My boyfriend and I loved our campus Irish pub, but now that we've graduated, we're missing our go-to! I was so excited to try this recipe, and though you may be missing the pub atmosphere, this dish is the perfect balance of that rich, beefy Irish taste and the comfort of home.
1 head cabbage
1 big spoonful of lard or bacon drippings (you can substitute simply with just cooking oil)
For the Vegetables
1 head garlic, halved
1 tablespoon pickling spice
3 1/2 pound uncooked brisket for corned beef, rinsed well and patted dry
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 bottles Guinness beer (or other dark beer)
a few carrots, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1 pound of red potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch chunks
2 tablespoons freshly minced fresh parsley
