Corned Beef & Cabbage with Orange.

1 corned beef brisket, about 4 lbs.
1 juice orange
18-20 whole cloves
1 tsp. whole yellow mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. caraway seeds
1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns
1/2 tsp. whole coriander
3 lbs. small potatoes, peeled (I like to use Yukon Gold in this dish)
2 1/2 lbs. carrots, peeled and cut into large pieces
1 medium head cabbage
Serves 8

Place corned beef in large stockpot. Wash orange, with peel on, then roll around on counter, pressing down to release the juice inside. Push whole cloves into the orange, scattering them randomly.Cut orange in half, gently squeeze some of the orange juice onto the corned beef and place clove studded orange halves in the pot. Sprinkle spices over meat, then add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until beef is tender, about 3 hours. Drain.

About 40 minutes before beef is finished, boil a large pot of water and cook potatoes and carrots. Add cabbage about 10 minutes before you're ready to serve as it doesn't need to cook long. Drain vegetables. Arrange meat and vegetables on a platter and serve with your favorite mustards.

Corned Beef & Cabbage

by Bruce M. Binder

1 large corned beef brisket
2 or 3 cans (0.7 to 1 kg) of cheap beer, e.g. MGD
a couple of dried chiles, perhaps serranos
1 or 2 teaspoons (5-10 mL) coriander seeds
1 or 2 teaspoons (5-10 mL) mustard seeds
a few dashes cinnamon
a few dashes of allspice
3 or 4 large potatoes, scrubbed and chopped in quarters
5 or 6 carrots, coarsely sliced
3 or 4 turnips, scrubbed and sliced
1 large cabbage, coarsely chopped
1 lb (1/2 kg) mixed beans

Buy a corned beef brisket at your local supermarket. In a pot, pour 12 ounces (340 g) of beer. Add a bay leaf or two, a dried red chile or two, a teaspoon or two (5-10 mL) of coriander seeds, a teaspoon or two (5-10 mL) of mustard seeds, a few dashes of cinnamon, a few dashes of allspice, and all the juice from the corned beef pack. Put the corned beef on a steamer rack in the pot and add water to bring the liquid level up to the bottom of the rack.

Cover the pot and put it on some heat and bring the liquid to a boil. Steam for several hours (it took me five hours for a 4 lb (2 kg) brisket) until the meat doesn't feel rubbery when you stick a fork in it. Add water or beer or both as needed to keep some liquid in the pot.

Remove the meat and slice. Remove the steamer rack. Leave all the other stuff in the pot and put in some potatoes and carrots and turnips or whatever. Add water [or beer!] to cover and boil until the stuff is cooked. Remove all the vegatables and potatoes. Put the steamer rack back in and put in some cabbage wedges. Steam them for about five to ten minutes, depending on how crisp or soggy you like cabbage. Serve.

Get out some beans which you have thoughtfully left soaking overnight in water (I used white beans, red beans and black beans all mixed up). Drain them and put them in a pot. Cover them with the liquid that you have been using to cook the corned beef and cabbage and potatoes and vegatables. The liquid should be about an inch higher than the beans. Simmer for three or four hours or until the beans are as firm or as mushy as you like them.
