“My family loves corned beef and cabbage, so I take advantage of the sales on both items around St. Patrick's day. I buy extra corned beef when it goes on sale, so we can enjoy it over the next couple of months rather than just on St. Patrick's Day. When I make Corned Beef and Cabbage, I always end up with leftover corned beef. I often use the leftovers to make Corned Beef and Cabbage Casserole, but this time I decided to go a slightly lower calorie route and make Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup. I use 6 cups of liquid to make this soup, but to make it more flavorful, and reduce waste, I use all of the leftover dripping from cooking the corned beef to make up some of that 6 cups. I also add any leftover gravy to add even more flavor. I pour the leftover drippings and any leftover gravy into a large Pyrex measuring cup, then I add enough beef broth to bring it to 6 cups of liquid. The leftover corned beef will still have quite a bit of the original spice blend on it and the drippings will include spices, so there is no need to add additional spices to the broth.”
