Lucky Corn Beef and Cabbage-Soda Bread
Since St. Patrick’s Day is approaching, I’ve been starting to think about vegan versions of some of the classic dinner menus that are being prepared. A veganized version of corned beef and cabbage is an obvious choice as my first recipe.
My main dish, Lucky Corn Beef, and Cabbage was a huge hit, and I plan to make it again soon. I’m not a big fan of packaged fake meats–they’re only slightly healthier than their meaty counterparts, in my opinion–so I try to keep them to a minimum.
However, a “Gardein Beefless Tips” product can be useful from time to time, and it turned out to be delicious in this recipe. Any meat substitute would be delicious when cooked with fresh vegetables and topped with savory gravy. This is true comfort food on a grand scale.
What Corn Beef Used In This Recipe?
This recipe calls for Gradein Corn Beefless Tips. They’re made from all-natural ingredients. Gardein Beefless Tips is a tasty vegan alternative to traditional beef. These meat-free bites are versatile and tender, making them a great addition to any recipe. Furthermore, Gardein products are all vegan.
With The Corn Beef, What Else Should I Serve?
This Dutch oven corned beef pairs well with a hearty slice of Irish soda bread and a dollop of butter, in addition to the vegetables and sauces. Check out all of our Green Recipes For St. Patrick’s Day for more festive ideas.

Try Our Lucky Corn Beef and Cabbage Recipe:
Lucky Corn Beef and Cabbage
- 1-2 package beefless beefless tips
- 2 tsp wine white
- 2½ tbsp Braggs
- 1 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tbsp dill pickle bine, juice in the pickle jar
- 1-2 tsp onion powder
- liquid smoke dash
- 4-5 tbsp pickling spices
- olive oil
- 1 sliced red onion
- 1 head cabbage
- 6-7 red potatoes cut in half
- 5-6 cups beef vegan, made per instructions on the package
- kosher salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
- balsamic vinegar
- In an airtight container, combine the ingredients from beefless to olive oil. Shake to combine. Then place it in the fridge for 2 hours to marinate. (See note 1)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a large pot, heat the vegan beef. Toss in the potatoes, cabbage, pickling spices, red onions, and Braggs once it starts to boil till the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
- Place your pickled Gardein in a glass dish with the marinade and the remaining 1/2 red onion on top while they're boiling. (See note 2)
- Carefully remove the glass dish from the oven and pour out the marinade. Then return the dish to the oven for another 20 minutes of baking.
- Just 1 tbsp of Braggs and 2 tbsp of pickling spices.
- The Gardein and Red Onions should then be baked for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the Gardein and Onions to see when they've reached the desired level of browning.
- There is a cost to everything. Add more pepper, salt, and balsamic vinegar or malt to taste, or use a few droplets of green food coloring to make your cabbage and potatoes taste quite earthy.
Luck Of The Irish Green Soda Bread
I also wanted to share our Luck of the Irish Green Soda Bread with you. It’s a simple bread that goes great with our Lucky Corn Beef and Cabbage. I’ve included the recipe in case you ever need a quick vegan bread. We made it the traditional way, with no added ingredients, but you can dress it up with vegan butter, herbs, or other flavorings.
When compared to traditional yeast bread, this bread has a different, nutritious flavor and texture. Its name comes from the fact that, unlike yeasted doughs, it is leavened with bicarbonate of soda (or baking soda). Traditional Irish recipes only use baking soda, but I think adding a little baking powder gives the dough more lift and improves the texture. Moreover, serve this soda bread at your St. Patrick’s Day party.
Luck Of The Irish Green Soda Bread Recipe:
Luck of the Irish Green Soda Bread
- 1-2 cups all-purpose flour
- 12 oz whole-wheat flour or pastry flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- kosher salt
- 8 oz milk non-dairy
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups spinach fresh
- rolled oats sunflower seeds, or caraway seeds for sprinkling on top
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the baking soda, baking powder, flour, and salt. Set them aside.
- Blend non-dairy milk, spinach leaves, and vinegar till completely smooth using a blender.
- Drizzle all of the spinach and milk mixture into the flour, except about 1 tbsp, and stir to combine.
- Make small, 6-inch loaves by dividing the dough into three pieces. Flatten them gently so they cook evenly, and make slash "X" to the top. (See note 1)
- Bake for 30 minutes, just until lightly browned and the tops have a crusty appearance.
- Remove them from the oven and set them to cool on a wire rack. For added crunch, serve with preserves, olive oil, or vegan butter.
- Add a little extra flour to your dough balls and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Do not get to depth; merely slash the surface. If you're dusting something on top, sweep the loaves with the ones left spinach/milk mixture before dusting the toppings.
- Sunflower seeds, caraway seeds, roll oats are all good toppings to use before baking this loaf.
- You can definitely skip the spinach if you don't like it. Simply replace it with another 2 ounces of non-dairy milk.
