                 St. Patrick's Day Recipes

One Irish saying goes, Ní geal an gáite ach san aít a mbíonnan biadh! or "Laughter is gayest where the food is best!" But the day's celebration needn't include unhealthy sugars and starchy potatoes!

Corned Beef and Cabbage
Corned Beef and Cabbage
  • 5 pound corned beef brisket (preferably bottom round)
  • 1/2 cup Michelob Ultra low carb Beer
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into thirds
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 medium head of cabbage
  • 1 Tablespoon Spicy Brown Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Splenda
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Place corned beef in Dutch oven. Add Michelob Ultra and enough water to barely cover. Add onions, carrots, garlic, and seasonings.

Cover and simmer (do not boil) about 1 hour per pound of meat, or until fork tender. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut cabbage into eight wedges. When meat is tender, remove from liquid, and add cabbage wedges to the Dutch oven. Cook cabbage for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, place corned beef brisket in shallow roasting pan. Spread top of meat with prepared mustard and molasses; Sprinkle with Splenda and cloves. Roast 20 minutes.

To carve corned beef, cut across the grain, in thick slices. If you prefer your meat deli style, chill meat overnight in refrigerator to set juices and then carve in thin slices. Place on platter with cabbage wedges and serve. Discard juices, seasonings, carrots, and onion.

Serves 6 — 4.4 grams of carbohydrate per serving. Want a little carrot? Assuming you eat and don't discard the carrot, add an additional 1.5 carb grams per serving. This recipe can also accommodate a bit of diced turnip in place of traditional potatoes. Add carb grams accordingly for changes.

Sautéed Turnips with Sweet Butter

Sautéed Turnips with Sweet Butter
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Diabetisweet
  • 1 pound white turnips, peeled, halved, and cut into wedges (about 1/2" wide at their widest)
  • Salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Melt the butter and Diabetisweet in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until the butter mixture begins to color slightly. Add the turnips, salt lightly, and toss to coat. Cook over medium heat, tossing occasionally, for 10 minutes until lightly browned.

Add the water, raise the heat to medium-high, and cook, tossing until the turnips are tender and the water has evaporated, coating the turnips with a light glaze, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper and serve hot.

Makes 6 servings — 5.5 grams of carbohydrate per serving.
