A simple and tasty corned beef and cabbage soup!

Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and with the chilly weather I figured it was the perfect time to make a nice big pot of corned beef and cabbage soup! This is a super simple soup that relies on the flavor of the corned beef which is slowly braised until it’s melt in your mouth tender and oh so good! After the beef I load this soup up with veggies including the standard onions, carrots and celery in addition to plenty of cabbage, which goes so well with the corned beef. I like to fill out this stew with potatoes or cauliflower, celeriac or even barley making for one hearty comforting meal! This Saint Patrick’s Day curl up with a bowl of corned beef and cabbage soup!
