    Oh my! That’s exactly how this Italian chick does St. Pat’s Day! Boiled cabbage is to die for!!! Add some rutabagas to make it perfect.

    And the corn beef – heaven on earth. God bless St. Patrick (and you, too!)

  2. Evy Rosebrook says:

    Love me a little C.B. but hubs is allergic to all beef. Really limits our choices. Maybe I could buy a tiny little brisket and make one:) Don’t know if anyone else does, but I love sour cream on my cabbage.
    Me too, I’m Irish too, for real, not just on St. Paddy’s day:)

    An early Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to you Angel!

    All looks great but have to tell you that I being Irish do not and will not eat or drink anything green unless it was made so by God, otherwise it just doesn’t sit well with me? I even avoid green M&M’s,,lol.

  5. Comedy Plus says:

    Oh this sounds really good. One of our favorite meals is corned beef and cabbage. I’ve not done the glaze though. Sounds divine.

    Have a terrific day and a very happy St. Patrick’s day. :)

    That brisket looks real good, pass on the spinach laden milkshake though. Not a fan of spinach.

  12. Woodsterman says:

    Sugar on corned beef? Woman! Blasphemy! My kin (OK, we’re Norwegian and English, but still love New England Boiled Dinner, as the mo-in law would call it) would tar and feather me if I went with your glaze.

    Just corned beef, straight up, with cabbage, onions, potatos and carrots. Period.

    You might as use some crumbled Cap’n Crunch as a rub on the brisket, if you ask dumb ol’ Fredd’s kin.

  17. RandyG says:

    Damn that corned beef looks tasty!

    Angel,
    Sorry for my lack of comments here lately. Work has been so all-consuming.

    Anyway, I LOVE St. Paddy’s. So much fun to be had. Besides, green is “my” color.

    Have a wonderful weekend, Angel.
