While many Americans associate corned beef and cabbage with Ireland, this popular St Patrick’s Day dish has roots in America. it might not be your traditional Irish dish. But regardless of where it came from ! This is a great recipe on a cold day, or just to satisfy you craving for comfort food. ☺ This Is one of my brothers favorite meals since you get pretty much everything all in one pot — your greens , your protein and your carbs 🙂 I always make it a point to cook it for him on my summer trips to San Fransisco. So Get ready for some mouth watering tender corned beef with corned beef flavored potatoes, cabbage, and carrots. YUMMY !!! The secret to this dish- is slow cooking the meat again until
You have a pot full of delicious broth and tender beef. Again it’s so easy ! Just takes time. You can also substitute the cabbage with other vegetables , like spinach, or add bell peppers ! Have fun with it 😉 regardless the flavors will always come out fantastic

You will need :

1 lb -corned beef brisket
2- large onions
2-3 large potatoes
Baby carrots / sliced carrots
1- cabbage
2 bay leaves
2 cloves of garlic
( beef broth cubes or chicken broth cubes ) – optional
Salt / pepper to taste.

Directions:

– Rinse the beef brisket under cold water, and place in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the roast by 6 inches. Add the onions, garlic and bay leaves place them in the pot with the roast. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 30 minutes at a rolling boil. Reduce heat to medium-low so that the water is at a gentle boil, cover, and cook for 3 1/2 hours or until the beef is tender. Just keep Checking 3-4 hours is usually how long it takes.

-Remove the lid from the brisket. Add carrots to the pot, and the potatoes place the lid back on, and cook for another 20 minutes, until potatoes are tender. The potatoes should be immersed in the water by now, then add the cabbage/ vegetables and cook for another 10 mins –

-Remove the vegetables from the pot, and place in a separate serving bowl. Keep the corned beef in the pot until ready to slice and serve because it dries out quickly. Or you may serve it all together with the soup ! Whatever floats your boat – you will love this dish regardless ❤

Besitos 💋
