If you are a lover or ham and cabbage, this is a delicious version using corned beef. If you ever have asked yourself you're going to do I do with all this corned beef leftover, this is a great recipe to try. We usually make quite a bit and love to make sandwiches with ours along with this soup.
After St. Patrick's Day, I love to find new uses for leftover corned beef. As much as I love my open faced reubens or regular simple reubens sandwiches, this is a must make every year with some of my corned beef leftovers.

The great thing about this recipe is you can also throw it all in a slow cooker. If your a busy homemaker, cook or working long hours, this will be a great soup to come home too.
If you happen to have a loaf of crusty bread leftover, that would be a perfect addition to sop up the delicious broth. Being March when St. Patrick's Day comes, it's still a little chilly out. This soup is sure to comfort and warm you up.
