    If you are like my family, the only time of year you eat corned beef is St. Patrick’s Day. Which is really a shame because it is so darn good! And if you are also like my family, you make WAY too much because beef briskets are usually huge!

    What to do with leftover corned beef?

    Most people just reheat or make a delicious corned beef sandwich, but you can also make Leftover Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup!

    This recipe transforms corned beef into a colorful and hearty meal packed with vegetables like parsnips, carrots and tomatoes.

    While the recipe calls for one pound of corned beef, you can use anything from 1/2 pound to 2 pounds, it just depends on what you have on hand and how meaty you prefer your soup. You can even use your previously cooked carrots, potatoes and cabbage!

    However, I’m not a huge fan of re-cooked vegetables and like them to have a little snap, so I like to start with fresh veggies.

    While my Leftover Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup doesn’t use potatoes, feel free to add fresh potatoes along with the first round of veggies or leftover potatoes at the very end to reheat.

    I merged my corned beef soup with a beef and barley recipe that I love. Barley is one of those ancient grains that is so underutilized, but tastes great, has a fabulous texture and is so good for you.

    The health benefits of barley include being high in fiber, thus aiding in weight regulation, digestion and blood sugar levels and also high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

    And of course my brisket is is Certified Angus Beef® brand. You heard it before and you’ll hear it again, it is my brand of choice for all my beef. I cure my own beef brisket, so I am looking for plain beef brisket.

    By looking for the Certified Angus Beef® brand logo, I am guaranteed quality meat, passing 10 specifications in three areas: marbling and maturity, consistent sizing and tenderness and quality appearance. It is a no brainer!

    Tools for making Corned Beef Soup:

    Dutch Oven– every kitchen should have one! They are heavy. They are expensive. They are worth it!

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!
