Corned Beef and Cabbage
Whether you are Irish or not, when St. Patrick's day comes around during the month of March, Corned Beef and Cabbage can be found in abundance in all supermarkets. It makes for the ultimate satisfying Sunday dinner!
Being Italian we never ate corned beef and cabbage meal, but once I met my husband and married 19 years ago, it was a must for him, especially at this time of the year and I fell in love with this tasty beef brisket.
This classic cabbage recipe for St Patrick's day just needed a little tweak to make it lower in carbs. Just by removing the potatoes typically in this recipe, it lowers the carbs significantly.
Of course if carbs are not a problem for you and you're not on a keto diet, just add them back into the veggies I've used here.
Even my kids who aren't too keen on boiled veggies especially soft cabbage, of course they prefer a larger portion of the corned beef brisket as opposed to the veggies, but it's all good to me.
It's a winning recipe for my whole family! I always just throw away the seasoning packet.
Even my kids who aren't too keen on boiled veggies enjoy eating this, of course they prefer a larger portion of the beef as opposed to the veggies, but it's all good to me.
Instant Pot Best Corned Beef and Cabbage
Some of you may not have an Instant Pot, which is basically a pressure cooker, that is certainly fine as I've provided directions for making this in a crock pot or slow cooker as well.
Both taste equally delicious, but the Instant Pot cuts the cook time down by half if you were making this on the stove top in a Dutch oven.
Whichever method you choose to use to cook this scrumptious meal, I'm sure you won't have any complaints from the family. It's tasty and comforting!
Even my picky hubby who is a meat and potatoes man but recently is eating low carb recipe, didn't complain there were no potatoes in this. That is a little miracle to me to be honest with you!
