Leftover Corned Beef and Cabbage Pie

Corned Beef & Cabbage Pie Recipe

Corned beef and cabbage is the perfect example of a meal that is better than it’s original version when it’s reincarnated into something new.

Most suggestions I receive for leftover corned beef and cabbage is to make it into hash.  This year, I decided to make a pie, or reincarnate it into a pie.

  2. cooked corned beef

Roasted Corned Beef, Sweet Potatoes & Swiss Chard

Roast Corned Beef Recipe

St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Traditions

St. Patrick’s Day…. aaah, the “boiled meal”.  Every year I make the traditional Corned Beef, Cabbage & Potatoes.  And not knowing any other way to cook corned beef, we’ve enjoyed our festive St. Patty’s Day boiled dinner while looking forward to Reuben Sandwiches made with leftover roasted Corned Beef.

This year I wanted something different than boiled corned beef and cabbage, and with a little experimentation, here’s what my family and friends will be eating this year at my house for St. Patrick’s Day.  This was my first time roasting Swiss chard and I’m now a fan- it compliments the salty corned beef beautifully!

Bye-bye boiled dinner!

Irish King Dinner

Here are some scenes from last year’s St. Patrick’s Day and the Spilsbury’s annual Corned Beef, Cabbage & Potatoes dinner.

St Patricks Day dinner table decor

The Irish King Dinner

 

I used a mismatch selection of various shades of green tableware.  Some of the green dishes, napkins and serving dishes came from my pantry while others I selected from various stores like Pier1, Target and HomeGoods- how marvelous it was to not have to decide on one set!  Instead, I was able to select pieces from many collections.

These regal chairs sit in our Living Room and were hand-selected by my husband (who is both Irish and a Leo).  I thought they made a perfect addition to our al fresco dinner table.

 

It’s difficult to get the boiled version of corned beef & cabbage to photograph well- it’s not the most photogenic meal out there, that’s for sure.  This year’s dinner of Roasted Corned Beef, Sweet Potatoes and Swiss Chard was a supermodel compared the traditional recipe.
