    Something else. I've added about 4 ounces (one per portion) of corned beef. We really enjoyed it and my husband (from Kilkenny, he is) said it was just like his mam's - 14 Feb 2009

    don't add this much cabbage/kale! otherwise you won't taste any potato! it's far too much. use about half the kale (which is what we used) in proportion of the potato. having it now with sausages and caramelised onions - absolutely awesome! good recipe! - 27 Mar 2010

    This was good. My husband who hates cabbage even tried some. It was slightly bland though and could definitely use a bit more potato flavor as well. Would make again and just tweak it some. - 09 Mar 2012
