Corned Beef with Brussel Sprouts, Red Potatoes, and Honey Mustard Sauce.

St. Patrick's Day Dinner.
St. Patrick’s Day Dinner.

Every year, I HAVE to have corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s day. I guess you could say I’m a little obsessed. Corned beef in December? Eh. I could take it or leave it. But on St. Patrick’s day, I feel like something is seriously wrong if I don’t sit down to a big ‘ol plate of it with cabbage and potatoes. My mom makes it every year. That’s probably where it all started.

This year, I wanted to make corned beef and cabbage with a little twist. Instead of making it the traditional way with the big cabbage leaves, carrots, potatoes, and corned beef all in one pot, I decided to swap the cabbage for baby cabbage, or brussel sprouts. I cooked our corned beef in the oven with nothing but the little spice packet it came with for 4 ½ hours.

For the red potatoes, I used McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning, kosher salt, and olive oil.SONY DSC

Don’t knock it ’til you try it. 😉

To top the corned beef, I made a homemade honey mustard sauce.SONY DSC
Even though I still love the traditional way of making corned beef and cabbage and eating it with plain yellow mustard, this was definitely a hit. Grey suggested trying the corned beef with a little fig spread that we had leftover from our Sunday afternoon picnic. People. It. Was. Delicious. Next year, I might swap our homemade honey mustard with some sort of fig sauce because it worked.

Fig sauce? On corned beef? That is why I love that man.

Wear green, and have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
