St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend, so I’m updating this collection of The BEST Low-Carb Corned Beef Recipes! You’ll find tasty ideas here for cooking corned beef or using leftover corned beef; enjoy! Check Recipe Round-Ups to find more low-carb round-ups like this one.
Last week I did a round-up of Low-Carb and Low-Glycemic Irish-Inspired Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day, and I hope you’re going to try some of my favorites for the holiday this weekend. Of course corned beef is the star of the St. Patrick’s Day dinner for most people, so today I’m updating this collection of The BEST Low-Carb Corned Beef Recipes to give you tips for cooking corned beef and plenty of options for using leftover corned beef if you’re lucky enough to get some!
For years I’ve loved this time of year because in the U. S. corned beef and cabbage go on sale and I love them both, never mind that the way Americans cook them together isn’t really close to what Irish people usually eat. For years I used to make Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage for my slightly-Irish dad for St. Patrick’s day (along with Whole Wheat Brown Irish Soda Bread, which is most definitely not low-carb, but my dad wanted it every year!)
When I joined the Instant Pot craze, I started using the Instant Pot to make Pressure Cooker Corned Beef, and I’m pretty sold on that method! And for the last few years I’ve used my leftover corned beef to make Leftover Corned Beef Low-Carb Reuben Bake, and that’s a delicious casserole, even if you have to buy deli corned beef to make it.
Since I’m such a huge corned beef fan, I love finding other low-carb recipes using it, and I discovered lots of tasty-looking Low-Carb Corned Beef Recipes to share with you. If you like corned beef I bet you’ll find more than one idea here that appeals to you!

And Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
How to Cook Corned Beef:
There are multiple methods for cooking corned beef but I recommend you use the Instant Pot or pressure cooker and make this Pressure Cooker Corned Beef with Creamy Horseradish Sauce from Kalyn’s Kitchen. You’ll be glad you did! As you can see my corned beef was so tender I just pulled it apart, but make slices if you prefer.
Or if you want to see some other options for pressure cooker corned beef, check out The BEST Instant Pot Corned Beef Recipes on Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker. (Some recipes in that collection may have high-carb veggies or bread; obviously skip those for low-carb.)
If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can’t go wrong with Slow Cooker Corned Beef with Veggies and Horseradish Sauce from Kalyn’s Kitchen. Can you tell I love that horseradish sauce? (Skip the carrots for lowest carb.)
