When you think of St Patrick’s Day, I am pretty sure the first thing on your mind is not the grill or smoker on the back “PADDY-O” (See what I did there….). Maybe I think a little differently than most, but I immediately head out back and fire up my smoker and grab an ice cold green beer. Nothing goes together better than a hunk of salty smoked beef and a green “Barley Pop”. Throw in some smoky cabbage oozing with Stubb’s butter and you are all set for the St. Patty’s day parade.
LEFTOVERS could be the best part of this dish. This is even better the next day when you thinly slice (against the grain) the corned beef and add to some rye bread and spicy mustard. Toss on a few pieces of Swiss cheese and we are in heaven. Or, we could chop it up and add to some potatoes, herbs and top with a few eggs and we have the perfect hash. We could also add it to your favorite crockpot along with some sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing and a hunk of cream cheese. You now have a great Reuben dip for GAMEDAY. The options are endless for smoked corned beef. Now get out on your PADDY-O and get cookin’.
