Corned Beef and Cabbage I
March 20, 2005

This was THE BEST corned beef and cabbage that I have ever made. I never had used a recipe before, let alone added carrots. Anyhow, I used a 4 lb. brisket that I trimmed of most visible fat without sacrificing the integrity of the meat. Also rinsed the meat well (couldn't bear to use that bloody junk that was packaged with it) before putting it into an 11 qt. stockpot with the spices that were packaged with it. Added 1 can Miller Lite beer, water to cover, 3 large cloves of minced garlic, and about 12 whole black peppers. About 1 hour before the beef was supposed to be done, I added the potatoes, carrots, and 2 small turnips, chopped. Forty minutes later I added the green cabbage wedges and 1 large onion, cut into wedges. Twenty minutes later all was done and it was DELICIOUS. [P.S. I served this with a horseradish sauce--mix together 3/4 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup white prepared horseradish (or to taste), 1 Tbs. dried chives, and the juice from 1/2 lemon. This is very good with the corned beef.]
