Even if you don’t have even the tiniest bit of Irish blood, you’re still probably aware that St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, so I’m sharing my Low-Carb and Keto Irish-Inspired Recipes For St. Patrick’s Day to inspire you to start planning now to cook something special for that day! I don’t remember my mom ever cooking special food for St. Patrick’s Day, but for years I loved to make corned beef, cabbage, and Irish Brown Bread for my partly Irish dad, who loved all those dishes.

However, since I’ve been a food blogger I’ve learned that many foods Americans cook for this holiday are not really Irish at all.  And definitely I’m not claiming that my favorites in this post are authentic Irish recipes, but still they’re a fun way to celebrate the day. There are also some tasty ideas here for using leftover corned beef, but if you’re not lucky enough to have some of that, just buy corned beef in the deli to make some of these dishes.

My favorite way to cook corned beef is this delicious Instant Pot Corned Beef with Creamy Horseradish Sauce. And even though corned beef like this is more Irish-American than authentically Irish, I make it every year for St. Patrick’s Day!

If you’re not an Instant Pot fan, you can’t go wrong with my Slow Cooker Corned Beef. I skip the potatoes to make it more diet-friendly, and I’d go easy on the carrots too if you’re watching your carbs.

Roasted Cabbage with Lemon cooked cabbage on sheet pan

This Roasted Cabbage with Lemon is a dish I’d happily eat any time of the year, and it’s a perfect side dish if you’re cooking corned beef in the Instant Pot or the slow cooker! PLEASE don’t skimp on the lemon; that’s what makes this so amazing. (Or try Roasted Cabbage with Lime and Sriracha if you don’t mind some fusion food for St. Patrick’s Day!)

Low-Carb and Low-Glycemic Irish-Inspired Recipes For St. Patrick's Day found on KalynsKitchen.com

One famous authentically Irish dish is Colcannon, a combination of mashed potatoes and cabbage or kale, and my recipe for Low-Carb Colcannon (Pureed Cauliflower and Cabbage with Parmesan) is a tasty low-carb version of this famous Irish dish. This definitely tastes a lot better than it looks, I promise and it’s also a great side dish for corned beef!

It’s definitely a think-outside-the-box idea for leftover corned beef, but these Reuben Sandwich Cabbage Cups are such a tasty way to use corned beef!

Low-Carb Roasted Lemon Cabbage and Sausage Sheet Pan Meal found on KalynsKitchen.com

Sausage is a popular food in Ireland, so I think we can get away with calling this Cabbage and Sausage Sheet Pan Meal an Irish-inspired dish.

This new recipe for Instant Pot Cabbage and Sausage is so quick and easy to make and both these ingredients are traditional in Ireland!

Low-Carb Fried Cabbage with Bacon found on KalynsKitchen.com

Fried Cabbage with Bacon is easy and tasty and did you know that Bacon and Cabbage is a traditional Irish dish? Although what they call bacon in Ireland is a thicker version of what we’d call Canadian Bacon in the U.S.

If you don’t cook corned beef, you can use corned beef from the deli to make this AMAZING Low-Carb Reuben Bake.
