Corned beef and cabbage is a traditional Irish recipe and as much as we love it I had never made corned beef myself because I assumed it would be hard. Turns out it is really easy, it just takes a little patience.
How to Make Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls:
- Place your piece of corned beef (I purchased a 2 lb piece but you only need 1 lb for the recipe so you’ll have extra for another meal!) in a large pot along with the included corned beef seasoning. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and let it cook for about 4 hours, or until the meat is tender enough that it just pulls apart with a fork.
- While the meat cooks cut up the carrots, parsnips and peeled potatoes and put them in another large pot with water. Bring to a boil and cook until they are soft enough to mash. When they are ready drain the water off and add a little butter and salt before mashing everything together.
- When the corned beef has finished cooking drain the water and shred the meat.
- Remove 12 leaves of savoy cabbage and steam them until they just start to get tender.
- To assemble lay a cabbage leaf on a flat surface, place a layer of parsnip mash on the cabbage leaf followed by a layer of corned beef. Roll the leaf up like a delicious little Irish burrito.
- Spread the extra parsnip mash over the bottom of a casserole dish and place cabbage rolls on top of it. Add any remaining mash around the rolls to fill up the dish.
- Bake at 400°F for about 20 minutes to warm everything through and cook the cabbage the rest of the way.\
Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls are so good that they have become our St. Patrick’s Day tradition! You get all of the traditional flavors of an Irish meal in delicious stuffed cabbage. Give it a try this year and let me know what you think!
