    Corned Beef and Cabbage My way.

    I know St. Patrick’s is 6 months away, but I have to make this more than once a year.

    First simmer the corned beef brisket covered in water with spice from the packet for 1 ½ to 2 hours, or until 160 degrees internally.

    Meanwhile chop one onion and sauté it with 4 slices of bacon cut into 1†pieces. Do not drain the fat.

    [file]144097[/file]

    Quarter a head of cabbage, remove the core, then cross-slice the quarters into 1†ribbons.

    [file]144080[/file]

    Once the brisket is done pull it out of the stock pot and set aside to cool for 15 min.
    Reserve 1 cup of the water from the brisket and set aside.

    [file]144088[/file]

    While the corned beef cools
    Drain stockpot and add the bacon (with drippings) and onions to the pot and mix in the cabbage. Begin to wilt the cabbage over med - med/high heat, adding ½ cup of reserved corned beef cooking liquid, stirring frequently (add more liquid if needed) Season the cabbage with black pepper and salt, but be careful because the bacon and corned beef are already salty.

    Thinly slice the corned beef across the grain

    Once the cabbage is done stir in sliced corn beef, to make a one pot meal.

    Or remove and plate the cabbage and top with slices of Corned beef.

    We have corned beef and cabbage for St Patricks day and on New Years' Day. And maybe one other time during the year for the heck of it.

    I like mine with smashed red potatoes.

    Fantastic.

    I was going to make one about a month ago, defrosted it, opened the bag, about threw up, and threw it in the trash.

    I bought this it spring, kept it in the ice box for about a month, and froze it before the "sell by" date. Same thing happened to a vacum sealed pork loin I bought at the time.

    Lesson learned, freeze any meat within a day or two no matter how it's packaged. :pop:
