Anyway, I had to go searching for a recipe, and I found one that sounded pretty good HERE. Later I realized that I probably hadn't gotten enough meat, so I ran back to the store to pick up some more. I decided to make the dish both ways, traditional and non traditional. Traditional is basically simmering the roast for 2 hours, then boiling the cabbage in the same water. However, everyone agreed that the non-traditional way was more delicious, hands down.
Stick about 12 cloves into the meat, then slather with hot honey mustard and sprinkle with brown sugar. Wrap in foil and bake at 350 for about 2 hours. Take off the foil and broil for about 15 minutes so that the roast gets nice and brown on top.
Chop up the cabbage into strips and then heat up some olive oil with chopped garlic and onions. Throw in the cabbage and saute it until it gets nice and brown. Waaay better than boiled.
Total for this meal:
Corned Beef - $5.47
Sweet Honey Mustard: $1.50
Cloves: .10 cents ( bulk spices are your friends!)
Olive oil, onions and garlic from stockpile
Total meal cost under $10! Not bad for a dinner party! :)
Now dessert was a different story...but that's another post.
