Corned Beef and Cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day – GEEK EATS Recipe

Jump to recipe

On March 17, 2023 my grandparents were married. Growing up, I didn’t realize the significance of this. It seemed like just a fun day with shamrocks, wearing green, eating corned beef and cabbage, and also my grandparents’ anniversary. As I grew older and learned more about the family history, I learned that there was a much deeper connection in the family to Ireland beyond just a fun day of green once a year. It turned out that there is a lot of Irish in my lineage. Go up one side of the family and there is a connection with a lord in County Cork. There was also an Irish steamship line in the family (with one ship still existing today the last I researched). It also turned out that the wedding in 1951 pulled from the Irish heritage and even had green and white as the colors.

While Grandma and Grandpa have both passed along, I’m very thankful for a book that was compiled by Grandpa that shares the family history. Every St. Patrick’s Day I also dress in my best green outfit and cook corned beef and cabbage and remember my grandparents and the family story. I don’t have a specific recipe I use each year for the corned beef and cabbage as I like to mix things up. Today, I’m sharing with you the recipe I am using this year. This is a baked corned beef and cabbage. Sometimes I do slow cooker, others instant pot. Whatever way I cook my corned beef and cabbage, there are always potatoes, carrots, cabbage, and onions included as well. Without further ado, here is this year’s recipe for corned beef and cabbage.
