Easy Brisket and Cabbage
While you might find this a great substitute for the traditional corned beef and cabbage dish on St. Patrick’s Day, make no mistake, this is not an Irish dish. In fact, the cabbage in this recipe is the star and the meat is used as a garnish.
This was my mother-in-law Betty’s recipe … You know, passed on to me to make my husband very happy. Does this still happen today … mothers-in-law passing recipes to daughters-in-law? I enjoyed it! Her cooking was so different from all I had experienced.
As for my three sons, they are quite good cooks and occasionally they will ask for a recipe. Or better yet, share a recipe with me! In fact, Stephen, where is that barbecue ribs recipe you promised me?
Betty was amazing in the kitchen. I can’t say she was really into cooking all that much when I knew her. But she could put a few ingredients together quickly … I’d think to myself … hmm, really? It was always delicious!
I hope you will enjoy this soup recipe with brisket garnish.
