Corned Beef and Cabbage Chowder with Beer

I love good chowder-they are filling and flavorful. Corned Beef and Cabbage Chowder with Beer is a great recipe if you have leftover corned beef (which is laughable because why would you have leftover corned beef? It’s corned beef! There is never any leftovers!).

I used some corned beef that had previously been prepared in a crockpot overnight with stout and shred it down to incorporate it into this dish. The bock gives the chowder depth while also providing a sweet edge to the creamy chowder. The beer cuts through the flavors that linger from fattiness of the corned beef but doesn’t leave behind a boozy taste. This is a great recipe for a cool spring evening!
