  • 3 lbs of corned beef soaked in pint Guinness overnight
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 5 cloves
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 9 – 10 black peppercorns
  • 1 head of Savoy cabbage
  • 2 lbs peeled potatoes
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup cream
  • 3 sliced spring onion
  • Cooking Directions

    Place the beef and Guinness into a pot and cover with cold water. Add onion, cloves, bay leaves and peppercorns. Cook for 2 – 2 1/2 hrs or until tender.

    Cook the potatoes in salted water, drain and mash. Add half the butter, half the cream and spring onion. Season potato to taste.
