Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup

Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup
Saint Patrick's Day is right around the corner and with the chilly weather I figured it was the perfect time to make a nice big pot of corned beef and cabbage soup! This is a super simple soup that relies on the flavour of the corned beef which is slowly braised until it's melt in your mouth tender and oh so good! After the beef I load this soup up with veggies including the standard onions, carrots and celery in addition to plenty of cabbage, which goes so well with the corned beef. I like to fill out this stew with potatoes or cauliflower, celeriac or even barley making for one hearty comforting meal! This Saint Patrick's Day curl up with a bowl of corned beef and cabbage soup!

Oops....You forgot to add in the corned beef....

This soup looks so good. Would it really mess up the soup to use Top quality corned beef from the deli? Where I live it is about 80 mile round trip to a reliable source of raw corned beef.

Kimberly Heath said...

Kevin, I asked about using top quality deli corned beef, i.e., Boars head in place of raw. Would you please answer. Thanks.

Kevin Lynch said...

nonna23: You can use deli corned beef and the cook time would be reduced to until the veggies are tender.

nonna23 said...

Kevin, can this soup be frozen and then eaten later?
