Tomorrow is St Patrick Day : The Shamrock,Irish Music,The Snake and Corned Beef or Beef Brisket.Each year, thousands of Irish Americans gather with their loved ones on St. Patrick's Day to share a "traditional" meal of corned beef and cabbage. Though cabbage has long been an Irish food, corned beef only began to be associated with St. Patrick's Day at the turn of the century.Irish immigrants living on New York City's Lower East Side substituted corned beef for their traditional dish of Irish bacon to save money. They learned about the cheaper alternative from their Jewish neighbors.The St. Patrick's Day Parade is one of New York City's greatest traditions. On this day, everyone is Irish! The annual procession marches up past Fifth Avenue past St. Patrick's Cathedral at 50th Street all the way up past the Metropolitan Museum of Art at 83rd Street. But I'm ain't going to NYC for the parade..Instead I cooked the simple tradition St Patrick meal today!
3-4 lb corned beef brisket
2 tbsp peppercorn
1 tbsp seasalt
1 liter water
1 head cabbage (2 lb) wash and shredded
4-5 carrot (wash,peel and cut 2 inch)
Mustard in side *optional*
1: Prepare pressure cooker with water at high heat,add in corned beef brisket ,peppercorn and salt.Close the lids and cook for 20-30 minutes .Shut off the heat.
2:Slowly release the pressure notch until the air deplete,then uncover the lid,add in shredded cabbage and carrot,cook for another 15 minutes uncover.Remove pressure cooker pot from heat.
3: Dish out corned beef brisket cabbage and carrot into a large plate. Let's sit for 10 minutes before cut or slice. Serve warm with mustard.
As the corned beef packet suggested to boil the corned beef in water for 3 hours..But I prefer to use pressure cooker,cut the boiling time more than half! Love pressure cooker !! It's god send! lol!
