The easiest and fastest way is in a pressure cooker; if you don't have one get the largest pot you have (you may have to cook your veggies and brisket separately). Remove the core from your cabbage head and quarter it. Lay it in the bottom of the pot. Peel your carrots and cut them in half. If you are using small new potatoes with a thin skin give them a rinse and leave them whole; older potates such as russets you'll want to peel and quarter at least. Peel an onion and quarter it add to the vegetables in the pot. If you have a large enough pot to cook all together, rinse your brisket and lay on top of the vegetables. If you are cooking in two pots, cover the veggies with water (I use a can of Guinness then top the pot off with water) and bring to a boil; cover and let simmer about three hours. START your brisket cooking at the same time, either in the pot all together or in the separate pot. Rinse your brisket, sprinkle the seasoning packet over, and cover with liquid either straight beer, water, or a mix of the two. Boil for about 10 minutes then reduce and let simmer til you hit the three hour mark.

One of our fave sides is my homemade Guinness Beer Bread but you can use any fizzy beverage you have on hand to make it, doesn't have to be Guinness doesn't even have to be beer!

-3 cups flour

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-4 tsp baking powder

-1/3 cup oatmeal (plain, whole oats style)

-2/3 cup dark brown sugar (just use what kind you have)

-12 oz Guinness (or other beer, or frothy/fizzy beverage)

-1 Tablespoon oats

-1 Tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan with the 1 Tablespoon butter. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, 1/3 cup oats and brown sugar. Slowly beat in the liquid using a wooden spoon or low speed on an electric mixer. Don't overmix but you don't want it too lumpy either. Pour the batter into the greased pan and sprinkle 1 Tablespoon oats on top. Bake for 50 minutes. The bread is done when a toothpick poked in the middle comes out clean. Check at 45 minutes just in case the bread is done early. Place on a cooling rack and cool to room temperature

My favorite way is to cook it in the crock pot.   I core and chop the cabbage and lay it at the bottom of the crock.  Then, I lay the corned beef and seasonings on top of the cabbage.  If I'm doing other veggies, I chop them and lay them around the corned beef.  Then, I turn on the crock pot to low and let it cook for about 4-6 hours, until the meat is tender.

That is what I am thinking. We just moved and had to buy everything so I didn't get around to making dinner this weekend. You can't cook without pots/pans/crockpot/etc. haha
