Corned Beef Short Ribs with Savoy Cabbage

This recipe elevates the classic Saint Patrick's Day faire, swapping traditional beef brisket for short ribs and green cabbage for savoy. The real gold is in the sauce, a touch of wasabi powder adds a subtle kick and vibrant green color.

  1. Combine all the spices in a heavy resealable bag (except the prague powder) and crack the whole seeds and spices by lightly pounding with a heavy rolling pin.
  2. Place the short ribs in a large bowl with half the spices, salt, prauge powder and cover with cold water. Once well mixed, cover and refrigerate for 24-48 hours.
  3. Drain the brine liquid and pat the short ribs dry, brushing off any spices.
  4. Place the short ribs and the remaining spices in a large heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat and add the onion.  Bring to a boil then lower the heat, simmer for 1 hour.
  5. While the short ribs simmer, mix together the sour cream and wasabi powder. Set aside.
  6. Add the carrots and cook for another hour. Add the cabbage and simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes until everything is tender.
  7. In a separate pot, cover the potatoes with cold water, a heavy pinch of salt and cook for 5-7 minutes until a knife point goes in easily. Drain the potatoes, rinse, and cut in half.
  8. Add the sliced potatoes back to the pot over medium heat. Add the cream, salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the potatoes are coated and absorb the cream. Top with the chopped parsley.
  9. To serve, plate a few pieces of each of the vegetables, short ribs and top with the wasabi sour cream.
