New England boiled dinner


Originally made with salted beef, today this East Coast classic more commonly contains corned beef, ham or salt pork. Additional items such as chicken, cabbage, potatoes, parsnips, onions, carrots and seasonings are added at various times and slowly simmered together to create this hearty one-pot meal. New England boiled dinner is traditionally accompanied by horseradish and mustard.
