Traditional Corned Beef & Cabbage

Everybody's Irish for a day, when eating Nations Best® First Cut Corned Beef and cabbage. Try serving this dish with a variety of mustards, a wedge of Irish cheddar and a loaf of rustic bread, alongside on the table.


  • 1 Nations Best® First Cut Corned Beef (3 lb, raw)
  • 6 red-skinned potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 6 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 6 parsnips, peeled
  • 6 onions, peeled
  • 1 medium-size turnip, peeled and quartered
  • 1 green cabbage (3 lb), cut into wedges


  1. Place the corned beef in a large heavy pot or Dutch oven. Cover with cold water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, covered, for 2 hours.
  2. Add the vegetables and simmer, covered, until the meat is fork tender and the vegetables are cooked through, about 1 hour more.
