Tomorrow we're all Irish! Want to celebrate St. Paddy's Day in grand style? Go to the supermarket. Buy a corned beef brisket (leaner is better), a head of cabbage, some carrots and potatoes. The brisket will be in a package of juices and spices. Open the package & dump the whole thing into the biggest pan you can find. Sometimes the spices are in a little plastic packet, so if yours are, release the spices from the packet to the top of your meat. Cover with water and cook one hour per pound - just barely bubbling - known as simmer. An hour before the meat is done, turn up heat and add potatoes and carrots - peeled and cut into chunks. Cut the cabbage in 6-8 sections (cut from stem to stern, so to speak) and put on top of it all. (See why you need a big pan?) After it starts to simmer, turn heat back down for the last hour. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! Now that's good eatin' too! This is kind of like the 'high class' Irish food... as with all poor people's foods, the norm is the veggies without the beef! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
