In honor of St. Patrick, Meghan made an amazing meal last weekend. I asked her how she did it and this is what she told me:
1 corned beef brisket, this one came from Fresh Direct. They usually comes with a seasoning packet, but I still add about 2 good palm-fulls of whole black peppercorns, 1 palm-full of cloves, and about 6-8 whole bay leaves.
Add all of this to a large stockpot and cover with water about 2 inches over the roast.
Bring to a boil initially then turn down to lowest temperature and cook all day, I would say at least 7 hours.
About 3 hours in I add an onion, quartered.?The cabbage I usually cook for a few hours and the potatoes don't need more than one or two hours.
