Corned Beef with Cabbage

Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 3 hours, 40 minutes
Ready in 3 hours, 50 minutes
Makes 8 servings


  • 2 medium yellow onions
  • 2 lbs corned beef brisket
  • 1 lb baby red potatoes
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1/2 head green cabbage (about 1 lb)


1. Peel and slice the onions and place in a large pot along with the corned beef, bay leaves, coriander seeds and peppercorns. Add enough cold water to cover the meat, and simmer gently, covered, for 3 1/2 hours. If you don’t have that time choose a slow cooker corned beef recipe instead.
2. Cut the cabbage into quarters and remove the core. Add the cabbage and the potatoes to the pot for the last half hour of cooking and simmer until potatoes are fork tender.
3. Slice the corned beef into 1/4-inch-thick slices, reserving half for another meal, and serve with the potatoes and cabbage.
