Heathly Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe


Healthy Corned Beef and Cabbage

First a little history on St. Patrick’s Day and the namesake associated with it.
First off Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated on March 17, the saints religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. In the Old Sod (Ireland) have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. Although known for banishing the snakes in Ireland, he was truly known for being a missionary and priest on the green isle.

On St. Patrick's Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning then celebrate in the afternoon. Catholic Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage along with beer or ale.

So here are few recipes to celebrate the ‘wearin of the green’.




Corned Beef and Cabbage
Ingredients.
• 3 pounds corned beef brisket with spice packet
• 10 small red potatoes
• 5 carrots, peeled and julienned
• 1 large head cabbage, cut into small wedges
• 2 Bay leaves
Directions
1. Place corned beef in large pot or Dutch oven and cover with water completely. Add the spice packet. Cover pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Simmer approximately 50 minutes per pound or until tender.
2. Add whole potatoes and carrots or any of your favorite other vegetables, and cook until the vegetables are almost tender. Add cabbage and cook for 15 more minutes. Remove meat and let rest 15 minutes to let the juices flow back into the beef.
3. Place vegetables in a bowl and cover. Add as much broth (cooking liquid reserved in the Dutch oven or large pot) as you want. Slice meat across the grain.
4. Serve with mustard, horseradish or your favorite condiment.
