There's no better way to use up leftover St. Patrick's Day corned beef, cabbage and potatoes than to make a hearty soup. This second-time-around soup is one of my best.

"I made this for a potluck in March, for 50 people. I cooked the corned beef and cut it up, use baby carrots, had one lady dice the potatoes, and another cook and chop the cabbage. We all took our thing to the clubhouse, heated the liquid and put the vegies and meat in and let it simmer a couple of hours. It was a hit with everyone, and could not have been any easier for a large crowd. Loved it!!"

"I love this soup. I make it several times a year. It taste so much like a plate of corn beef and cabbage! To make things a little easier, I will periodically used a can of carrots and I also add a can of diced potatoes."

"Absolutely love it. It's a time saver to cook the corn beef and dice it the day before."
