Reviews for New England Boiled Dinner
"This dinner brings back memories-when I was a kid we ate it often as we grew everything in the garden except the meat and instead of corned beef brisket we used pork-either loin or butt-I preferred the butt roast as it was more moist. So delicious. Right now pork is less expensive than beef-so might want to try it."
"Thank you for this recipe, I am a Northern Wisconsin,transplanted to the south and it is impossible to find this recipe in the south.Even though I have been here sence 1962 I do miss some of our great "Yankee" cooking. Thanks so much."
"Made this for years. Just cook corned beef until tender than throw in veggies. Instead of turnips I use frozen corn on the cob halves. Can also add celery. Delicious and just one pot clean up. Broth can be used to make a great base for soup."
