I made my first ever Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner. Aren't you proud of me?
I cheated a little. I bought the meat pre-brined. It was really good, though. My plan was to attempt soda bread to go with it. But then we took on a bathroom project this weekend, so it was sliced whole wheat sandwich bread with butter instead.
There's a ton leftover, so I think I'll cut everything up into bite-sized pieces, add some egg noodles, and call it soup tomorrow night. Gotta love leftovers.
I put carrots, onions, cabbage, and red potatoes in with the meat during the last half hour of cooking.
Three and a half hours and a dollop of horseradish later, here's dinner on my plate:
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
