With Saint Patrick’s day right around the corner, you’ve finally got an excuse to make corned beef. Briskets are usually at bargain prices this time of year – and so are the potatoes, cabbage and carrots often served with it.
If you’re worried about the fat and calories in corned beef (hey – it’s just once a year!), look for “round” corned beef instead of the flat briskets. They’re made from leaner beef round. The only catch is that it can get pretty dry especially if you grill or bake it too long. And, yes, because there’s less fat, it’s not a flavorful…but it’s still good!
