Corned Beef and Cabbage

Corned Beef and Cabbage is a classic St. Patrick's Day dish. Since this holiday is on Thursday, I am including this in my menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie. Here is my menu this week:

Also, $5 Dinners inspires us all to make low cost dinners. In that spirit, I am taking what Pick N Save has on sale, pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! Of course, Corned Beef was on sale at Pick N Save this week and so was cream cheese! I grabbed a bunch to make my featured recipe today:

Corned Beef DinnerServes: 8
3 1/2 lb Corned beef
4 cups Water
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic
1 onion
1 small cabbage
4 medium carrots
4 medium potatoes
1/8 tsp pepper
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/4 cup milk
4 Tbl horseradish

1. Preheat oven to 425. For meat and vegetables, rince brisket with
cold running water; trim off excess fat. Pour water into a roasting
pan. Place brisket and bay leaf in the pan and top with garlic.

2. Cut onion into thick wedges. Cut cabbage and potatoes into
quarters and carrots into 2-inch squares.Arrange onion and cabbage
around the brisket. Top with carrots and potatoes. Sprinkle with
pepper. Bake 1 1/2 hours or until brisket is fork-tender.

3. For sauce, combine cream cheese, milk and horseradish in a small
saucepan. Wisk over medium heat until warm.

4. Carve brisket diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve
with vegetables and sauce.

sounds yummy! I like corned beef. But I've noticed over the past few years I get acid reflux more often with it. must be age or something.

I've never tried to make corned beef at home. Sounds like a great week!

Perfect for St. Patty's day!

We do this for the restaurant every year and it's so popular. However, I have never even tried it! Isn't it horrible that the only corned beef I've ever tasted comes from the can?

My dad is going out of town before St. Patty's Day so my mom is making this very meal tonight. Fun to see someone else celebrates with this tradition too.

Sorry you enjoy this meal. I am not a fan of it. Enjoy!!

Michelle said...

Wow, this is a way I've never had corned beef. I like the baking of it instead of boiling. Does it help to bring, or no?

I have a friend that makes this and I surprisingly like it. Now I have the recipe to do the same!
