Braised Cabbage

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the cabbage, carrot, onion, thyme and smashed garlic in a baking dish or large cast iron skillet. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and add the vinegar and 1/4 cup water. Cover with foil and bake for 2 hours.

Corned Beef

  1. Add the corned beef, pickling spices, bay leaf, thyme, and beer to a large pot. Add cold water leaving just the top part of the corned beef exposed. Bring to a boil over high heat. Turn heat down, cover and simmer for 2 hours.
  2. When the beef is done use tongs to remove it from the liquid. Allow to cool slightly and then slice thinly. Serve with the braised cabbage and vegetables.
