Ham, Cabbage, Potatoes w Cheesy Jalapeno Corn Bread

Included in my "Signature Box" from Angel Food was a package of uneven smoked ham slices. Now this surely would not be enough meat to feed my guys! Well, I thought to myself, I bought the "Latin Flavors" produce box too. I have jalapenos, calabacita & chayote squash, and cabbage. Hhhmmm, what can I prepare that won't require another portion of meat and keep them happy??? I decided to prepare an old favorite, Ham and Cabbage with Potatoes, taken from my memory bank of Mom's recipes. I knew I needed something more to make it appealing to my carnivores so I served up some cheesy jalapeno corn bread. That would be quick, easy, and very appealing 'cause they like the spicy stuff almost as much as the meat!

I used my Quick Corn Muffin recipe as a base and alter it just a bit. I prepared the corn muffin recipe as stated. Next I added to the batter 3 tablespoons of diced fresh jalapenos, which I diced in the food processor. Then I stirred in 1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese. Poured into a prepared baking dish rather than a muffin tin, and baked according to the original recipe.

Now for Mom's ham, cabbage, and potato recipe. I thought to myself for just a second, I hope old age
[memory loss] doesn't cause me to screw this up. I immediately dismissed that thought and continued preparing dinner!

You will need:

1 12oz or 16oz package of smoked ham, cut into chunks

5 - 6 medium red potatoes, peeled and cut in quarters

1/2 head cabbage, sliced longways about 1 inch wide

1/2 cup chopped white onion

1 1/2 cups chicken broth (I used prepared chicken bullion)

3 cloves garlic

2-3 Bay leaf

Sea Salt & pepper to taste

Olive oil

Pour just enough olive oil into a large pot to barely coat the bottom. Heat the oil just for a few minutes at medium. Add ham chunks and stir around until they brown just a bit. 

Reduce the heat, add the garlic and onions. Stir and cook on low until onions appear to be soft. Next add the red potatoes and season with sea salt and pepper. After a quick mix I add more pepper to potatoes.

Next, I added the chicken broth and bay leaf. Turn the heat up to medium, stir and watch for the start of a boil. When the broth begins to boil I reduce the heat just a bit, and cover.

Cook about 10 minutes, remove the lid and check the potatoes. They should be about 2/3 of the way done at this point. Add the cabbage slices on top of the mixture.

Cover and cook for about 10 minutes. Cabbage should be almost done. Mix once or twice and cook for about 5 minutes more.

Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner for St. Patrick's Paddy's Day or any time of the year. Easy to make the corned beef in the crock pot or stove top.

This delightful dish was more likely served to kings than to the peasants and was served originally during the Easter feast. A bacon joint or a piece of salted pork boiled with cabbage and potatoes would more likely have shown up for an Easter Sunday feast in the rural parts of Ireland.
Since refrigeration, the trend in Ireland is to eat fresh meats. Today this dish is more popular in the United States than in Ireland. Irish-Americans and lots of other people eat it on St. Patrick's Day, as a reminder of their Irish heritage.

In 1925, "corned beef and cabbage" was voted to be the favorite dish of New York City.
