i've never done CB and Cabbage...my question is can i just use a brisket or does it have to be "corned", and if so what does "corned" mean? cured?
This is a recipe I have used. It is my twist on Alton Browns recipe. It is pretty good stuff!...JJ
* Note: Brisket should be Cured, but not cooked.
Place the corned beef, spices, herbs and salt into a large 8 quart pot along with 3 quarts of water. Cover and set over high heat. Bring to a boil, decrease the heat to low and cook, at a low simmer for 2 1/2 hours.
After 2 1/2 hours add the carrots, onions, celery and cabbage. Return to a simmer and cook uncovered for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, add the potatoes and cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until the cabbage and potatoes are tender. Remove the bay leaves and serve immediately with Plenty of Butter for the Vegetables. ( Hey this is once a Year! )
Drain any leftovers well, cut into chunks and pan fry in bacon grease or butter until crisp for an awesome hash.
