This is an exciting Liz's Kitchen! I LOVE St. Patrick's Day and I LOVE Corned Beef and Cabbage! This was a meal I would always ask my aunt to make when I came home from college...at anytime in the year. When I moved to Buffalo I took on holiday as my own to host! It's so much fun and I'm so excited to show you how easy it is to make this meal! When I made it the first year I was so intimidated that somehow I would screw it up but it's as easy as putting in and letting it go! So get ready because I'm gonna share parts of my aunt's recipe!

Last week Mark Strub, President of Ford Brothers Wholesale Meats, Inc made the the trip from West Valley to hand deliver some of their famous Paddy's Corned Beef to me and Clay. It was a lot of meat and it all looked delicious! Mark knows of my Liz's Kitchen and thought this would be a great for one of the recipes and boy was he right!

This Liz's Kitchen is going to be a bit different because I'm going to cook it overnight and finish it durning the show, so look for updates as the meal finishes and people try it!

Corned Beef and Cabbage (Featuring Paddy's Corned Beef)

3 carrots, cut in 1 inch pieces
3-4 pound corned beef brisket
2-3 medium onions, quartered
3/4 to 1 cup water
1/2 small head cabbage, cut in wedges

I use the crock pot.  You also can slow cook on top of the stove in one big pot.  It needs to cook at least 3 hours or more that way.  Until it is tender. I talked to Mark and he said he cooks his in a crock pot too but the choice is yours!

Put all ingredients except cabbage wedges in crock pot in order listed.  Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours (high 5-6 hours).

Add cabbage wedges to liquid, pushing down to moisten. Turn to high and cook an additional 2-3 hours.

 

Alternate for Cabbage to prepare more cabbage than crock pot will hold with large brisket, cook it separately in skillet.  Remove 1 cup broth from crockpot during last hour of cooking. Pour over cabbage wedges in skillet.  Cover and cook slow for 20 - 30 minutes. What I do is, I take liquid out of the crockpot and add it to the water to cook potatoes.  I also do the cabbage in the pan instead of in the crockpot.

There are no finally shots of the corned beef and cabbage because it's still cooking in the studio! Results coming soon!
