One Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

Corned beef and cabbage is one my families favorite meals.  We actually have this throughout the year, at least once a month.  It takes a while to cook, but it’s so easy.  I usually make this on the nights where I don’t have to be anywhere or it’s my husbands turn to take the kids to practice.  I find around St. Patrick’s Day that corned beef is VERY expensive.  I can only find the larger cuts of meat and I can’t afford $15 for a week night meal.  If you shop early or any other time of year you can find smaller corned beef roasts that are still large enough to feed a family of 5.  I usually spend $7 or $8.

Corned Beef and cabbage isn't just a meal for St. Patrick's Day. We eat this delicious meal about once a month. It's a simple, one pot dish.

One Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage

Ingredients

  • Corned beef roast
  • 2 bottles of beer- The darker the better.
  • 1 head of cabbage

Directions

  1. Add 2 beers to a large pot.
  2. Add  corned beef.  Mine comes with a spice packet and I add that in.  Yours probably will to0.  Fill with water until the roast is submerged.
  3. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 2 hours.
  4. At the 2 hour mark, add your cabbage leaves to the pot.  Cook an additional 30 minutes. (I usually only add in about half a head.)

This is a super simple meal to make, it just takes time for the corned beef to cook.  My house smells like an Irish pub (so good)!  I usually serve with mashed potatoes.  This is FANTASTIC left over for sandwiches (if you have any left).  All my children love this meal and they clean their plate.  I usually make Irish soda bread once a year for St. Patrick’s day to go with it.
