“Very sweet tasting. Takes awhile to cook, but in the end it's very satisfying.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill your pot with water and then add in beef brisket making sure the the water fully submerges meat completely.
  2. If a small part of the meat is showing that is fine.
  3. But you ideally want to submerge the whole thing.
  4. You can use any amount of corn beef brisket.
  5. Next add in the spice package that came with your corn beef and only 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of vinegar.
  6. Let this boil about 2 and a half hours to 3 hours, checking back every so often to make sure the beef is still covered in water.
  7. Keep adding as much water as you need to keep the beef submerged.
  8. During the last hour, slice your cabbage up into fairly large/medium pieces and add in your cabbage before potatoes because you want your cabbage to be soft.
  9. Chop potatoes into cubes and add in those as well.
  10. Cook your potatoes and cabbage to your desired softness.
  11. Voila' you're done!
  12. Please be sure to use a very big, big pot. This may boil over because you are combining all these large ingredients. A regular big pot to make beef stew will be too small.
  13. Serving size depends on how much you will eat of it and how big your meat is. I go back for 3rds sometimes so it's hard to say. Enjoy!
