First time cooking corned beef & cabbage , and must say, my husband & I were happily surprised with how easy and delicious this was. I was going to use our slow cooker, but after reading lots of reviews, it sounds like this cooking method tends to make it a tad bit mushy. I was worried about having enough room in by large pot for all of it, but fit the 3.75lb brisket, 1/2 of a wedge of cabbage (quartered) 7 red potatoes, 1 large onion (cut into wedges) and abut 20 baby carrots just fine.
One tip, I would have cooked the potatoes/carrots/onions longer than I did before putting in the cabbage because they were just a little underdone - I only put them in for about 5-7 minutes before I threw in the cabbage.
Also, I put in the red potatoes whole...I think I might like to half or quarter them first next time to absorb more of the broth, but not sure how it'll turn out, just an idea.
All in all, I found my staple for future St. Patty Day's to come!
