Corned Beef and Cabbage with Horseradish Cream

What’s St. Patrick’s Day without Corned Beef and Cabbage!

A simple way to prepare this classic Irish dish. Top it with horseradish cream or mustard and serve it with a side of creamy cauliflower puree as a low carb alternative to potatoes. Keep in mind the meat shrinks down to almost 1 lb when cooked.
