A few years ago, my husband Tom found this recipe in a Marjorie Standish cookbook that I had purchased. Years ago, Marjorie Standish used to write a cooking column for the Portland Press Herald here in Maine. Tom did change the recipe and I am posting his version. This could not be easier, but it does take about four hours from start to finish. This is the kind of recipe that you want on a cold day, that's why we made this yesterday. It's cold here right now and we had a craving for all of those wonderful root vegetables.

How to Make Holly's New England Boiled Dinner

Step-by-Step

  1. Any other root vegetables may be added, but if you add beets, cook them separately.
  2. Cover beef with water in a large pot. Bring this to a boil, and then simmer 1 hour per pound
  3. One hour before the beef is done, add the vegetables, and that's it!!
  4. When done serve with salt, pepper and butter on the vegetables. It's delicious. The turnip is incredible, and the next night you can make hash in a cast iron skillet.
