Corned Beef Brisket

2 quarts cold water
1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
4 tablespoons Tony Chachere seasoning
3 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons salt
3 to 5 pounds brisket trimmed
1 large onion, chopped
4 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 small cabbage cut in 4 to 6 pieces
5 potatoes, peeled and cut in 4 pieces

In a large pot, add water, seasonings and brisket. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium and cook 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until almost tender. Add vegetables and cook until brisket breaks apart with a fork, about another half hour. During cooking process, water will have to be added, but try to keep only 2 quarts of water in the pot while cooking.
