Guyz, are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day, or are you READY for St. Patrick’s Day?!
…great me either.
Seeing as I’m not much a beer fan anyway, SPD doesn’t really do much for me….other than da FOOD.
But come on, are you really that surprised?
Maybe I’m jumping the gun a little early, but I LOVE corned beef and cabbage. Growing up, my mom would make a boiled dinner every year, full of carrots, cabbage, taters, and salty McSalterson corned beef.
With everything baptized in a pool of mustard. Like seriously, I use so much mustard, it’s more part of the meal rather than a condiment.
Seeing as I only have this meal once a year, I’ll take my temporary hypertensive state with a grain of salt. 😉
and roughly a gallon or two of water.
That’s why I used these low-carb pita breads for this St. Patty’s Day-inspired sammich, since they are also low in sodium, since the corned beef already has plenty of that to go around, but don’t let me hinder your pita game. I was thinking the sweet onion would be awesome for these too, or any of the 100 (literally) products that Toufayan has to offer.
Put those St. Patrick’s Day leftovers to work! …like literally make this corned beef sandwich, pack it with some grapes, and maybe some carrot sticks for good measure and LB (that’s lunch box) that ish to the office! I’ll be rehydrating with a green beverage of sorts (Monday recipe spoiler!) 😀
Money-Saving Tips for this Corned Beef Sandwich:
- Use the deli. Utilizing leftovers is definitely a plus, but if you don’t have any on hand, use the deli. You can get just the amount of corned beef and cheese you need which keeps costs low.
- Opt for store-brand. I promise that store-brand mustard is just as good as name-brand, and is usually a little bit cheaper.
