Deals on packaged Corned Beef Brisket after St.Pat's.
I use extra pickling spices to ramp up the flavor.
Corned Beef and Cabbage (Click to show)
One package of corned beef brisket.
One small head of green or savoy cabbage
12 cups water
1/4 cup Pickling spices
salt for vegetables
Remove from package and place brisket into a pot and cover with the water.
Add any pickling spices that come with the brisket plus the extra 1/4 cup
Bring to a simmer and turn heat down until just bubbling
Cook for 2.5-3 hours,until a fork will easily run through.(app.160F internal)
Remove brisket to rest
Strain brisket water
Add quarters of cabbage(leave core on so it won't fall apart)to the pot
Add potatoes and carrots
Pour strained brisket water over vegetables,add salt and simmer until tender (app.40 mins)
Slice brisket opposite the meat grain,serve with whole grain mustard.
