St Patrick's Day Casserole
Three pounds of uncooked corned beef will yield enough for this recipe. I sometimes like to simmer mine with 3 cans cheap beer plus enough water to cover for 3 hours. I like to quarter 3 pounds red potatoes and add them to the corned beef during the last half hour. I then remove the meat and potatoes and put the cabbage in the pot to simmer for 5 minutes. I then cut up the corned beef, potatoes, and refrigerate everything overnight, putting together the casserole the next day.
One sheet of puff pastry can replace the phyllo dough, no need for butter or spray. Excellent as leftovers.
Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
