How to make Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup.
This soup is easy to make. Grab a Dutch Oven or any heavy pot of your choice and heat about 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a medium-high temperature pan. When that gets how add some carrots, celery and some onion. Let that saute for a few minutes.
Saute your vegetables
While the veggies are cooking I usually would be chopping up the corned beef. You can chop it into chunks or into strips if you prefer.
Add Corned Beef
After about 5 to 7 minutes of sauteeing the veggies and the corned beef to the pot and stir to combine. Let the corned beef and veggies cook for about 3 minutes to extract some of that corned beef flavor.
Add Stock and Water
At this point, I add my stock to the pot. In this recipe, I used corned beef stock that I reserved from cooking the corned beef, chicken stock, and some water. If you don’t have your leftover stick from cooking your corned beef thats ok just replace the corned beef stock with chicken stock. Using the corned beef stock is just another layer of good flavor. You can remember to save the stock the next time you cook corned beef.
Add Seasonings and Potatoes
Add your seasonings and potatoes. In this recipe, I used some Italian seasoning which came out great. Now add your potatoes and let the soup come to a boil and then turn the heat to MEDIUM and let the potatoes simmer for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Uncover the pot and add your cabbage to the soup. Let the soup simmer uncovered for about another 10 minutes and you are ready to enjoy.
