I have grown up eating the traditional corned beef and cabbage that my Mother made and it was always delicious, since she passed away in June I have taken it upon myself to start cooking like she did, I found this recipe and Oh boy! would she be proud, my two boys 14 and 5 never cared for this dish but after making this one I noticed for the first time, there were NO leftovers, my Fiance' Chad and Dad Tony cannot wait until St.Patricks Day, they are wanting it on a regular basis! Highly recommended! Easy to make and most important Delicious!! It's a must try dish! I did not change a thing about it, I wanted to try it just the way the recipe called for and next time I cook it, I will not change one thing about it. I rate a Superb!
