CORNED BEEF & CABBAGE!

This easy & wonderful dish is not just for St. Patrick's Day, this is GREAT any time! Yes, it takes some time but it is still very easy!

1, 3 to 4 LB. Corned Beef ( this comes in a sealed packet with the beef already brined)
1 Medium size head of Cabbage Cored & cut into small sized wedges
6 Large Carrots peeled & cut into 2 or 3 inch lengths or 1 bag of baby carrots
1 Onion peeled & Chopped
8 to 10 Medium Potatoes Peeled
1 TBS Chopped Parsley
WATER
Place Corned Beef in a large pot or cook in a large electric roasting pan ( I used the electric roaster).
Cover with enough water that beef is completely covered. Place the spices that come with the beef in the pot too! Now bring to a boil & cover & let boil at a simmer for 2 hours! Now place the onion, carrots & potatoes in the pot & add more water if needed so everything is covered. Cook for 20 minutes. Now add the cabbage & add water if needed. Cover the pot & cook until cabbage is completely cooked soft.  Plate up on a serving platter like seen above. Serve with LOTS OF BUTTER, salt & pepper available so people can season as they wish. Serve this with a good hot bread , like Irish Soda Bread or Garlic Bread, we liked the garlic bread served with this! A good applesauce on the side & you have a GREAT SUPPER!  I served a bowl of the hot broth from the pot along side the dish for anybody that wanted to spoon it over their potatoes & cabbage! I sliced the beef into this slices cutting against the grain of the beef! This was a tender beef with great flavor & the veggies were wonderful! ENJOY !
