NRW: Easy Corned Beef and Cabbage

17 Mar

In Honor of St. Patricks Day and all of my fellow Irishmen, I give you the (non)traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage

4 slices bacon
4 tablespoons butter
1 head green cabbage, coarsely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 can corned beef


  1. Cook the bacon in large pot over medium heat until almost crisp. Remove the bacon from the pot and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the pot with the bacon grease. Add the cabbage, stirring well to coat the cabbage in fat.
  3. Add about 1/3 cup water, and salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Cover pot with a lid, and cook over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the bacon into small pieces. 
  5. Remove the lid from the pot, and scatter chunks of corned beef and chopped bacon over top of the cabbage. Cover and cook until desired doneness.
