How To Make mimi's cabbage and corned beef

  • 1
    Saute the onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic in the bacon fat for two minutes. Add the cabbage and saute two more minutes. Then add the spinach and green onions, put a lid and let steam/simmer on medium for about 3 minutes.
  • 2
    Remove the lid and break up the corned beef into the pan. Return the lid and steam/simmer while making a pan of cornbread. Add the black pepper and salt to taste. Careful, will not need much salt since the corned beef is salted. Do NOT be tempted to add any liquid the greens make plenty of tasty 'pot liquor' for the recipe!
  • 3
    While the cornbread is cooking, open the lid and toss gently to even the cooking. Serve hot in a bowl with the cornbread slice in the bowl. It will help soak up the 'pot liquor' full of flavor!
