not only have I HAD boiled dinner, I've MADE boiled dinner!

So I decided that I wanted to try "boiled dinner", thinking that I'd never tried it before.

Until I did a search for the recipe.  And I discovered that not only have I HAD boiled dinner before, I've MADE boiled dinner before!

It's corned beef and cabbage.  And I could have sworn I've posted the recipe on this blog before, but I can't find it.

I just always thought it was corned beef and cabbage.  I figured boiled dinner was something different.

You can use a camp oven, crock pot, or a cast iron pot in the oven or on the stove.

Take corned beef brisket, put it in the pot with the seasoning packet it comes with, and add beef broth.  I also add chopped onions and minced garlic.

Simmer until done.

Remove the corned beef, but leave the liquid in the pot.  

Add your cabbage, RED potatoes, and carrots.  Add some black pepper.

The recipe doesn't call for onion powder and garlic powder, but I add some anyway.

Simmer in the liquid until done.

Then add the corned beef back in with the vegetables.

Serve with mustard and malt vinegar.

Why not cook them all together?

Well, first of all, it wouldn't all fit in the pot at once.

Second of all, it historically was not considered "proper" to cook the veggies and the meat in the same pot.

To save time, you can use two separate pots; Just have some extra beef broth to use in the veggie pot.
