Corned Beef - 1 pot meal


This is one of the easiest meals you'll ever make and it's so good.  It is something that needs to be done when you have some time but there is actually very little work and preparation involved.

You will need:

1 Corned Beef Brisket
potatoes
cabbage

Cook your corned beef according to the package directions which normally is done by covering it with water and boiling for about 45 minutes per pound.  When the beef is done, remove it form the pan.  Add potatoes and cabbage and cook until tender.  Replace meat to heat.  Add some corn bread muffins or rolls and dinner is done.

Comments:  This meal is so easy yet so tasty.  If you cut the potatoes into chunks you can add them along with the cabbage.  If you want your cabbage with a little more texture, add it about halfway through the cooking of the potatoes.  DO NOT ADD SALT.  Due to the salt content of the beef, you will not need to add salt to the potatoes nor the cabbage.  Also, you can add carrots and onions to this dish to add more flavor and color.  Plus, the leftover beef makes a great Ruben sandwich.  This is one meat that a little bit goes a long way due to its flavor so you can create a couple meals out of this one cooking.  I almost forgot, you can finely chop the leftover meat and potatoes and make Corned Beef Hash which is delicious for breakfast with an egg on top.
