Corned Pork, Hoppin’ John, Bourbon Glazed Cabbage

This year, I decided to try something new – as well as try to stay to true to the tradition of black and peas and cabbage on New Year’s Day. Instead of the usual corned beef, I picked up a corned pork brisket from Tails & Trotters. For the black-eyed peas, I decided to try the Hoppin’ John recipe from Couchon. And for the cabbage, I went with Alton Brown’s Whiskey Glazed Cabbage – but used Bourbon instead.

I had been saving a bottle of the Bourbon Barrel-aged Gulden Draak Brewmaster’s Edition from Brouwerij Van Steenberge that my sister gave me specifically for this meal.
