Traditional Corned Beef And Cabbage Dinner
3 pound corned beef brisket with spice packet
1 large head cabbage, cut into small wedges
10 small red potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed well
5 carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch pieces
Place corned beef in large pot and cover with water. Add the included spice packet, then cover pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer approximately 2 hours or until tender. Add whole potatoes and carrots and cook until the vegetables are almost tender. Add cabbage and cook for 15 more minutes. Remove meat and let rest 15 minutes. Place vegetables in a bowl and cover. Add as much broth (or cooking liquid reserved in the pot) as you want. Slice meat across the grain and serve.
