Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine the cabbage, potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add carrots and onion. Cover and simmer 20-25 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender; drain.

Just in time for St Paddies day dinner, those who are Irish and cook a big dinner for every one this is the one to cook.
It is so good, and will go a long way too.

Sounds like a great recipe. I am not too big on corn beef,even though I am Irish. I love making Irish Soda Bread though :)

I am not a big fan of corn beef either but it sure does look good.
Have a great weekend.

That sounds so good! Beloved Husband just won't eat cabbage, so I never get this at home. I love corned beef and the cabbage, too. As for soda bread -- we both like that, so I guess it's a fair trade off. The recipe is a keeper for when he goes fishing and I can get the girls to come over!

I haven't done corned beef for many years, Barb, but as you say sounds like a great St Paddys Day meal. We are doing a St Patricks Day concert.
Love and Blessings,
Jan

My husband loves corned beef and cabbage--and it is one of the few things he will cook himself--every Saint Patricks day when it goes on sale we stock up for the whole year. :)
