The recipe for this traditional Irish dish calls for brining beef brisket for 5 days to "corn" it. If you want to omit this step, buy 5 lbs. of corned beef from your butcher and proceed to step two.Todd Coleman

I associate this dish with my childhood and the meals my mom served on Sundays. Boiled meat, boiled cabbage, boiled potatoes — I love the simplicity of it. Good and filling. Forgiving. Sometimes even chefs want to cook a dish that's hard to screw up. —Justin Bogle, Gilt, New York City
