Easy Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe with Wine for St. Patrick's Day
Let's cook and chat, while making this traditional St. Patrick's Day dish together, but with a twist! Corned Beef & Cabbage is a go-to recipe for St. Patty's Day, but where you usually see this beef roast soaked in beer, we decided we'd give our Estate Meritage a try.
This wine is chalk full of flavors, from spice to vanilla, a little sweet and a little savory, 100% delicious! You can find this wine and many others on our website:
When you cook it's fun not to take life too seriously, so Jennifer and I are here to help you have fun in the kitchen, sipping great wine, and having a blast while we make tasty dishes for all to enjoy. So, with out further ado, let's get cookin'!
First off, we have to gather our ingredients.
1 4 lb Corned Beef Roast (with seasoning packet)
1/2c - 1cup Clos LaChance Estate Meritage (or similar medium to bold red wine)
3-4 cups water (enough to submerge the roast and other veggies)
5 stalks celery (cut into thick 1" chunks with ends trimmed off)
1 lg. onion (peeled and cut into wedges, like cutting up an apple)
4 lg. carrots (rinsed and peeled, cut into 1" chunks)
4-5 russet potatoes (rinsed and peeled or unpeeled for more texture and flavor, cut into cubes)
1 reg. potato (rinsed and peeled or unpeeled for more texture and flavor, cut into cubes)
1 head of cabbage cut into 1" thick wedges
Take the Corned Beef out of the package and place into the Dutch Oven. Sprinkle the seasoning on top. Add Estate Meritage wine and water to the pot. Chop celery and onion and put them into the pot. Set temperature on stove to medium-high (enough to make a simmer), and cook, covered, for 3 hours. While still cooking, at the 3 hour mark, cut up carrots, potatoes, and cabbage, and add them into the pot. Cover, and continue cooking for an additional 45 minutes to an hour, until the meet and veggies are fork tender. If you aren't sure of the temperature, you can use a meat thermometer to ensure that it is 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Plate your cooked Corned Beef and Cabbage on a serving platter, pour another glass of Clos LaChance Meritage and enjoy your St. Patty's Day with friends and family and a delicious meal!
