irish corned beef and cabbage recipe

In my family, corned beef and cabbage is a favorite dish to serve for St. Patrick’s Day. I grew up in central PA where sometimes we do things a little different. We have always made our corned beef and cabbage with canned corned beef. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s that I even knew that corned beef could be bought in the fresh meat department at the grocery store and just means that the cut of beef was cured with salt crystals called corns. Sad isn’t it? I still have never made this dish any other way. I know it may sound a little strange but it makes a delicious hearty stew. My family loves this Irish Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe.
