Weight Watchers Recipe: Corned Beef and Cabbage with Red Potatoes

No reason to dodge this Irish favorite on St. Patrick's Day: Simply choose lean beef round and boil it in a very well-flavored broth. Ingredients 1 pound(s) lean beef round 1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste 1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste 1 tbsp yellow mustard seed 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground ginger 1/2 tsp ground allspice 1/2 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp coriander seed(s) 1/2 tsp ground cloves 2 piece(s) bay leaf 8 small uncooked red potato(es), halved 16 baby carrot(s) 1 medium head(s) green cabbage, coarsely shredded Instructions Coat beef all over with salt and pepper and place in a large stockpot; pour enough water into pot to cover beef. Add seasonings and bay leaves and stir to coat meat; set pot over high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 40 minutes. Add potatoes, carrots and cabbage and increase heat to medium-high; return to a boil. Partially cover pot and boil, until vegetables and beef are fork-tender, about 10 minutes more. Drain water from meat and vegetables, reserving 1 cup of liquid; discard bay leaves. Thinly slice meat against the grain and serve with vegetables. Pour some reserved cooking liquid over each serving. Yields about 3 ounces of meat, 1 1/2 cups of vegetables and 1/4 cup of cooking liquid per serving.
