Description

Some people love corned beef and others... well not so much. Nothing says St. Patty's Day like this meal, though! (Make sure to wear green while cooking this.)

Ingredients

1  
corned beef brisket
1  
bay leaf
   
black pepper
6  
potatoes, red
2  
carrots
1  
cabbage, green

Instructions

Rinse brisket to remove the surface brine. Place in a large pot and add water to cover. Add bay leaf and freshly ground black pepper.

Simmer, covered, until a fork can easily slide into the center, about 3 hours.

In the last 30 minutes of cooking, add potatoes and carrots. Allow to cook 10 minutes, then add cabbage. Cook another 15-20 minutes, until cabbage is tender.
 
To serve, slice meat and place on serving platter. Remove vegetables with a slotted spoon and add to serving platter.

Serve with Horseradish Sauce! (The horseradish really gives the dinner a kick, so don't skip it! Happy St. Patrick's Day!)
