Corn beef and cabbage is an Irish American dish usually served on Saint Patrick's day. This dish is also known as the New England boiled dinner. It is made up of smoked pork shoulder, turnips, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, and onions. The dish usually takes about four hours to make and could feed a family of five for about four to five days. This dish is usually made in a large pot. After the meat and vegetables are boiled some families will serve the meats and veggies on a plate or put it in a bowl. My family just leaves everything in the pot and serves it as a stew. Even though this dish is mainly served on Saint Patrick’s day my family likes to have it for dinner every two weeks or whenever other family members come over.
