ORIGINAL IRISH CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE
• One 4 pound Corned Beef Brisket (uncooked), in brine
• 16 cups cold water
• 2 bay leaves
• 2 teaspoons black peppercorns
• 4 whole allspice berries
• 2 whole cloves
• 1/2 large head green cabbage (about 2 pounds), cut into 8 thick wedges
• 8 small new potatoes (about 1 1/4 pounds), halved
• Freshly ground black pepper
• Serving suggestion: Whole Grain mustard or horseradish sauce
>> Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
>> Place the Corned Beef in a colander in the sink and rinse well under cold running water.
>> Place the Corned Beef in a large Dutch oven with a tight fitting lid, add the water, bay leaves, peppercorns, allspice and cloves. Bring to a boil uncovered, and skim off any scum that rises to the surface. Cover and transfer pan to the oven, braise until very tender, about 3 hours.
>> Transfer the Corned Beef to a cutting board and cover tightly with foil to keep warm. Add the cabbage and potatoes to the cooking liquid and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

Lay the slices over the cabbage and surround it with the potatoes. Ladle some of the hot cooking liquid over the Corned Beef and season with pepper. Serve immediately with the mustard or horseradish sauce.
