Get the corned beef with the spice packet included. Mama likes this, or the Harris Ranch version.
Add your hunk o' meat to a pot o' water with the spices.
Chop your onion and throw it in there too. Bring everything to a boil. Then, turn the heat down, cover, and simmer for two hours.
After two hours, things should be smelling pretty good! Chop up your potatoes and carrots and throw them in there.
After a half hour, cut your cabbage into quarters and lay it on top of everything. Cover, and set a timer for 15 minutes.
Fish out the veggies with a slotted spoon and set aside.
Carve the meat across the grain for the tenderest cut.
Serve with lots and lots of fresh horseradish. This is not enough. I need more. Enjoy! Happy St Paddy's Day!
