But, you guyyyys! Hiii! Or, as the Irish would say, Dia Duit! How’s she cuttin’?! C’mere till a tell ya, tell me this n tell me na more! ⬅ A few things that my Irish uncle says. 🍀🍀🍀 And, to be quite frank, I can hardly understand him! 🙈 shhhh! I just nod and smile. 😳
He feels the same way when we speak Macedonian, so it’s all good. No harm done!
There’s a very specific sort of cooking strategy that runs through my brain every time I stare into my refrigerator and try to figure out what to make, especially around a Holiday. Most times I’ll find 6 carrots, 4 potatoes, some celery, broccoli, parsley, half of a cabbage, etc…
P.S. I have a 4 year old that is straight up obsessed with vinegar and oil coleslaw, thus we always have cabbage on hand. Or half of one.
So as my brain is trying to process all of this, I start to pray that the corned beef brisket is still in the freezer, and that I have enough time to call my Irish relative to get the most authentic Irish recipe for said corned beef. Finally, I pray that maybe, just maybe I can produce a successful Corned Beef and Cabbage and share it with my internets friends.
And here I am!
I’mma need to backtrack for a sec about that authentic deal. My relative says, “every Irish will tell you that their recipe is the most authentic; don’t believe ’em, because they’re all bloody “authentic.” So there you go… that’s my disclaimer, and it’s not in fine print.
Moving right along, I am going to need you to get a corned beef brisket (hopefully one that comes with its own peppercorns!), I will also ask you to grab the taters, the carrots, onions, and cabbage.
Please grab a large pot, place brisket in there, pour some broth or water over it (a bottle of Guinness, too, if you want!) and let it go for some time. You will then add in the rest of the ingredients and wait for the awesome flavors to come together.
When it’s all set and done, call over several people to help you grub on all this Corned Beef and Cabbage deliciousness!
