Does anyone like corned beef and cabbage?

Today is #CornedBeefandCabbage Day. I wrote this blogpost last year on my Cabbage and Semolina Blog. It didn’t get many views so I thought the post could have another outing here.

The post includes a couple of newspaper clippings from the British Newspaper Archive.

I’ve had a subscription to the BNA for over two years and whenever I visit the site I always find treasure. It’s great for family history researching and for general interest as well providing many unique insights into times gone by. It’s at


  1. Yes! Cabbage and corned beef is a delicious dish, but not out of a tin. I prefer the real deal, so-called “boiled dinner”. A 3-5 pound piece of real corned beef, in the pressure cooker for an hour, or slow cooker, I suppose, or a cast iron pot on the wood stove, until fork tender, then toss in a bunch of potatoes in chunks and cook until nearly done, then add some green cabbage wedges and carrots and cook on until these are tender. Place the meat on a platter, surrounded by the spuds and veg, and serve with the sauce poured over and mustard on the side. Very satisfying!

    1. That sounds a tasty recipe. I’m not familiar with “real corned beef” though so am stuck with the tins. There is a reduced sugar ad salt version now which is more palatable!
