Recipe for Harvest Grain Reuben Sandwich - Saint Patrick's Day Recipes

I like to serve my corned beef with cabbage with roasted potatoes and carrots, or with Steamed Potatoes with Parsley. Then use the leftover meat to make Reuben Sandwiches. Oh yeah, March is a great month!

Speaking of March, that is about the only time I’m able to find packages of corned beef at our grocery store. I’ll often buy two packages so I can freeze one of them to enjoy corned beef later in the year.

 

Ingredients for Slow-Cooked Corned Beef and Cabbage

  • lean corned beef with seasoning packet (4-6 pounds)
  • beef stock
  • dark beer, like Guinness
  • medium head of cabbage
  • medium sweet onion
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

 

Optional Homemade Seasoning Mix:

Sometimes corned beef doesn’t come with a seasoning mix. Or maybe you want a bit more seasoning to add to the dish. Here is a recipe to make your own. Be sure to use whole spices for most of this, and not the ground versions.

Homemade Seasoning Mix for Slow-Cooked Corned Beef

You may notice that this seasoning mixture is very similar to Pickling Mix that you can buy in the store. When comparing this recipe to what I had in the pantry, the two mixes were very similar. So, if you want, you may use Pickling Mix. Or make your own with the following spices (or as many of them as you have on hand or are willing to purchase.) In the end, it’ll be fine. Your corned beef will taste great.

mustard seeds, coriander seeds, bay leaves, crushed, black peppercorns, allspice berries, anise seeds, red pepper flakes, caraway seeds, whole cloves, cardamom

Instructions: Place seasoning spices in a large mortar bowl and coarsely crush with pestle. Depending on the size of your mortar and pestle, you may want to do this a little at a time. Store in a covered container to use as needed. For this recipe, you’ll want to use 2-3 tablespoons of the homemade seasoning mix.
