If you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day you are going to love this recipe of Corned Beef with horseradish cream sauce. I had lots of fun preparing this easy, no fuss meal. And I must admit, I have not used my Le Creuset Dutch oven pan in a while, and the calling was right there for me.
Yes, it may take a couple of hours of cooking, however the stove does it all. The only thing you have to do is remember that you have a pot on the stove.
I decided to cook the vegetables after the corned beef was done. Only 20 minutes and I was able to pull out a couple of potatoes that were cooking faster.
I could not get enough of the horseradish cream sauce. If you have left over corned beef this Saturday night, you can always make corned beef ash with an egg for Sunday brunch. At least that was my intention, however no left overs… Next time.
Have a great celebration!
Loads of Love,
CORNED BEEF WITH HORSERADISH CREAM SAUCE
1 3 pounds corned beef brisket
4 bay leaves
1 12 ounces bottle Guinness draught beer
1 onion, peeled and halved
6 carrots, peeled and halved
1 cabbage, quartered and cored
6 boiling potatoes scrubbed
Salt and pepper
½ cup sour cream
3-4 tablespoons cream style horseradish
1 scallion, finely sliced
In a small bowl mix together the sour cream, the horseradish and the scallions. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours prior to serving.
Put the corned beef in a Dutch oven. Pour the beer and enough water to cover the meat. Add the bay leaves.
Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and skim the foam from the surface of the water. Cover and simmer for about 2 ½ hours, or until the corned beef is tender.
Remove from the liquid, wrap in foil and set aside.
Add the potatoes, cabbage, onion and carrots to the pot, cover and cook over a gentle boiling simmer for 20 minutes, or until tender.
Return the corned beef to the pot to warm up, 3 to 4 minutes.
Cut the meat across grain and arrange on plate with the vegetables and a little of the cooking juice.
Serve with the horseradish cream.
