Spicy and Tender Corned Beef
It will be a mighty 'lucky' group who gets to eat this corned beef on St. Patrick's Day. A spicy and fork-tender treat. My Mother was Irish and she cooked it this way. I'm married to an Irishman, I'm a Lucky Lassie to have him, and he loves this dish!
The garlic amount is very individual. The whole cloves will be stronger than the powdered, but both are strong. Don't use more than 6. The cabbage is cooked separately so it can maintain its subtle taste. Check the tenderness of vegetables and turn heat up if not cooking fast enough.
