Boiled Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner. So much flavor. Lots of veggies. A meal-in-one supper you will love.
When I told my first husband that I was making a “Boiled Dinner,” he was so excited. He thought I meant Boiled Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner, like his mom made. But in my family a Boiled Dinner was made with Ham. Everything else was the same: potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, and cabbage. My Irish husband was so disappointed when supper came around and it wasn’t Corned Beef. I quickly learned to use corned beef instead of ham (but trust me, ham is terrific, too).
Boiled Dinner, Super Easy
Either way, the meat flavors the vegetables and everything tastes great. It’s an easy way to make an Irish dinner. Plop everything in a big pot, bring it to a boil, turn the temperature down to low, and simmer for about one hour.
Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
