St Patrick’s Day - Corn Beef & Cabbage

Posted by mike on 18 Mar 2008 | Tagged as: Food

corn beef

For Jamaican’s corn beef and cabbage is also known as Bula-Beef and cabbage.  The corn beef comes in a can.  It is very easy to make.  I open a can of Libby’s corn beef, cut up some cabbage and onions.  First I sautee the onions and cabbage with a little bit of oil, then add the corn beef.  I add a dash of black pepper and some PickaPepper sauce.  We normally eat this with hardo bread or white rice.  This dish is done in less than 10 mins.

When Mike first saw this he was surprised and maybe disgusted by the corn beef in a can.  To me this was normal.  I was not familiar with the “fresh” corn beef.

Yesterday was my first attempt to make this dish in honor of St Patrick’s Day.  I stopped by Publix supermarket on the way home and picked up the ingredience.

I tried to read the package as best as I could but the instructions package was hard to read. First I cut open the package and wash the meat.  Well this was the first mistake.  Then I added cold water and started to boil the meat with the season pack.  I then placed some potatoes to boil in a seperate pot.  Ok, the second mistake.  While these were cooking I started to cut up the cabbage.  I cut them into quarters and cut the core off.  Now this was my third mistake.  Not knowing these things before, I would of striken out. 

After 2 hours of cooking, the review was it was a “good attempt”.

Next year I can do one of these options:
Go to Mike’s mom’s house for St Patricks Day, her corn beef & cabbage is the best
Attempt to cook the dish again with some instructions
Stick to Bula-beef!

It’s a boy!

To Blog or not to Blog?

That is the question?

Will anyone ready my blog?
What would I write about?

I discovered that there is a cyber world out there of social bloggers after going to
Barcamp Miami with Fanless a well known blogger.

I could never play in the same playground as these bloggers but I can try to at least update my blog periodically. My first goal with this blog was to update our family and friends with wedding updates. So now what is next after the wedding?

Let’s see what inspiration comes next.
Stay tune for my next post.
Will it be about married life? Hobbies and interest? Or pictures from family events?
Who knows. Let’s see where this goes.
