Corned beef and Cabbage By Freda



Perfect for St. Patricks day this Classic isn't complete without Corned Beef and Cabbage, Taters, & carrots a meal in a pot. You can also add Parsnps and turnips too.
Feel free to add an extra vegie to your meal, or go with the Suggestions in this recipe.

I cook mine in a dutch oven, But you can cook in crock pot it just takes a bit longer.
I have also cooked my meat in the Pressure Cooker, but for very short time, or you'll have mush and ruin your dinner. Then add vegies after the meat has cooked.

Savannah, Ga. my home town has one of the bigggest Irish Festivities for St Patty's day, with all the green beer and Irish foods one can imagine, & fun for all. Its a BIG to DO in Savannah.
