Corned Beef Potato Dinner
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. -Brooke Staley Mary Esther, Florida
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 1 pound red potatoes, cut into small wedges

I'm normally not a fan of any corned beef, yet I tried this meal for St. Patty's 2008 and loved it. It was so easy and quick. The only thing I'd change would be to reduce the vinegar from 1/3 to 1/4 cup.
