St. Patrick's Day Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe Made Easy with The MeatStick Smart Wireless Meat Thermometer

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with a classic dish like corned beef and cabbage? While this recipe may seem intimidating, it's actually quite simple to make, especially with the help of a few tips and tricks.

Choosing the Right Cut of Corned Beef

Before you get started on the recipe, it's important to know that corned beef is a brisket that has been cured in salt and other spices. There are two main cuts of corned beef: the flat cut and the point cut. The flat cut is leaner and more uniform in shape, making it easier to slice. The point cut, on the other hand, has more fat and marbling, making it more flavorful and tender. When choosing your cut of corned beef, consider your personal preferences and the size of your cooking vessel.


Cooking Corned Beef


  • Rinse the corned beef under cold water to remove any excess salt and pat dry.
  • In a large pot, combine the water, beer, garlic, bay leaf, sugar, black pepper, and salt.
  • Add the corned beef to the pot and bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pot, and let it cook until the internal temperature reaches 195F.
  • Add the potatoes, carrots, and onion to the pot and continue cooking for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Add the chopped cabbage to the pot and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the cabbage is tender.
  • Remove the corned beef and vegetables from the pot and let them rest for 10 minutes before slicing the meat.
