This was a recipe my Mom had and we ate it every St. Patrick's Day. An alternative recipe for St. Patrick's Day for those who don't care for corned beef and cabbage. Cooked together in one pot and boy is it juicy! My mom is Irish and hated the traditional corned beef, potatoes, and cabbage version. She got the basis for this recipe from her Italian Mother in Law. Add a nice warm crusty roll, butter, and a pint of Guinness or Pinot Noir and you got yourself a hearty meal to celebrate the Irish!

This is a good basic recipe and was a favorite of mine as a child. Over the years, I've experimented with and now I add two quartered onions and use chicken broth instead of water....Incredible!

I would love to know where I can find the pork butt..years ago in Calif we had them and they were wrapped in a red colored cellophane like package, then I moved to Oregon, where not one butcher knew what I was talking about..same here in Arizona, can't find them.

My family loves ham and cabbage. This is a great basic recipe. The only thing I would do is add a tablespoon of caraway seed for flavor. Yum!
