Last year I was looking for a St. Patrick's Day recipe that was a little different from my normal corned beef and cabbage. I found a few that looked interesting, but I decided to make this and liked it enough to include it again this year. You get your cabbage, but in a different way. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, hope you do as well.

I got the recipe from food.com. It said the recipe came from a Jane Brody cookbook.
