Saint Patrick’s Day – Corned Beef and Cabbage
Corned Beef, cabbage, and boiled potatoes, make a perfect meal for St. Patrick’s Day.
Actually that is probably the only time I prepare corned beef for a family meal, because it just tastes so much better that day.
If you like corned beef, how often to you include it on your family menu?
I purchase the ready treated corned beef from my local grocer, and prepare it per suggested instructions, thus boil it until done.
Once the meat is fully cooked, I cut up green cabbage head into 8 sections, right through the core of the cabbage, so the sections do not fall apart during cooking.
I boil the cabbage sections for at least 15 minutes, in the corned beef broth.
Remove the cooked cabbage and set aside.
I peel potatoes, quarter each, and boil for 20 minutes in the corned beef broth, as well.
Before serving, I saute Italian flavored bread crumbs in butter, and sprinkle them over the cabbage.
Potatoes are also served with sauteed onions in butter, and flavored with salt and pepper.
