St. Patrick’s Day Dinner & Link Up

Yay my first official link up!

Ok so I make Corned Beef with Mashed Potatoes every year, the following morning I make hash!  Today I will share my recipe’s for all of this with you with the twists to the recipe that I grew up on!

Corned Beef


  • 2-3 lbs Corned Beef brisket
  • Dark Irish Beer (I use Guiness, those in DFW Price match the 4 pack to $4.99 at Sprouts this week 3/12)
  • 1 yellow or white onion peeled and cut in quarters
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (I used the stuff in a jar)
  • Pickling packet that comes with the  brisket
  • 1 head of Cabbage
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard


  • Place the meat in the crock pot along with the onion, garlic and pickling packet.  Cover it with beer and cook on low 9-11 hours.  ( I have used high and had it done in 8 hours)
  • Remove the meat from the crock pot and place it on a lined baking sheet.
  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees
  •  turn the crock pot  to high place the cabbage in after cutting it in quarters (remember to remove the core)  Cook it till it is tender. should be about 20 minutes.
  • Mix the mustard and brown sugar together, you can microwave it for 30-60 seconds (stir every 30 seconds) to make sure it is well incorporated.  This will make a nice glaze.
  • Cover the brisket with the glaze and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove your brisket and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing it.

Now my mashed potatoes are made with red potatoes with the skin left on, a turnip that I peel and cook with with potatoes along with minced  garlic.  I add sour cream and butter and mash them with a pastry cutter to leave them chunky as that is how Kevin likes them.  I add garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste.

Now this is Kevin’s favorite, the next morning I take the remainder of the meat and make a hash.  I use red potatoes again with the skins on and cut them up add them in a cast iron skillet with butter, garlic, salt pepper I cook this on medium till the potatoes are tender and browned then toss in the meat chopped up till it is heated through!  I like mine with a couple of eggs over easy!
