Mock Corned Beef and Cabbage DinnerWhile the store shelves are just barren, we have to get what we can and work with it, even if it means changing a few things. Today being Saint Patrick's Day, I went to the grocery store to get everything for my corn beef and cabbage dinner. Well, much to my surprise, there was not a package of corned beef in the store. I was crushed! So I just went to the deli department and ordered a pound of thick sliced red corned beef. And worked it out from there, with a bit of the Luck of the Irish upon me!



  • 6 thick sliced deli cut red corned beef
  • 1 small cabbage, thickly cut
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 2 sweet onions, quartered
  • 1 lb carrots, cut in chunks
  • 1 small turnip, cut up in small pieces
  • 4 whole white potatoes, peeled, cut in quarters
  • 1 small cabbage, sliced thickly
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Seasonings; black pepper, minced garlic, parsley, thyme, rosemary, basil,
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 carton (32oz) chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp vinegar or I used a Tbsp of Greek salad dressing
chopped cabbage


  1. Using a large covered skillet. Prep all your vegetables. Have everything ready, plus your spices.
  2. Start with potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, (everything except the meat and cabbage). All in the skillet. Turn heat on high! When it starts to sizzle but not burn, pour 1/2 the chicken broth over the vegetables, stir and cover. Turn heat down to medium. For 15 minutes. Add more broth as needed. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are a bit tender.

  4. Then lay across the 6 slices of meat and then put all the cabbage on top spreading it evenly over. Cover for about 10-15 minutes or until tender.
  5. corned beef strips added to pan
  6. Turn heat off. Keep covered. Open the can of beets.

  8. Serve in a wide deep bowl, getting a little of everything. Put some beets on the side! I was very surprised by the good flavor and the tender meat!
