Delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner made easy!
Have you ever made your own corned beef prepared in the traditional way? If so, you know that it takes DAYS, since you need to brine it, or soak it in a solution with salt and spices, prior to cooking it.
But with this shortcut recipe, you can have the great taste of corned beef in a matter of hours instead of days. And as my family can attest, the result is delicious!
This recipe will provide an entire dinner for your family, with cabbage, carrots, and onions cooked right alongside the corned beef. Just sear the meat, rub it with spices, then toss it in a roasting pan with the veggies, garlic, and a few bay leaves.
Pour in some beef stock, cover, and braise for a couple of hours, and voila! Serve Irish soda bread or another side dish for a hearty meal to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or even just to make any family #SundaySupper that much more special!
