Corned beef gets a touch of sweetness with a maple syrup glaze. Even people who say they don't care for corned beef will ask for seconds when served this one. This recipe was passed down from my great-grandmother.—Gayle Macklin, Vail, Arizona

WHEN I was child, every Saturday night was Red Flannel Night. Grandpa and I wore our red flannel underwear to supper and Grandma, the cook, dressed in a long calico dress and sunbonnet. We’d eat Red Flannel Stew spooned over fluffy Southern style biscuits. Grandma learned to make the stew from earlier generations.
With its elegant flavor and lovely appearance, you'd never guess how easy it is to prepare this traditional St. Patrick's Day favorite. Thanks to the slow-cooker, it comes together effortlessly. —Susan F. Cepeda, M. Lakes, Florida
When I was a girl during the Depression, we had enough cabbages to sink a ship! This was a family favorite my mother made often.
After I was married, I served these potatoes to family and friends as a side dish to pork. I still make them for potlucks (I attend two of them a month), and everyone likes them.
I have three grown children—plus five grandchildren whom I keep supplied with frozen yogurt and cookies!
For St. Patrick's Day, I usually prepare this dish instead of the traditional corned beef dinner. This takes less time because it makes good use of the microwave...and it's very tasty.

My mother was a wonderful cook who inspired me to experiment with recipes. This unique recipe features a Dijon mustard glaze on the corned beef, and a tangy horseradish sauce with the cabbage and red potatoes. The meal receives raves every time I serve it.
The celery seed really comes through in this colorful combination of carrots, cabbage and corned beef. A woman at church shared the recipe with me. My husband and son love its subtle sweetness. —Alesah Padgett, Franklin, Georgia
