Don't settle for just a corned beef sandwich. Try these five corned beef dishes.
March is finally here and that means St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner. Besides celebrating this Irish holiday with lots of alcohol and green-colored food, corned beef is a staple item during this time of year.

Don't just settle for a regular corned beef hash or corned beef and cabbage dish (although they are quite scrumptious), because Houston is home to several restaurants offering creative corned beef dishes you probably won't find in Ireland.

Here are five corned beef dishes, in no particular order, that you must try.

Irish Nachos at Kenneally's Irish Pub

You've probably had nachos covered with cheese, ground beef, jalapeños, tomatoes and a smorgasbord of other toppings. But you probably haven't had corned beef on top of nachos. Instead of tortilla chips, Kenneally's serves thick potato slices underneath their cheese and corned beef as their signature item.

Shamrock Special at Kenneally's Irish Pub

Kenneally's offers another twist on ordinary corned beef dishes by topping their signature thin-crust pizzas with corned beef. Their Shamrock Special takes pizza to a whole new level with savory corned beef, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and, of course, cheese. Get your Irish food fix with this delicious thin-crust pizza.

You can get just about anything with corned beef at Kenny & Ziggy's. But you don't want to miss their new burger menu, which features the Big Reubowski -- a burger piled high with their house-cured corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian dressing. This is a hearty burger you'll want to try. So, whether you're in the mood for a giant corned beef sandwich with pastrami, cole slaw and Russian dressing, or a pancake-style omelette with corned beef, there are several ways for you to get your corned beef fix.

Corned Beef Burger at Brian O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant

Brian O'Neill's offers another corned beef burger to try in Houston -- tender corned beef with gooey, melted cheese between your choice of asourdough, wheat or jalapeño cheese bun. You can order this burger off their Deluxe Burger Bar menu or try corned beef sliders with sauerkraut and mustard during happy hour.

These aren't like regular egg rolls.
Irish Egg Rolls at Celtic Gardens

Celtic Gardens not only offers a lively atmosphere and great selection of drinks, it also serves up some tasty appetizers and entrées, including its Irish Egg Rolls. Order up the miniature egg rolls stuffed with a blend of cheese, cabbage, sauerkraut and corned beef. These are definitely not your everyday egg rolls. Dip them in the spicy whole grain mustard sauce and you've got a finger-licking good appetizer.

So, seriously, where are the best corn beef sandwiches in town?  I've enjoyed the K&Z version, even if it is a product of excess.  NY Deli has a solid corn beef sandwich.  I long for a Butera's corn beef on rye.
