Thursday, January 02, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Here is a family favorite that I know you will enjoy! Take a peek!


1 corned beef brisket
1 large head cabbage (preferably savoy)
8 peppercorns
6 cloves garlic, whole peeled
4-5 parsnips
1-2 turnips
2 bay leaves
1 pound carrots, peeled
6 large potatoes
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
3 whole cloves
1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp black pepper, ground


Wash brisket. Make small X slits in the meat and insert garlic and cloves
Place the meat into a stockpot (at least 8 quarts). Cover the meat with
water. Add bay leaves, peppercorns, Old Bay, 2 carrots and sliced celery.
Bring to a boil, skim off foam and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer 2-3
hours, or until meat is nearly tender.
Meanwhile, prepare vegetables. Quarter the cabbage, peel potatoes,
carrots, turnips and parsnips. Slice vegetables into 2 inch chunks.
During last half hour, add remaining vegetables and cook until tender.
Drain and serve with yellow mustard Enjoy!
