Default St Patricks Day!

My family and I love Corned Beef and cabbage for St. Patricks day. Is Corned Beef ok to eat?

Not on IP so I don't know the answer but this thread may answer your question(s).

After some more searching, it seems to be okay/on plan in small portions since it is higher in fat compared to other OP meats. Be sure to trim off ALL of the fat, read the ingredients in the brine if you are using it since some have sugar and other stuff. Also read some suggestions to make mock potatoes using cauliflower to go with the corned beef, just an idea.

YEs you can have corned beef and I have had it before while on IP. Just make sure to trim all of the fat off of it. Also, try sauerkraut as a fun and quick cabbage substitute!

Don't sacrifice what you want the most for what you want this moment

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If it is not, you will find an excuse
