Helpful Hints:

Corned beef brisket sometimes comes with its own flavor packet in which case you should use that for the spices.

The watercress as a garnish is always a hit on St. Patrick's Day since it resembles shamrocks. In our family, the day is not complete without corned beef and cabbage, some soda bread & jam, and a little Irish coffee!
