Corned Beef & Cabbage

Hi All,

This is our gluten/dairy free corned beef & cabbage we enjoy once a year for St. Paddy’s day. This is always such a delicious and salty bundle of joy! I don’t know why we don’t enjoy it more often during the year!

I felt a little bad for our son after watching all the Facebook posts on St. Paddy’s Day. I can’t believe all the fun and creative things people do with their kids around this holiday. I did next to nothing.

The morning of the 17th, my husband said “Aren’t we going to have corned beef & cabbage?”. So off to Whole Foods I went to make our yearly dish!

Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…

Corned Beef & Cabbage

  • PLACE 3 pounds marinated corned beef fat side up into your slow cooker.
  • ADD 1 peeled/chopped onion, 4 large peeled/chopped red potatoes, 4 medium sized peeled/chopped colored carrots, 1-32. oz. box bone broth, 2 bay leaves, 1 tbsp. garlic powder, and a little S/P.
  • COOK on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours in your slow cooker.
  • PLACE 1 small chopped head of cabbage and 1 tbsp. crushed fennel seeds into slow cooker.
  • COOK for another 1/2 hour or more, just until the cabbage is tender.
  • ADD S/P to taste.

They say to have at least a pound of meat per person, but I think I’ll do more next year. The meat to vegetable ratio was a little off. I will post what I did with my leftovers this year tomorrow.

I got my corned beef from the meat counter at Whole Foods. They marinate it in house for like 12 days. I’ve done the Welshire before which is just as good. I haven’t taken the time to prepare my own marinade in years.

Grateful Day – I’m grateful for my patience with trying to figure out the blogging world. I’m lost on a lot of things, but have high hopes for figuring it all out one day.

What traditions do you do for St. Patrick’s Day?

Thank you for listening!

  1. This is an interesting recipe for corned beef and cabbage. I am accustomed to the canned version with shredded cabbage, scallion, thyme and plum tomatoes. With rice. I want to try marinating beef but I’m not brave enough. I will try it out though, on a small portion. I usually prepare marinades for salmon or grilled chicken. Have a lovely weekend. xo

      1. It’s like, everywhere, on supermarket shelves. Libby’s is a good brand. There’s too much for one person, so I use one quarter with about one quarter of cabbage. The ingredients add up. For a great combination, I use boiled green bananas instead of rice. Let me know if you can see this image and the video.
