"I've been making this meal for more than 40 years," remarks Ruth Warner of Wheat Ridge, Colorado. "It is so easy and so delicious. It's especially good served with a salad of peaches and cottage cheese."
I serve this delicious entree each St. Patrick's Day, even though my family is Dutch, not Irish. The meat is so tender and tasty topped with a simple tangy glaze. Leftovers make excellent Reuben sandwiches.

This recipe has been a favorite in our family for more than 50 years. My kids still request it when they come to visit, and it was one of the first recipes they called long distance to ask for after they got married.—Jeri Butters, Englewood, Florida
This is a great dish to serve for St. Patrick's Day - or any time. It features corned beef, sauerkraut and other ingredients that make Reuben sandwiches so popular. It's always well received at a potluck.—Margery Bryan, Royal City, Washington
THE comic strip Maggie and Jiggs inspired me to serve this meal. Whenever Maggie asked Jiggs what he would like her to cook, he answered, "Corned beef and cabbage."
My husband liked this meal, too, and I always enjoyed making it for potluck suppers and other gatherings.

"I first tried this fuss-free way to cook traditional corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day a few years ago. Now it's a regular in my menu planning. This is terrific with Dijon mustard and crusty bread."—Karen Waters, Laurel, Maryland
"I remember my grandmother making this comforting casserole when my family visited her," writes Brenda Myers of Overland Park, Kansas. "Now that I'm married, I fix it for my husband and me as an easy evening meal that provides great leftovers for lunch."
Neither the flavor nor the texture is "mushy" when you whip up a skillet of this tongue-tingling hash. This is an all-time favorite of mine. I created it after eating a similar variation in Texas.
