Corned Beef and Cabbage with no seasoning packet
Most of my questions about the seasonings said to use pickling spice?
I make my own pickling spice and it has corriander, ginger, cloves, and cardomom in it, fine for pickles but for our tastes, not for corned beef and cabbage.
I came up with this combo, and it turned out really good.
- 3 to 4 lb
- corned beef
- 2 large
- onions, quartered
- 6 to 8 medium
- 1 small
- cabbage, quartered, leave core in
- 14.9 oz
- guinnes beer
- water to almost cover the beef
- 1 tsp
- 1/2 tsp
- mustard seeds
- 2 Tbsp
- 2 medium
- bay leaves
- 1 tsp
- minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp
- crushed red pepper
- salt and pepper to taste, use your judgement on this one
- potatoes if desired, using whole baby potatoes works well here.
Reserve the potatoes and carrots for later.
