Chefs and co-owners Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier of the acclaimed Arrows and MC Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, Maine, and Summer Winter in Burlington, Mass., consider their classic boiled beef dinner to be New England home cooking at its best. Their easy, crowd-pleasing Boiled Dinner, Our Way, is a simple, comforting combination of thinly sliced corned brisket of beef, slightly sweet roasted root vegetables, and classic green cabbage.
They write, "If boiled dinner is practically a religious experience in New England, we confess to one sacrilege: We prefer to roast the vegetables separately, which makes them richer and less watery. The exception is the cabbage, which takes on a pleasant, meaty taste when cooked with the brisket."
