Corned Beef and Cabbage, originally uploaded by dagnyg.

I know St. Patrick’s Day is Friday 3/17/2012, but I decide to make corned beef and cabbage tonight (Thursday).
Place corned beef, spice packet that came with it if you have one, sweet onion cut in half, several garlic cloves in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer.  Cook for 50 minutes per pound of meat.
20 minutes before time is up, add a cabbage cut into quarter.
A nice one pot meal.
Food photography is an art that I’m not a practitioner of. But I give it a shot once in a while. This photo came out pretty good, the food looks appealing and there is quite a bit of detail in the corned beef. Taken with a Nikon D80 using on camera flash, Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8 – 4 lens.
