This apricot sweet sauce really brings out the flavor in corned beef. It is great to serve the sauce over cooked carrots also!

This is an 'Irish' way to deal with the leftover corned beef after the American corned beef and cabbage feast. My husband considers this a wonderful part of the corned beef cycle. I use red potatoes with skins on, substitute ham for the corned beef, and leeks for the green onions, depends on what's in the fridge.

Mouth watering tender corned beef with corned beef flavored potatoes, cabbage, and carrots. This is my great grandmothers recipe from Ireland. This was served with both Irish soda bread and corn bread at our house.

I think of this sandwich as a cousin to the reuben. It's a cold sandwich of corned beef, topped with Russian dressing and coleslaw, on Jewish rye. Yum!

It will be a mighty 'lucky' group who gets to eat this corned beef on St. Patrick's Day. A spicy and fork-tender treat. My Mother was Irish and she cooked it this way. I'm married to an Irishman, I'm a Lucky Lassie to have him, and he loves this dish!

These sandwiches are really delicious and easy to make. They are one of my family's fix-it-quick favorites. I like to serve them with big bowls of steaming vegetable soup and dill pickles on the side. Enjoy!

Corned beef used to be a weekend only treat for me due to how long it took to cook, until I discovered the Instant Pot®. Save yourself time and hassle by letting your Instant Pot® do all of the work for you, and in a fraction of the time. You can have it and all of the fixings on your table in 2 hours. If you decide to fix cabbage, be sure to keep it in large wedges so that it does not overcook.

Chef John's Corned Beef and Cabbage

It's almost St. Patrick's Day, and for many that means boiling up a nice authentic Irish dinner of corned beef and cabbage. The original Irish recipe actually used a type of lean bacon, made with a cut of pork similar to Canadian bacon. Corned beef came into the picture as a lower-cost substitution, to replace the more expensive and harder to find cut.
