Tips when cooking: Cabbage can be used in many cooking applications. You can shave it raw to eat in salads or tacos and add it to various stews and soups. This dish is comforting , hearty and a big crowd pleaser. I enjoy making it for my family during a holiday. I’ve played around with this recipe a little in terms of different spice blends and cooking times. My Irish friends recommend using mustard as a condiment when serving. Cooking the beef for almost 3 hours definitely makes it more tender and adding the           ‘Gravy Master’ is a little shortcut to add much more depth and richness of flavor.  You can find the ‘Gravy Master’ in almost every supermarket including Walmart.
