Maine Boiled Dinner

I was hesitant to do this recipe and have been shying away from others like it for the fact that I'm not sure how I am going to turn it into a dish that can be served here at the cafe. However I read through Marjorie's long description of Maine Boiled Dinner and decided to give it a try. 

"At the first sign of fall you hear Maine people talking about a boiled dinner. We make boiled dinner the year round nowadays but when the new potatoes, carrots, cabbage, turnips and beets are ready in the gardens, then you hear the remark, 'we must have boiled dinner'." Marjorie Standish

For our Maine Boiled Dinner we served Corned Beef Brisket with carrots, cabbage, potatoes, and beets. It smelled absolutely delicious while it was cooking and came out tender and juicy. Though the description was long and involved it was actually easy to pull together and not very complicated. It just took awhile for all the vegetables and the meat to steam in the the water. 

I highly recommend this recipe to anybody looking for an easy dinner. And it is a recipe that could even been be done in the crock-pot.
