Irish Tacos

Posted on March 16 2019

We’ve got an unusual twist on your typical corned beef and cabbage recipe to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (or for any reason!). This dish takes classic Reuben sandwich ingredients and twists them into taco form!

You’ll need plenty of corned beef for this recipe, and if you’re planning ahead, we recommend making our Sous Vide Corned Beef from scratch. You can always use store-bought corned beef instead, it just won’t be quite as tasty!

To bring in the other elements of a Reuben sandwich, we made a Thousand Island dressing-based sauce for the slaw. The slaw is made from chopped cabbage and a little sauerkraut to get that classic tang you’ve come to expect from the Irish sandwich.

We recommend using flour tortillas because they’re a little closer to the bread of a sandwich, but you can absolutely use corn tortillas if that’s your jam.

Serve with your favorite Irish stout and you’ve got a full-blown St. Patrick’s Day Feast on your hands.
