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.

Amy

For those of you who are starting off 2018 with goals related to health & wellness, kudos to you! It’s a perfect time of year to get into a new routine.

Hi Everyone,
Can you believe the summer is almost over?  School is starting in the next couple of weeks and before you know it the weather is going to turn to those cool fall nights.  I love fall season, so I’m looking forward to it.

If you have a garden like I do it’s starting to wind down and the fruit of your labor is ready to eat.  One of my favorite things to do is to make fresh salsa this time of year because there are so many items out of my garden that I can use and there is nothing like fresh salsa. Continue reading

The dock is in along with the boat and I’m ready anytime for summer weather. Continue reading
