Jennifer’s Easy Corned Beef & Cabbage Recipe
(Newbie Foodie, Western Market, 3/11/2011)
Jennifer is one of the friendly clerks in the Meat Department at Western Market. Ask her anytime about how to cook the meats and fish you purchase! This week Jennifer and her family enjoyed a delicious traditional Irish feast – first of Corned Beef with Cabbage, then Reuben sandwiches with the leftovers. Jennifer’s daughter Liz really enjoyed the hearty meal, and her husband Ed had fun cooking and taking the pictures.
Corned Beef and Cabbage Ingredients:
Package corned beef brisket
One onion chopped
4-5 carrots cut to preferred size
4-5 celery stalks cut to preferred size
3-4 potatoes cut to size
½ head cabbage, cut into quarters or eighths
Garlic to taste
Pickling spices – in this case, DeYoung’s Fore Seasons
“Our recipe is to trim the fat a bit and put it in enough water to cover with pickling spice, onions, carrots, celery and garlic. Bring to a boil and simmer for a few hours until the beef is tender. Then add cabbage and potatoes and cook til those are done.”
Corned Beef, sliced
Sliced Swiss Cheese
Thousand Island Dressing
Cook Sauerkraut to taste, making sure it is well drained. Toast the Rye Bread. Add reheated Corned Beef, Swiss Cheese, a layer of Sauerkraut, and Thousand Island Dressing. To make everything melt together, grill it in a pan with some butter.
