Luck of the Irish Corned Beef Brisket Recipe
4 - 5 lbs. corned beef brisket with seasoning packet
3 quarts water
2 onions, halved and stuck with 2 cloves each
6 carrots, peeled and halved
1 large head cabbage, cut into 8 wedges
2 bay leaves
3 sprigs fresh parsley
12 peppercorns, crushed
12 coriander seeds
1 1-inch cinnamon stick
Place corned beef and seasoning packet in large heavy pot; add water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour. Add onions and carrots. Bring back to a boil and skim off fat.
Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer approximately 2 - 4 hours until beef is tender. When brisket pierces easily, it is ready.
Drain the water, place brisket on a platter and let stand about 10 minutes. Slice diagonally across the grain and serve with cabbage, carrots and onion.
