This one is less than a block long. Every pub and tavern becomes an Irish pub and a fantastic many will serve the traditional Irish feast of Corned Beef and Cabbage.

Now on to the vital matter of a traditional Irish Feast, Corned Beef and Cabbage. This dish is quick becoming an American tradition second only to the Thanksgiving Turkey. If you reckon of St. Patrick’s Day you automatically reckon of Corned Beef and Cabbage with a Green Beer chaser. There are many “Traditional Recipes” for this feast. I am putting my personal favorite here:

Makes six servings

1 four pound beef brisket
1 Tablespoon salt
1 bouquet garni (1 bay leaf, one quarter tsp. thyme, four whole peppercorns, four sprigs fresh parsley, several celery leave, three whole cloves, one quarter tsp. dry tarragon, tied together into a cheesecloth bag)
3 carrots quartered lengthwise
2 parsnips or turnips peeled and coarsely chopped
2 medium red onions cut into wedges
10 to 12 small new potatoes (about 3 pounds)
1 small cabbage cut into 6 to 8 wedges
approximately 2 quarts of water

Place meat into a large Stock Pot. Add water to cover, salt, bouquet garni, and parsnips and onion. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer about three hours until meat is nearly tender. Skim the stout off of the top frequently.
Add the carrots, potatoes, and cabbage. Simmer until vegetables are tender, about forty five minutes.
Remove the bouquet garni. Remove meat from the cookwareforhomecooking.com/cookware_stainless_steel.html Stock Pot and let rest for five or ten minutes then slice across the grain. Serve on a platter with the large pieces of vegetable and yellow mustard or a horseradish sauce on the side.
