Corned Beef & Cabbage

Corned Beef & Cabbage

Ingredients
  • 2 whole yellow onions, peeled
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 3 1/2 lbs corned beef, preferably bottom round
  • 3 whole carrots, peeled and cut into thirds
  • 2 bay leaf(s)
  • 8 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 medium whole head green cabbage
  • 5 whole russet potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash black pepper
  • hot-sweet mustard, to taste (optional)
Instructions
  1. Stud onions with cloves. Rinse corned beef in cold water to remove brine. Put beef in a large pot and add onions, carrots, bay leaves, peppercorns, and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 2 hours, skimming occasionally.
  2. Wash cabbage, remove core and any torn leaves, then cut into 6 wedges. Add cabbage and potatoes to beef, then cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. Transfer beef to a cutting board and cover with a plate weighted with heavy cans (weighting makes meat easier to slice).
  4. Transfer onions, carrots, cabbage, and potatoes to a platter. Remove cloves from onions. Strain cooking liquid, discarding bay leaves and peppercorns. Return liquid to pot and cook over high heat until reduced by one-third, 20 – 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  5. Return vegetables to stock and heat through for about 5 minutes. Remove plate and cans from meat and cut across the grain, in 1/4 inch-thick slices. Arrange beef and vegetables on warmed platter. Moisten with stock. Serve with additional stock and hot mustard if you like.
