Jamaica - Corned Beef and Cabbage

I had problems finding a recipe I could do for Jamaica. I really wanted to make goat stew or jerk chicken but I couldn't get goat meat or the spices needed for jerk seasoning.

After looking around for ages I found this recipe for corned beef and cabbage. I've never eaten cabbage other than in coleslaw or boiled so I thought I'd try this.


* 2 cups of shredded cabbage
* 1/2 chili pepper
* 1 can corned beef
* 1 onion diced
* 1 tbls oil
* black pepper

Heat the oil in a pan and cook the diced onion.

Add the shredded cabbage and chopped 1/2 chili. Stir well and cook for a few minutes.

Add some black pepper and stir again to distribute it well.

Add the corned beef and break up into small pieces. Stir it into the cabbage and cook for 2-3 more minutes to heat it through.

Serve on rice.

I loved this dish. The cabbage was still slightly crunchy and the corned beef was salty and delicious with it. A really good combination. I'll be eating this often. I think I'd prefer to eat it with mashed potato though, the rice was quite plain since there was no sauce to combine with it.


  1. Looks and sounds delicious! I'll be trying that - with mashed potatoes.

    1. I tried it later that year with mash and it really goes well with it. i hope you tried it too, thanks for your comment :)
