Irish Corned Beef Cabbage and Carrots

Corned beef is a simple thing to make at home. The bagged ones are good but you can make your own and have plenty of flavor with a few ingredients. You’ll basically brine it but in this case, you can do it fresh, seasoning the boil with peppercorns and bay leaf. Don’t forget the beer. That will help break up the collagen and fibers in the beef as you boil it down. Serve it with the boiled cabbage and carrots, alongside a nice horseradish sauce.

Key Takeaways:
