Enjoy this complete CORNED BEEF DINNER throughout the year!

Nowadays it seems like people only search for how to make corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day. If you’re here looking for your Paddy’s Day fix, get to it.

We’re hoping this post inspires you to remember corned beef throughout the year. After all, there’s something so pleasing about one-pot dinner recipes that require minimal effort to feed a crowd.

Here’s why this easy CORNED BEEF DINNER works:

Ingredients for Corned Beef Dinner

THE CORNED BEEF

Corned beef is a piece of beef brisket that has been cured in salt brine. To boost the flavours, we added pickling spices. This along with the brine also helps to tenderize the meat.

Juicy, sliced corned beef

Corned beef is usually cooked slowly on a low heat to further yield a more tender finished serving of the beef. You should do the same when you make this at home.

Create a spice bouquet garnis

THE BOUQUET GARNI

The first part of this recipe involves cooking the corned beef slowly in apple cider, beer and water. To add more flavour, we also included a bouquet garni to the pot. This simple, homemade sachet of spices is created by tying up mustard seed, peppercorns, coriander and cloves in a square of cheesecloth. Having these spices infuse the broth and meat this way is less messy than having the spices floating loosely in the pot.

The vegetables added later to the pot

VEGETABLE SIDES

The complete meal is made by adding carrots, potatoes, pearl onions, and cabbage to the slowly simmering pot for the second two hours of cooking. The vegetables become perfectly tender. Then, after a quick chop and toss with butter and parsley, voila – instant veggie side dish. It’s all so easy!

Creamy horseradish is the perfect accompaniment for the corned beef

CREAMY HORSERADISH

We were in the middle of shooting this story when two of my visiting cousins, Darlene and Linda asked: “Are you serving it with a creamy horseradish sauce?” I’d never heard of such a thing. Thankfully, they offered to guide me as we made this perfect condiment in record time. Click HERE to watch our 1-minute tutorial on how to make it. Now I wouldn’t serve this meal without it.

Although we purposely created this story as a complete meal idea, I can’t miss the chance to suggest a few things to go with it. Nothing complicated – serve it with this CREAMY COLESLAW and OMA’S APPLE CAKE for dessert.
