Corned Beef and Cabbage for Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day March 17th is one of if not the most widely celebrated Saint's day in the world. We are just a tiny bit Irish on my Father's side and my Mother loved to cook so we always had corned beef and cabbage on Saint Patrick's Day.

Corned Beef Brisket with Cabbage

3 lb. corned beef brisket
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 cup maple-flavored or pancake syrup
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1 Tbsp. KRAFT Prepared Horseradish
1 head cabbage, cut into wedges

PLACE meat in large saucepan; top with onions, garlic and bay leaves. Add enough water to cover all ingredients; cover with lid. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 1 hour. Drain, reserving meat in pan. Remove and discard bay leaves.

ADD enough fresh water to saucepan to cover meat; cover with lid. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 2 to 3 hours or until meat is tender.

HEAT oven to 350ºF. Remove meat from pan, reserving liquid in pan; place meat in shallow baking pan. Mix syrup, mustard and horseradish; spoon half over meat. Reserve remaining syrup mixture for brushing onto cooked meat.

BAKE 20 min., brushing frequently with remaining syrup mixture. Meanwhile, add cabbage to reserved liquid in saucepan; cook 8 to 10 min. or until tender.

PLACE meat on platter; drizzle with pan drippings. Serve with cabbage.

I also cook red potatoes as a side dish with this.

This is a quick and easy dessert I make quite often.

Pistachio Pudding

2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) JELL-O Pistachio Flavor Instant Pudding
Cold Milk
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

Prepare pudding as directed on package
Stir 1 cup Cool Whip into pudding mixture
To really green it up add a few drops of food coloring
Pour into small serving bowls top with Cool Whip
You can add a few green sprinkles on top if you like :)

Cupcakes are super easy you can add green food coloring to a white cake mix and white frosting then top with green sprinkles.
