The only problem I can see is knowing when to put in the cabbage.

And a pox on ye all if ye don't like the cabbage!

Brisket or Round ? I always buy the round cut, I find it so much better, so tender cuts with a fork.
I do mind on top of the stove with lil water, onion, carrot, bay leaf pepper
and if Im doing boiled dinner throw in some potatos and cabbage.
I mostly just cook the corn beef as I love it as sandwhiches.
Sammmys-> of course rubens and then just plain on rye bread with a spicy mustard
corn beef hash - mmm and if I don't do a boiled dinner, I will fry cabbage, onions carrots and add the beef. good also.
Happy St pat's day.

I don't like mushy veg, this has come from many years of trying to avoid it. My cabbage never sees the corned beef until it's on the plate, I want it to be green and just barely soft.

You should see the dance I do while using the pressure cooker for corned beef and cabbage. I'm feeling lazy this year.

I bought 2 of them "red ones". Freirich corned beef thick point cut and the same one flat cut.

The recipe I was going to follow, says to put in the spice packet, but mine didn't come with any spice packets? Is there something else I can put in in addition to the spice packet?

You can toss in a spoonful of pickling spices but it's not necessary.

I ended up cooking all the potatoes, carrots, and 1 of the corned beef's in the crock pot. I also cooked another corned beef on the stove approx 3 hours before serving and threw the cabbage in toward the end. Made for a good meal.

I have a urge to take the potatoes, carrots, and left over broth and make some soup with it. Looked up some basic recipes and looks like I can put together something pretty simple. I also bought ALL the ingredients to make reuben sandwiches.

My mother used to mash my potatoes and carrots along with the turnip all together. She would put a big pat of butter and some on the pot liquor with them. Salt and Pepper. For some strange reason when I do like she did, it just doesn't taste the same. But my kids growing up would ask me to do it for them. Now they have the same complaint. When they do it for their kids, it just doesn't taste the same. This is just one of those things that will get passed down from generation to generation.

What will you use the gravy for? Do you save gravy after making it? Just curious. Many times, I've had left over gravy and one time I froze it, but to tell you the truth - I think it still might be in the freezer. LOL
