Corned beef and cabbage is a staple for many St. Patrick’s Day dinner tables . But, if I’m being completely honest, I think it’s pretty boring. I decided to do something different this year with a crazy twist on this traditional dish. Corned beef and cabbage tacos with Guinness horseradish cream sauce. The sauce really accents the flavors in the corned beef. I am not kidding you, this sauce is amazing. I could put it anything.
Since I have no one to feed in my apartment, I brought the tacos over to my parents’ place for lunch and my dad loved them. Then, they were passed on to my sister and brother-in-law who ate them for dinner tonight. My sister just texted me, “de-lish,” and that means a lot because she’s a fairly picky eater. So I guess they’ve passed the family taste test.
Don’t forget dessert! Make some Lucky Charms cookies to go with your corned beef tacos.
These tacos are the perfect way to use up your left over corned beef, but it’s also a great way to serve it in the first place. The choice is yours. Either way, you’ll need cooked corned beef for the tacos. I didn’t have leftovers, so I picked one up at the grocery store and cooked it in a mixture of Guinness, water (1 can Guinness + 1 quart water), and the spice packet. I followed the directions, and then chopped it up. You could really prepare the corned beef using any method though – boiling, roasting, slow cooking.
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup light mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup Guinness
- 3 teaspoons fresh horseradish
- 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups cooked, chopped corned beef, heated
- 1 package coleslaw mix

To prepare the sauce:
- In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, Guinness, horseradish, mustard, vinegar and salt & pepper.
To assemble the tacos:
