Dilly Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe

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!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 2-1/2 hours Broil: 5 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 corned beef brisket (2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard, divided
  • 1 medium head cabbage (3 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dill weed


  • 1. Place brisket with its seasoning packet in a Dutch oven; add enough water to cover. Cover and simmer 2-1/2 hours or until tender. Remove the brisket and place on a broiling pan; reserve cooking liquid in Dutch oven. Combine the honey and 1 teaspoon mustard; brush half over meat.
  • 2. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 3 minutes. Brush with the remaining honey mixture; broil 2 minutes more or until glazed. Meanwhile, cut cabbage into eight wedges; simmer in cooking liquid for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
  • 3. Combine butter, dill and remaining mustard; serve with cabbage wedges and sliced corned beef. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"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."

"This briscuit along with Irish Soda bread made a very good meal. I added 1/2 cup apple juice to the cooking liquid and added baby carrots along with the cabbage wedges to the cooking liquid. I have one question. Should I have placed the meat fat side up or down in the Dutch Oven? Thanks for your input."

"we too eat corned beef year round...I buy 5 or 6 of them at St. Patrick's time(cheaper then), they freeze wonderfully, put it frozen in the crock pot and cook on medium all day long and dinner is ready come evening and oh the smell all day!"
