Happy St. Particks Day


Yesterday I asked the question, "Corned Beef or Smoked Pork Shoulder for dinner?" and now I have an easy recipe for a St. Paddy's Day feast of a Boiled corned Beef and Vegetables dinner. Tomorrow I'll have the same for the Boiled Smoked Pork Shoulder dinner.So get yourself out to the store and grab some meat and veggies, they should be on sale and if you hunt around you can put together a feast for your friends and family for relatively little money.
I got enough to feed 10 people for around $25.1-2 Corned Beef- get twice or even three times as much as you think you'll need so that you have tons of leftovers for sandwiches and hash.1-2 lbs. of Potatoes- Small boilers or Yukon Golds, I like the small Peruvian Purples for their combination of floral and earthy taste that goes so well with this dish and the great color too.3-6 Sweet Onions- like Vidalias or Peruvian Sweets1 Small Cabbage1 lb. of CarrotsAny other root vegetables that catch your fancy like turnips or rutabagas, parsnips, beets, etc.Assorted spices- Pickling spice or make your own with black peppercorns, bay leaves, mustard seed, coriander seed, allspice, clove, etc. Six Pack Guinness Extra Stout

Happy St.Patrick's day. and the Persian way of cooking this meal would be putting everything in a pot full of water and boiling it for two hours, calling it Abgoosht!LOL
