"I grew up eating this boiled dinner on Sundays When I visited my Irish Granny. One of the things that makes this recipe special is that instead of corned beef, it calls for Smoked Shoulder. Oh What A yummy smell will fill your kitchen as this cooks!"
Method for Classic Irish Boiled Dinner
- 1Place the smoked pork into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Season with salt and pepper, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes.
- 2Add the carrots, potato, cabbage and onions; cover and continue to simmer. Use kitchen string to tie the green beans into a bundle. Add them to the pot, cover and continue to cook until the carrots and potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.
