Newfoundland Jigg’s Dinner
Jigg’s dinner is a traditional Newfoundland meal of corned beef, potatoes, vegetables, and dumplings. Simmered for hours and bursting with flavor.

Corned beef should soak in cold water for eight hours to overnight in the refrigerator.

Beef should be drained, then placed in a big Dutch oven with fresh water on top.

Peas should be wrapped three times in cheesecloth and tied tightly.

Add the bag to the Dutch oven containing the beef.

Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for two hours.

Add carrots and cabbage turnip to the pot.

For 25 minutes, simmer.

Add potatoes and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender to the fork.
