Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Soup Swappers.We group together on the third Saturday of the month to share soup or stew recipes on a common topic. A member hosts each month to suggest what we make.

This month, Wendy of a Day in the Life on the Farm has chosen Soups with leftovers as our theme.

Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup

I have chosen corned beef with cabbage soup. Usually I will use up all my corned beef making Reuben sandwiches. I do love those!

But occasionally I like something different and this fills the bill nicely. It can be a perfect soup around March with St. Patrick’s day.

Or if you happen to have canned corned beef it is great any time of year.

Since the corned beef is already cooked, be sure to add it at the end of cooking time to make sure it doesn’t fall apart too much. It just needs to rewarm. And chunks of meat are always obviously preferred over meat that tries to disappear in broth.

Serve this soup with grilled cheese made with Swiss cheese for something perfectly suited for each other.
