Easy Dinner Recipes: Corned Beef with Potatoes and Cabbage

This is an easy dinner recipe for an wonderful Irish meal using a slow cooker rather than the traditional boiling method, making it simpler to drop and go, especially since St. Patrick’s Day is on a Monday this year.

2 ½ Pounds medium new potatoes cut in half (about 8)
2 Cups baby carrots
1 Cup Frozen small whole onions thawed
1 Corned beef brisket about 3-31/2 pounds
½ Cup water
1 Seasoning packet from beef package
1 head of cabbage

Mix veggies (except for the cabbage) in the bottom of the slow cooker.

Rinse corned beef and place on top of the veggies, followed by the seasoning packet and water.

Divide the head of cabbage into 6 sections and place on the top of the beef.

Cover and cook on low for about 8 to 9 hours until the beef and veggies are tender and you are good to go.

Luck of the Irish to you!


Easy Dinner Recipes: Peanut Beef Noodles

This easy dinner recipe makes a full meal without tons of ingredients which is always a favorite combination for me.


  • 1 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak cut into this strips
  • 1 Tbsp. cooking oil
  • 2 14-oz. cans reduced sodium beef broth
  • 1/3 cup bottled peanut sauce (check the Asian section of your store)
  • 1-1/2 cups or about 3 oz. medium egg noodles
  • 2 cups broccoli florets


1. In Dutch oven, brown the beef strips in hot oil over medium-high heat. Add beef broth and peanut sauce; bring to boiling.

2. Stir in noodles and reduce the heat. Simmer uncovered, 4 minutes, stirring occasionally to separate noodles. Add broccoli; return to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer again uncovered, for 3 to 4 minutes more or just until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.

3. Serve it up in bowls and garnish with green onions if wanted. My kids like to skip this little extra.
