Corned Beef and Cabbage healthy Corned Beef & Cabbage

Corned beef and cabbage is a favorite of mine, (as it is for most Americans of Irish decent) and a tradition on St. Patrick’s day. It can also be a healthy meal any time of year.

Store bought corned beef has added nitrites and chemicals, but making a homemade version is a tasty and easy option, as long as you have enough time. Once you have the corned beef, the actual dish takes virtually no time to put together!

    I never join conversations, but this is my first because your recipe gave me the most outstanding, gorgeous meat! its very juicy, its not salty and everyone has complimented me, so i thought i would pass on the compliments. The only thing I did change was that i reserved all the spices from the brine and kept re-using them (i.e. added them when I soaked the meat in fresh water, and then I added them in the pot when I boiled the meat together with a tomato and onion). Its very yummy, thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
