This was my first time making corned beef and cabbage, and it came out great! I personally like my "broth" to have a bit more flavor to it, so I added a few things to the water. I added 1/2 bottle of beer (had Harpoon UFO Heifenweizen on hand, but just about any will work), about 10 peppercorns, 1 tsp dried rosemary, 5 bay leaves, 1/2 sliced white onion, 2 tsp minced garlic, and a handful of cloves. With about 30 minutes left, I added the cabbage wedges and carrots. I personally like potatoes to have more flavor, so I cooked them separately and added a few things. I took 1-1/2 pounds of baby red potatoes, sliced them in half and cooked them in boiling water for about 12 minutes. Then I mixed in 1/3 stick of butter, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp dried parsley flakes, and salt and pepper to taste (I melted the butter and pre-mixed the ingredients, then added it all to the potatoes). I then served potatoes with the beef, cabbage, and carrots. I also served it with a side of french bread. This really was incredible... thanks for such an easy recipe!
