Menu Planning for St Patricks Day:

The traditional St Patricks Day meal is Corned Beef and Cabbage, but it’s a healthy diet habit to increase vegetables in your meals, so let’s add root vegetables to the mix.

  • Corned Beef: It’s easy to purchase already brined corned beef. You will simply need to boil it in a 5 to 6 quart Dutch oven, covering it by an inch with water, and then simmer it covered, on low for 4 hours. To serve, slice the meat against the grain, or it will be tough. Serve it with horseradish and spicy mustard.

  • Vegetables: A great combination of boiled vegetables is turnips, parsnips, carrots, red potatoes, and cabbage. Quarter the turnips, parsnips, potatoes, and cabbage. Cut the carrots and parsnips into thirds and then quarter them. Cook the vegetables in the remaining beef broth. If it is too salty, add more water. Simmer the vegetables for 15 to 30 minutes, until they are done. See Kerry's Vegetable Recipes section for more ideas!

  • Soda Bread: This bread is an Irish staple that uses baking soda and buttermilk, rather than yeast.

  • Another option is to cook the corned beef and vegetables in a large slow cooker for 8 to 10 hours on low, or 5 to 6 hours on high, covered with 1 cup of water.


This meal plan is simple.  A frugal tip is to grab a couple of extra packages, and stick them into the freezer to enjoy this simple meal more often.
