So back to corned beef and cabbage. For the past two or three years my mother has been giving up beef for Lent, so she hasn't made corned beef and cabbage until after Easter sometime. This year I finally decided to make my own, so I was able to make some small adjustments... I used my brand new crockpot to boil the meat until tender, and then added the potatoes. Once the potatoes were finished , I mashed them, added half& half and Earth Balance. I also boiled the cabbage separately and added tons of dried red chili flakes. I have never been a fan of vegetables cooked with meat because they always end up a little greasy to me, and if I'm gonna eat vegetables I prefer that they are light and fresh.
We've never put any condiments on our corned beef, but I think this might be a good choice. My corned beef turned out a little saltier than I like (no I did not add any salt to the water), so the horseradish cream might balance things out a bit.

These both look awesome!!! Although checking out the recipes, I would make some tweaks, but otherwise, yum yum!
