St Patrick’s Day Sweet & “Simply Horsey” Corned Beef

This was the best corned beef my husband and I have ever eaten. That is saying a lot considering how many exclusive places in Ohio and Chicago we have gotten ‘famous’ corned beef from.

  • 2 large carrots (peeled and sliced) OR half a bag of baby carrots

  1. This sounds and looks like it would taste good. What and where can you get “Simply Horsey” mustard?

    • Here is the link for The Mustard Man who makes “Simply Horsey” and other varieties:
      Also, the word “Simply Horsey” in the ingredients list is a hyperlink taking you to the website to order directly from them. They also have a tab entitled “Retailers” that would let you know the closest upscale grocer that would carry this product on the shelves.

  2. Now this is what I want for dinner today!!! and don’t get me started on cabbage, so many great ways to prepare, yummy!

  3. I’ve made corned beef once and I wasn’t impressed but with these flavors I bet I would be a fan.

  4. I LOVE corned beef and cabbage but for some reason, I’ve always been intimidated from actually making it!
