How to make Corned beef and cabbage

Corned beef and cabbage

Corned beef and cabbage is an Irish staple. For generations, people have filled up on the meal, a variation of the classic Irish combo of cabbage and bacon.

It is also popular across the pond especially, not surprisingly, among the Irish American community.

Corned beef is salt-cured beef brisket and has a distinct flavour and texture. The corned beef and cabbage are served with veg such as carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, peas and anything else you fancy.

We have chosen a video from All Recipes, which gives great instructions on how to prepare the meal in a slow cooker.

Then topped with a generous helping of gravy it is a really tasty meal, with plenty of goodness.
