    I like to cook mine with the dutch oven too. Your recipe is a nice change from boiling the meat. I love how you savor the taste! Was it salty at all? Very creative recipe - I'm gonna try this thank you! My GF hates any meat that is red inside. I have to burn her steak and we can't have prime rib because she won't eat the pink inner roast. I had to convince her to eat the corned beef and she liked mine. She's from the south so maybe she'll like this recipe!

    You had me -when you said “ let’s pepper this girl”
    I don’t like boiled meat either - and don’t like cabbage- butttttt you make this like my mamma did cause she’s the only one that made this where I liked the cabbage 😀💕💕. I’m ready to give this a try since my momma passed away - my mom called it “ Better than SEX corned beef & cabbage “ lol
    Thank you for this- video 😀

    Damn the corn beef already has enough salt, use the juices from that sparingly to season everything else, why add more to your cabbage, it looks amazing honestly, but are you looking for high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and possibly a heart attack?

    So, there is no need to soak the meat and change the water to get some of the salt out? I really want to make this dish for ST. Patrick's day for my family but I don't want it too salty to enjoy. No way am I going to boil it, never. It's either your way or no way at all, lol! TFS your wonderful dish and recipe.

    • Yahsgrace &mercy
      Yahsgrace &mercy 10 months ago

    • Udieng Tajang
      Udieng Tajang 11 months ago

      I usually soak my corned beef for a few hours first before I cook mine but I believe adding brown sugar and maybe vinegar too can temper the saltiness.

      No, mine was not salty at all but everybody's palate is different. Adjust to your taste. Thanks for watching.

  • Ithila

    Gurlfriend, I'm a new sub and I love how you cook but I have to tell you that isn't "juice" it's blood from the meat. You wanna pour old blood that has drained from the meat over your food before you cook it, that's fine, but I won't. I rinse the meat before I begin to prepare it because bacteria thrive in the blood of dead animals and better safe than sorry. You don't lose taste by not using that blood unless you are feeding a crowd of Vampires. Btw, those are some FINE looking rings you have on.

    • gojo197zero

      Please read the package the red liquid is a salt brine solution and should be rinsed although many people do not rinse it. It's supposed to aid in the pickling process.

    • Shamyra Boone
      Shamyra Boone 11 months ago

      It’s not blood , it’s a brine the market uses for the meat

    Gathering my recipes for St. Patrick's Day - next week already. Decided on your fried cabbage with bacon. Making corned beef Meso style looks so delicious. You are right, boiling corned beef is not very good. My husband and I ate corned beef and cabbage several times a year. For the holiday, we made two roasts in our 18 quart slow cooker as he loved corned beef sandwiches.
    I'm up for something new as I no longer have the big slow cooker.Your method looks very similar to how I'd cook corned beef. But I'm salivating over how you seasoned it. My stomach even gave an "I want!" rumble. I'll cook the fried cabbage in my dutch oven so I can cook an entire large head. However, think I will try cooking the corned beef in my new Instant Pot, after searing it in my cast iron dutch oven on the stovetop.
    And I'll make a double batch of your hot water cornbread that I enjoyed last week. Haven't decided the dessert yet. Might be a complete Meso meal here - considering your icebox pie recipe.

      mine too! I grew up
      In the south. My first taste of soul food and I was hooked.
      My best friends mother would always invite me to Sunday dinner. I was the only
      Little white blonde haired girl at the table, but I was always made to feel like I was family.
      Mabel, ( mama ) taught me how to cook a few dishes/ like her homemade Mac and cheese. It’s totally amazing! I sure do miss her ☹️ I was six years old at the time, and she died when I was eleven years old. I mourned for months. But I know she’s somewhere out there giving me inspiration to cook some mean meals! Food is my passion too. Blessed Be 🌛😁🌜
