MAKE IT
1) Pour the stock into a large 4-gallon stockpot over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Add the pickling spice, garlic, bay leaves and cloves. Reduce the heat to medium, then add the beef, cabbage, and carrots. Simmer until tender, 3 hours. Season with salt and pepper.

2) Heat a few inches of oil to 325 degrees F in a deep pot.

3) Fry the potatoes wedges until tender, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove and season with salt and pepper.

4) To build the plate, place wedges of cabbage on a plate with corned beef next to it, then add potatoes and carrots and finish with 2 to 3 ounces of the cooking broth on top.
