I made this for St Paddy's day dinner. It was on the greasy side but corned beef is normally greasy. I prepared it exactly using the cabbage but left out the onions (personal preference). The 3 people in the family that ate it said it was good.
The vegetables were just too greasy and salty when prepared this way, for my taste. Didn't work for me, Marsha. Sorry.
