The Kitchn: 10 ways to enjoy corned beef this St. Patrick's Day
Corned beef might not be a truly traditional meal when it comes to St. Patrick's Day celebrations, but that doesn't mean we love it any less. And while corned beef and cabbage is the go-to main when this festive holiday rolls around, it's just the beginning of all the wonderful ways to get this hearty meat on the table. Here are 10 more ways to get your fill of corned beef this St. Patrick's Day.
1. As hash topped with eggs
Start your St. Patrick's Day celebration at the breakfast table. Mixed with chunks of cabbage, starchy potatoes, and pepper, corned beef is the star of this hearty hash that's begging for a runny yolk.
2. On a breakfast sandwich
Why wait until dinner to get your fill of corned beef? You already know it gets the morning seal of approval (see above!), so why not layer several slices of tender meat onto your favorite breakfast sandwich?
3. Stuffed into a baked potato
With inspiration from a classic Reuben sandwich, grab some sliced corned beef, tangy kraut, pickles and dressing to turn a basic baked potato into a festive dinner.
4. Stirred into soup
From cabbage soup to creamy potato chowder, shredded slices or thick chunks of corned beef are a welcome addition to just about any pot of soup.
