So this is a crazy easy recipe, but it was requested a couple of times on Twitter so I am happy to oblige. I like to share. I don't know why it's not made more than just around St. Patrick's Day here in the US.

Corned Beef And Cabbage Dinner

1 corned beef brisket with spices (they are usually vacuum packed in the meat section of the grocery store)

4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered

1 1/2 lbs baby carrots

1 small head of green cabbage cut in wedges

Remove corned beef from package and place in a large stockpot with the juices from the package. Open and add the spices from the packet. Cover the brisket with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and simmer for two hours.

Add potatoes and carrots. Bring back to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 20 minutes.

Add cabbage and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to about medium and continue to cook for an additional 20 minutes.

The trick to the corned beef with the spice packet is that you should need no additional seasoning until it is served (salt and pepper on the vegetables to taste and can be passed at the table to suit individual taste).
