We are not Irish, Pete can claim a little, but our combined heritage is definitely German. Does that keep us from celebrating St. Patrick's Day - no way...we are good Catholics after all!
The way I prepare Corned Beef and Cabbage for my large family is by using my roaster as if it was a crock pot.
Corned Beef and Cabbage:
2 large marinated corned beef cuts from Sams
2 large green cabbages
10 yukon gold potatoes cut in half length wise
2 large yellow onions chopped up in chunks
2 long neck beers - preferably a stout beer and of course Guiness if you have it.
I place all in the roaster, pour the beer over top and place the heat at 250 and let it cook all day. I check it on and off to turn the cabbage if it is drying out. One hour prior to eating, I turn the heat up to 350.
This imparts the most tender corned beef ever, it practically falls apart.
leftover corned beef sliced thin
Swiss cheese slices
Thousand Island dressing
I heat the corned beef slices up by sauteing them in a pan with a little butter. Once heated up, I cook the Reuben's they way you might make grilled cheese:
butter the rye bread, place it on the skillet
add corned beef
1 tbs of Thousand Island dressing
add Swiss cheese
place buttered rye bread on top
cook both sides until evenly browned
Serve with chips and enjoy!
