Corned beef recipes for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations don’t always require cabbage with them. It’s why I like to mix it up a bit, find a bit of both. Let’s face it, the main star of corned beef and cabbage is always corned beef, right? However, I didn’t totally leave out a couple of awesome finds that have both. I’m all about diversity in life, and in food!

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
Now, listen. St. Patrick’s Day is on a Friday this year. What’s that mean? You aren’t going to want to sit around waiting for your corned beef to cook. I get it. Totally understand. After work, the last thing you want is to hang out, cooking your corned beef. If you happen to attend the parade in big NYC, you aren’t going to feel much like waiting around for corned beef to cook either, and will probably eat it on the following day. You know, after the hangover subsides.

Corned Beef with Cabbage
If you’re not into going too off the rails with your yearly tradition of corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day, there isn’t anything wrong with that kind of thing. Trust me. Our family rarely deviates from the plan on St. Patrick’s Day. Even with my mother in the hospital last year, we celebrated with our standard corned beef and cabbage, and then went to visit her. I still say she orchestrated her heart attack and stroke to happen right before St. Patrick’s Day, because she just didn’t want to have corned beef and cabbage.
She’s very dramatic.
I kid. I joke, because if I don’t, I still cry about what happened last year in February. However, this is about keeping it real on St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s a kick-ass recipe everyone can enjoy: Corned Beef with Cabbage from Epicurious.com. I’d have to say, it looks pretty good to me!
