    One of my favorites of all time!!! This looks like a good one…is it St Pat’s already????

    • Jon Jefferson

      Me too. Corned beef, with or without cabbage is probably one of my favorites.

  • Jon Jefferson

    I hear this guy is very wise, we should do as he says.

    • I’ve heard that too… ha,ha,ha. It’s a great recipe Jon. 🙂

  • I can’t remember the last time I had corned beef and cabbage. Looks pretty simple to make, too.

    • Jon Jefferson

      Sounds like it is time to add it to the menu.

  • I make corned beef and cabbage every year for St. Patty’s Day. When my children were small, I’d add green food coloring to the milk too! I have never cooked my corned beef with beer before but I bet i would be good.

    • Jon Jefferson

      Cooking with beer, though a long tradition, is coming back into mainstream fashion.

  • Looks like a very hearty recipe. I’m wondering with the amount Jon used, how many servings does this make?

    • Jon Jefferson

      I have to make enough to feed 5.

  • Very traditional and sounds very delicious. Comfort food is perfect on cold days.

    • Jon Jefferson

      I agree. Love stuff like this for winter cooking.

    My husband is always looking for a new corned beef and cabbage recipe. He’s going to love this!

      Now is the time for breaking out all our recipes for good foods like this.

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I’ve never tried corned beef and cabbage. I need to fix that.

    • Jon Jefferson

      Yes you do. It is a beautiful thing.

  • Haley Gray

    Wow- Great recipe for St. Patrick’s Day! I believe Corned Beef and Cabbage is traditional, but I’m not sure it’s actually Irish. I remember it originated here in the USA.

    • Jon Jefferson

      That works out because the celebration of St. Patricks day as we know it in the US is very much a US tradition.

  • Jeanne Tomlin

    Since the Irish don’t eat corned beef and cabbage, yes, it can get much, much more Irish than that. It is an American dish.

    There are many delicious dishes that are actually Irish. Dublin coddle, lamb stew, colcannon, and soda bread and of course Ireland is known for its fantastic sea food. The recipe looks good enough but in no way is it Irish.

    • Jon Jefferson

      Very much Irish in our US tradition of celebrating St. Patricks day.

      • Jeanne Tomlin

        It is very much a US tradition and there is nothing wrong with that. What it isn’t is an Irish one. 🙂

        • Jon Jefferson

          This is where you miss a bit of food history. Traditions are that for a reason. Comfort foods tend to come from the foods of the poor. This tradition came from the Irishimmigrants who could not find their more traditional foods.

          In this they created a new tradition that has carried on. The dish started in the US but it was the Irish who gave it to us.

          • Jeanne Tomlin

            No, I am not missing the food history. Corned beef and cabbage was eaten by poor immigrants in the US. Therefore it is a US custom. The Irish immigrants didn’t ‘give it to us’ since they didn’t bring it with them. They found it here and adopted it because at the time it was inexpensive.

            If someone wants to commemorate Irish immigrants in the US, then eating corned beef and cabbage is a very reasonable thing to do. That immigrants who found it here started eating it didn’t make it Irish however and people who want to eat an IRISH dish, should be aware that this isn’t.

          • Thanks for sharing. I love food (more then I should… LOL), so regardless of it’s heritage and it’s a good recipe, I’m all over it. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

      I like to dabble.
