Corned Beef and Cabbage Stew


2.5 lbs of corned beef sliced

1 head of cabbage sliced

3 red potatoes cubed

2 yellow onions sliced

3 carrots sliced

3 cups beef broth

1/2 cup red wine

1 can tomato paste

1 tablespoon caraway seed

2 tablespoons turmeric

1 tablespoon rosemary

1 tablespoon thyme

1 tablespoon red pepper powder

1/3 cup of vinegar

1 bay leaf

2 star anise

4 cloves garlic chopped

vegetable oil

sea salt

lemon pepper seasoning

black pepper


Equipment: Dutch Oven

*I ended up having to buy my corned beef from the neighborhood deli so I asked them slice it thick. Then I sliced it again into strips when I got home*

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On medium heat saute garlic, onions, carrots, sea salt, pepper, thyme, caraway seed and rosemary in vegetable oil. You will use the same dutch oven to do this.

Then combine corned beef and cabbage in the pot. Pour in beef broth, wine, vinegar and tomato paste. Cover with water and stir. Drop in a bay leaf and star anise. Add turmeric and red pepper powder.

Bake a maximum of 1.5 hours until potatoes tender. Remove from oven and stir occasionally and taste the broth to make sure seasoning is where you want it. Sprinkle in sea salt, pepper, and lemon pepper to taste. You can serve with rice or on its own.

Chicken and Cabbage

Okay so what inspired me for this recipe? Meh… is just the fact that I think I don’t eat enough cabbage LOL. Yeah there was nothing profound about it. I just was on a big timecrunch because I had gotten off work a bit later and still had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner all before Sabbath. So while I was at work I compiled my grocery list to cut down on the shopping time. Then came the big question what do I do with those boring chicken strips that have unthawed in the sink? šŸ¤”

Hmm… Time…time..

Got it!

A quick sautee with vegetables and rice boom! So here’s the recipe.


2 lbs chicken strips cut into inch chunks

1/2 a red onion chopped

8 cloves of garlic halfed

1 jalapeƱo chopped

3 carrots sliced

1/2 head of cabbage sliced in strips

1 cup of sliced mushrooms

3 tablespoons tumeric

Sea salt and pepper to taste

1/2 can of chicken stock

1/2 cup of Mirin or a white wine you have handy

olive oil

1 cup of water

Add olive oil liberally to coat bottom of wok on medium heat. Add garlic, red onions, carrots and jalapeƱos. Stir and let cook for about 3 minutes. Then add chicken and Mirin. Begin adding salt and pepper to taste. Stir occasionally. Cook until chicken is halfway done. Then add cabbage, mushrooms, chicken stock, water, tumeric, and stir. Mix the ingredients well. Then leave to simmer 20-25 mins. Stir occasionally. Again add salt and pepper. Once the cabbage has cooked down and the chicken is cooked through you can serve. I paired it with rice and that was a win!
