    SoCalCookerGal's Note:

    This recipe comes from Cooking Light magazine. Just in time for St. Patrick's Day! This dish is more authentic than the traditional corned beef and cabbage that we eat here. The Irish bacon is also leaner than American bacon Please keep the recipe authentic and do not substitute the boiling bacon for American bacon because the recipe will not turn out right.
