Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Have a little luck of the Irish!


Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!  I hope you have all had a lucky day!

Here's what I've done so far:
 Went to Kroger and purchased my Corned Beef Brisket...
Rinsed it off with cold water, including the spice packet...
 Placed it in my pot and added cold water, approximately 2" or so, don't drown it!  Open the spice packet and sprinkle in the Shamrock love!!
 Add about 1/2 teaspoon of Kosher Salt...
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground fresh black pepper...
Put a lid on it, sorta cocked and turn heat to about medium.  Once it comes to a slight boil, turn the stove eye as low as it will go.  Secure the lid tightly and simmer it low and slow all day. 

I'll come back to this later...

So, in the meantime...
your choice.... enjoy and I'll be back!!

Okay, I'm back now.  My corned beef has slowly simmered almost all day.
Turn up the heat to medium and throw in  cubed potatoes.  I prefer to use red potatoes, leave the peeling on, just wash them really well.  If they are large, quarter them, small ones throw in whole or halfed.  Yesterday, I had some idahao's that needed to be used, so I just peeled and large diced them.  (Use as many potatoes as you need depending on the number of people you are serving).  I used three medium potatoes.  Add a little kosher salt and ground black pepper.
Put the lid on and cook until the potatoes begin to get fork tender.  Then add your chopped cabbage.
Add kosher or sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste...
Put the lid back on and simmer until the cabbage is tender and delicious.
Slice the corned beef and serve...  Yum.  It is really good.  I always have corn on the cob with mine, but it's a one pot meal in itself and nothing else is really necessary.

Love, hugs and Happy St. Patty's Day!!
