Well, I LOVE Corned Beef and Cabbage and I also love to let it sort of make itself!
St Patrick’s Day Irish Corned Beef & Cabbage with a Leprechaun Kick!
Actually, Leprechauns are little, so their kick…well you aren’t going to really feel it so don’t let that scare you off.
You are going to need:
- A Crock Pot
- A Corned Beef with packaged spices
- Fresh Cabbage ( I use 2 heads if I can squeeze them in) Quartered
- Carrots ( keeping it simple I use cleaned and ready to use baby carrots)
- Little Potatoes (Optional, I eat low carb typically I omit the potatoes, but for the sake of my readers I am eating them 🙂 )
- Yellow Onions ( I used 2 – 3)
- ***1 Bottle Boulevard Irish Ale (of course not any beer will do!)
- ***4 TBS inglehoffer Original Stone Ground Mustard (Gold Medal Winner Napa Valley World Mustard Championships! because only the best will do)
- 3 TBS Cider Vinegar
- Hot Sauce to taste ( 2 tsp)
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- 2 Cups Water
***Denotes SECRET INGREDIENTS! Shhhh….
That’s it! Toss it all into the Crock Pot and turn it on low for 8 hours.
You will be craving it before it’s ready because the house will fill up with the scent of scrumptious.
Now just in case you didn’t finish it all at the first sitting….
Use the Left Overs to make
St Patrick’s Day Homemade Reubens!
Gather these ingredients:
- Sliced Corned Beef
- Sliced Bread (thick is great, a sourdough awesome, but I am using an artisan for mine because that was what I could find)
- 1 Can Saurkraut
- Thousand Island Dressing
- Sliced Pepper Jack Cheese (I like my food to speak to me)
- Soft Butter
- Inglehoffer Original Stone Ground Mustard
- Heat up a griddle or skillet to medium high.
- Spread a bit of butter on one side of your bread and place on the hot griddle.
- Spread with mustard, then layer the meat and saurkraut and top with the jack cheese and dob some Thousand Island on.
- Lay the top piece of bread butter side out on top.
- Once browned on one side (perhaps 1 minute) use a spatula to flip and brown the other side.
Serve with Potatoes O’Brien! YUM
I hope these recipes give you something to try out over the month of March and enjoy the flavor of corned beef! Please let me know if you try it and who you liked it. Join the party with your decor, celebrations or recipes!
