Irish Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner

Rose Mary Mogan


This meal is one that my Father in Law really loved, and it is definately a family favorite in our household. I make it quite often, especially when I can find the Corned Beef Flats at the right price. This recipe is also in my self Published cookbook of 795 recipes. I usually make Irish Soda bread when I make this and the Watergate cake for dessert, which I will add the recipe soon. I did add the watergate cake recipe, I am sure you will love it.
