Corned Beef and Cabbage

Corned Beef and Cabbage by car2ngrl

St. Patrick's day is coming up and I also just happened to get a beautiful head of cabbage. So what better thing to do then make Corned Beef and cabbage.

I remember as a kid my mom would throw this together for my dad. So if mom could wing it...so can I.


  • about 3 lb corned beef
  • 1 head of cabbage, cut into small wedges
  • 2 lb new potatoes*
  • 5 carrots, peeled and cut into 3" pieces
  • *I used Trader Joe's Potato Medley.
4 servings


Place corned beef and packaged spices in a large pot. Cover the beef with an inch of water and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer, until the beef is fork tender (about 2-1/2 hours).

After 2 hours, add the vegetables. Cook until tender, about 30 minutes.

Cut against the grain 1/2" slices. Serve with boiled vegetables.

about 3 hours
