corned beef


C
orned beef and cabbage time again. In fact I like corned beef so much I have even made it other times as well.





Typically we skip over the plates of roots, cabbage and beef and go straight to crackin' out the rye bread and piling on the sandwiches.

A little steamed cabbage a small pile of corned beef and spicy mustard du jour. We are using Plochmans today and it has a nice rich mustardy flavor that complements the sandwich perfectly.




One sandwich after another like a sandwich eating contest.



I eat three usually and by the third one they are pretty much thrown together.



All washed down with a fresh home brewed Blonde Ale, a little cloudy, a little strong and way too good. I love being "Irish" this time of year!

Guess what's in my crockpot as I type this? Yep! Corned Beef and cabbage!

That sandwich looks excellent! Perfect with the Blond Ale.

I'm a fan of yellow mustard! We always seem to have 4 types of mustard floating around our fridge ;)

Ale looks good--cloudy, but those are often the best. What other kinds did you make?

healthydelicious said...

yummy! I love corned beef with lots of spicy mustard. That beers looks great too!

Kitt said...

Oh yeah. That's the best part of the "holiday," that corned beef.

I like to make it just for the hash that follows.

Marjie said...

I love corned beef; sadly, my 100% Irish dearly beloved does not. Thus, we forego it.

Mandi said...

Corned beef cant get much better than this! And the Ale is the perfect partner!

pinknest said...

Dawn said...

ha ha we do that too, go right for the sandwiches, I mean that is the best part right? but we have to put some of my special sauerkraut relish on there...yes.!

Anette said...

I once met a bad corned beef, and haven't fancied it since. But I must say, the one in your Sandwich, looks mighty moist and colorful, if I just got one of those stuck in my hand, I would probably enjoy it very much!
(The phrase "corned beef" has in our house got translated to "can't breath" as in the feeling you get when you get a bit "over crowded" and need som air. do you have any "local" sayings in your house?)

Patty Gironda said...

I just bought a brisket-making my mothers recipe for corned beef-but I substitute Gudelsheim pickles from Germany for the cabbage! yummy!

Love cloudy beers!

doggybloggy said...

donna: dont you know it.....

pinknest: its cause we're all Irish this week.....

dawn: "special sauerkraut relish" and what is this magical stuff?

anette: we do have some sayings - give me a bit and I will try and remember them..

patty: imported pickles....wow I am going to see if I can find this Gudelsheim pickle from Germany

I don't know why I forget about rye every now and then. It really is the best for corned beef. I usually have to search for it - that's probably why.

doggybloggy said...

duo: very ready.....

belle: the sandwich is the only way I fly when I am on the corned beef plane

Mo Diva said...

doggybloggy said...

michelle: yummy yummy yummy I got love in my tummy

beth: not a huge rueben fan (its the cole slaw) but I will make one for you

Goat Yoda said...

Christo! you are an evil, evil man! Piled high, luscious slices of moist corned beef, mustard and rye bread- I am a Reuben fan, so I MUST have kraut and swiss too! Oh god, another food-gasm!

So, did you corn this yourself, or did you buy it? (I was too busy looking at your food-porn to see if you said so or not!) I have never corned any myself, but I am thinking of it here- we still have lots of farm raised, grass fed beef in the freezer, so it is a possibility.

BTW> it looks like we are planning the goat roast/farm field day for Memorial Day weekend or there abouts- we have a smoker on tap. and I'm thinking of a variety of goat dishes- plus my goat cheese shortbread- then there's the beer......and my friend at Spinning Spider Creamery has been notified you'll be visiting, so she'll be at the ready with a large selection of her artisanal goat cheeses- bring your video equipment and get ready for an experience you've never had before. Dude.......

Holly said...

I was not going to make corned beef this year but, I just changed my mind. I want one of those sandwhiches right now.

doggybloggy said...

goat yoda: Tease, tease, tease...fire off an email and we will be there

holly: I have to make it...

oneshotbeyond said...

I wish I would have thought ahead to make something like this today. Looks outstanding.
