Corned Beef, Sautéed Cabbage and Onions, and Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

Corned Beef, Sautéed Cabbage and Onions, and Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’ve never made corned beef before and I was excited to try it out this year. I thought about baking it or roasting it but I decided to go the traditional route and boil it. I have to say, boiling meat seemed a bit strange to me but I was pleasantly surprised when I ate it because it turned out tender, juicy and delicious. I served the corned beef with cabbage, potatoes and carrots. I sautéed the onions and cabbage with olive oil and minced garlic for a simple but flavorful side dish – much better than soggy cabbage. Instead of boiling the carrots and potatoes, I decided to roast them with simple seasonings and olive oil, they turned out perfect. This was a delicious meal that we all enjoyed, my kids especially loved the corned beef. I served the meat with whole grain mustard and sweet and spicy mustard – both were terrific dipping sauces.

Place the pre-seasoned corned beef into a Dutch oven, fat side up, and cover with water. Simmer for 1 hour per pound or until a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees.

Roasted Carrots and Baby Fingerling Potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil (for easier cleanup) and spray with olive oil cooking spray. Add the carrots and potatoes to the baking sheet and drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil onto veggies then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, toss to coat evenly. Place into the oven and roast for 25-35 minutes, until carrots and potatoes are fork tender. Remove from the oven.

    Thinly sliced corned beef is wonderful on dark rye bread. Good idea for grocery shopping day!

    I'll be making this tomorrow! Your roasted potatoes and carrots look delicious! I think I'll still boil mine for simplicity's sake, but that's a great idea. For your leftovers… nothing beats homemade corned beef hash! That's kind of the whole reason I make the meal.

    I love corned beef. I think I will wait and do ours this weekend. We are going up to the mountains for 4 days because we have to be out of our home for fumigation. UGH!!! My mother in law always mixed a good spicey mustard with some sour cream and a wee bit of horseradish for a lovely sauce to spread on good rye bread for sandwiches the next day with our corned beef!!!
    Yours looks

    Great looking St Patty's Day spread!

    All of this corned beef talk going on has me ready to do one thing. Make a corned beef and then smoke it for pastrami. I'm a southern boy but learned last year that homemade pastrami is ridiculously great.

    I've been seeing corned beef and Irish cooking in every blog now! Ah, I feel so left out on the St. Patrick themed celebrations! I guess I'll just have to live (eat) vicariously through you! 🙂

    I like how you prepared the cabbage rather than boiling it. I made corned beef for the first time this year, too. I cooked it in the slow cooker and it turned out great.

    homemade corned beef? right on, pam–good for you! it's not my cup of tea, but i do love mustard and can eat anything if it's smothered with enough of the yellow stuff. 🙂

    I've never made corned beef before either and didn't even realize that it was traditionally boiled! I would probably go the slow cooker route…but that's just because I'm lazy.

    This looks delicious! You've made the Irish everywhere proud!

    Very nice, and the roasted vegetables look wonderful. I will have to try those. I love corned beef, my Mom use to simmer it and finish it in the oven with a glaze of orange marmalade and grainy mustard. I still make it that way myself.

    FoodTherapy4Me — March 17, 2010 @ 12:49 pm

    How festive!! Great spin on a traditional boiled dinner! We love this yearly tradition. Typically I just wait until the day after to buy the marked down beef, so end up celebrating a day or so late. Leftover are awesome too. Looks delicious!!

    I *love* corned beef…we only have it on St. Patty's day to keep it special and fun. I'm so glad you decided to boil it, since it was your first time making it; I don't know how roasting would be since I think it's a pretty tough piece of meat. Yay for corned beef and cabbage!!

    Another beautifully constructed dish! Here's a link if you ever want to try making your own corned beef. I do it off and on using inexpensive cuts of beef instead of brisket.

    I adore corned beef! I have been deprived for decades because my dearly beloved does not love it. Maybe he doesn't like it because it always came as part of the "New England Boiled Dinner" which is all your ingredients tossed into the pot.

    This was totally delicious. We had it today. My husband likes it all separated instead of put in one pot. The only thing I did different was I added savory flakes to the cabbage. Thanks for sharing these recipes.
