami bacon flavors melt into the cabbage and potatoes, and everything comes out perfectly cooked.
