St Patricks Day

Today is St. Patricks Day, so this past weekend I cooked up Corned Beef and Cabbage. I got the recipe from Epicurious.
I followed it fairly closely. I left out the thyme and used dried parsley flakes and peppercorns. Salt to taste. My only advice is that the cabbage got very soft and mushy because I left it in about 90 mins. That aside its a very easy recipe. Put everything in a pot and simmer for about 2 hours, add in the cabbage and simmer for another hour and you're done.

The beef was so tender, I loved it. The potatoes also came out very nicely. I'll definitely make this recipe again.
4 lb corned brisket of beef
3 large carrots, cut into large chunks
6 to 8 small onions
1 teaspoon dry English mustard
large sprig fresh thyme and some parsley stalks, tied together
1 cabbage
salt and freshly ground pepper

PS. Everything was cooked in the same pot, the potatoes were taken after I had separated the veggies and beef.
