One year, when St. Patrick's Day was coming near, I knew what would happen if I served plain cabbage again—the kids would all take one look and go "yuck"! So I decided to try this recipe. It's now become more or less a family tradition for us come every March 17. In fact, my husband (we're the parents of four and grandparents of five) likes it so much I fix it for him year-round. Friends enjoy it a great deal, too—it makes a great-looking platter!

"This is a very tasty dish - so much more flavourful than traditional corned beef and cabbage!"

"This was very good and even the kids loved it. Lots of flavor in both meat and cabbage which isn't easy to do. I cut the cabbage to half and it was plenty for the 3 pound brisket."
