Corned Beef and Cabbage

Well it’s St. Patrick’s Day so of course I had to make Corned Beef and Cabbage. It’s really Corned Beef with Cabbage, Turnips, Potatoes and Carrots so it’s a complete meal.

It’s a simple recipe with just a few ingredients but the result is tasty zesty tender wings. I’m guessing this is one of those women’s magazine recipes but don’t be fooled by the basic ingredients. The flavours really work together. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
