This tender pulled corned beef is slow cooked in a roaster pan with cabbage, red potatoes, carrots, onions and fresh sage.  An easy one-pot comfort food meal for St. Patrick’s Day or any time of the year.

Corned Beef with Potatoes

For this hearty corned beef one-pot meal, it takes about 10 minutes to assemble and then the oven and roaster pan do the rest of the work.

And while the corned beef, potatoes and vegetables are cooking, the aroma coming out of the kitchen smells heavenly.

It smells just like comfort food and reminds me of the delicious aroma in the kitchen on Thanksgiving and Christmas from recipes that are made with sage.

About the Corned Beef

Corned beef generally comes with a small package of pickling spices to use as seasoning.

But the pickling spices aren’t used in this recipe.

Instead, this corned beef is seasoned with fresh sage, fresh parsley and ground black pepper.

Since the corned beef is already quite salty, no additional salt is added.

Point Cut vs. Flat Cut Corned Beef:

There are two cuts of corned beef brisket that are commonly available in the grocery store, the “point cut” and the “flat cut“.

Generally, the “point cut” is the cut of corned beef that’s either on sale, or that costs less than the “flat-cut” option.

A “whole” corned beef brisket may also be available which includes both the point and the flat cuts of meat.

Here are some differences between the point cut and the flat cut:

  • The point cut is the thicker end of the brisket and generally has more marbling (fat) and as a result may be juicier and may have more flavor.
  • The flat cut is generally leaner and is easier to slice evenly.

Most often I get the point-cut because it’s the least expensive, but I dig through the packages to see which one is the most evenly cut (doesn’t have one end that’s much thicker and more pointed than the other).

I also like it when the back side of the corned beef packaging is “see-through”, so that I can choose a lean piece of meat.

About Serving

After this one-pot meal has slow cooked in the oven for about 4 hours, the corned beef should easily pull apart with a fork.

The larger pieces of pulled corned beef are especially delicious because the meat is so tender.

And they have a rustic look to them which is appetizing when served with the roasted potatoes and vegetables.

The meat, vegetables and potatoes can be served on a large plate or platter, in separate serving dishes, or right out of the roaster pan.

This dish tastes wonderful when served with the warm juices from the roaster pan ladled on top, and drizzles of olive oil.

And the potatoes and vegetables can also be served topped with butter.

This one-pot corned beef and cabbage meal is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or enjoy it any time of the year.
