There use to be a time in my life when St. Patty’s Day meant wearing something green, going to the local pub and having a few too many green beers. These days, there is no green beer and my favorite part of St. Patty’s Day is the boiled dinner. My how life changes!
This is the second year I have made the perfect recipe. I love the colors that go into this dinner. The carrots, cabbage and red potatoes just look so fresh and appetizing.
The spices from the Corned Beef kit make the house smell amazing.
Many people don’t like cabbage. I think this recipe “gets” it by adding the cabbage only 10 mins before the meal is done. This helps it not to break down and get “stinky”. The cabbage remains somewhat crisp and keeps its sweet taste.
Yummy, another delicious St. Patty’s Day! Cheers!
