It’s that time again! Every year we celebrate St. Patrick’s day the same! Corned beef and cabbage with a side of Irish nachos!
I look forward to this meal all year long because I LOVE corned beef! I can remember having this every year as a kid too! My gramps would come over (miss you gramps) and we would enjoy that tender delicious meat with an abundance of cabbage and potatoes. It was heaven!
Over the last few years I have taken my mom’s recipe and tweaked it, just a little. I find that by cooking the beef in a slow cooker it comes out more tender than if you did it on top of the stove in a pot. I for 2 cans of beer in and a little water and beef broth and done. This year I wanted to try something different. I wanted to try a different version of corned beef and cabbage. So, I thought how could I incorporate the beef and cabbage into one thing, besides a sand which? Hmmmmm…. Oh, I love pot stickers and that would keep the beef and cabbage together, then boom, yumminess! It worked out fabulous! They were sooooo good! They were pretty easy too! My only suggestion would be, if you are using left over corned beef don’t use left over cabbage Grate fresh cabbage because you don’t want it to be too soggy and mushy. I also saved mine with horseradish and soy sauce and both were delicious compliments.
2 cups of shredded corned beef
3 tbsp olive oil
half a head of red cabbage, shredded
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 package of wonton wrappers
In a pan sauté garlic, onion and cabbage with olive oil. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Mix in shredded corned beef.
To make pot stickers, place about 1 tablespoon of the cabbage and corned beef mixture in the center of the wonton wrapper. Wet each side of the wonton and press the sides together to seal shut (you can also use a for to press the sides together). They should look like small triangles.
Steam pot stickers in a stove top steamer. Or you can boil them for 3 minutes in salted water, But if you boil them, be sure to pat them dry. If you are steaming, steam them for 3 minutes.
Then place the pot stickers in a heated skillet that has been sprayed with non stick spray (spray after each batch). Cook on both sides on medium heat until lightly golden brown.
Be sure to work in batches because you don’t want to over crowd the pan and they will stick to each other if they are too close.
Serve with horseradish or soy sauce!
