Made this for our St Patrick's day party. 40 people attended and ate the corned beef and the response were all positive. Will make again.

Easy one dish meal. Only thing I did different was when I removed the onion and celery I strained my broth then returned the meat to broth/pot. It removed the larger pieces of fat and large spices.

Thisis the traditional St. Paddy's day dinner at our house. I passed on the carrots. The leftovers made hash the next morning.
