Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day dinner! My amazing friend Erin loves everything Irish and made this delicious dinner for her family. Her family loved it and wanted more and more. She said it takes awhile to make but it is so worth the wait. Plus it will make your home smell tasty!
This is great to make on St. Patrick’s Day to have the Luck of the Irish! I love corned beef and cabbage so I would make this any time of the year. Good thing my husband loves it too!
