What To Serve With Corned Beef Pie – 45 BEST Side Dishes

If you’re wondering what to serve with your corned beef pie, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 45 of the most popular side dishes for corned beef pie.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best side dishes to serve with corned beef pie are British baked beans, cauliflower cheese, creamed peas, and pan haggerty (cheese and onion casserole). You can also serve a tossed green salad, braised red cabbage, spiced zucchini or coleslaw. A whiskey and bacon chutney is a tasty condiment.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

British baked beans

Baked beans are a staple in English cuisine.

And a corned beef pie is perfect for mopping up all the tomato-y sauce!

You can use canned or dried beans for this recipe. Dried beans need some prep and take longer to cook, but they hold their shape much better. 

Why we love this recipe: it’s a one-pot wonder that everyone will love.

Spiced zucchini

Who knew zucchini could be so flavorful?

The key to this low-carb side dish is to marinate your zucchini slices in herbs (like oregano and garlic), spices (like cumin and paprika), chicken stock, and lemon juice for 30 minutes before cooking it.

Why we love this recipe: it transforms a simple ingredient into something restaurant worthy.

Creamed peas

Peas are another classic, but creamed peas are much more interesting.

It’s a really budget-friendly recipe and you only need 4 ingredients (plus salt and pepper to taste).

The peas will add a vibrant pop of green to the plate. I sometimes like to add yellow corn as well.

Why we love this recipe: you don’t need fancy ingredients to whip up this decadent dish.

Cream cheese mashed potatoes 

Indulge in some potato goodness and serve your corned beef pie next to a heaping spoonful of mash.

Adding cream cheese will take your mesh to the next level, and make it the most velvety mash you’ve had yet.

Don’t forget the gravy!

Why we like this recipe: it’s comfort food heaven.

Tossed green salad

If you want to keep your side dish light, a tossed green salad is the way to go. 

The key to this salad is in the dressing. You need a mixture of sweet and sharp flavors.

This reicpe uses Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, and honey.

It’s the perfect summer addition to a heavy corned beef pie. 

Why we love this recipe: it’s super easy to customize.

Fried pickle spears

These fried pickles may not be a traditional accompaniment to your corned beef.

But give it a try – you won’t regret it.

The salty, sharp flavors of the pickles are the perfect palate cleanser.

Why we love this: the added crunch makes these treats dangerously addicting.

Braised German red cabbage

Also known as rotkohl, this popular German dish is a superb side dish for your corned beef pie. 

The braised cabbage is delightfully tender and offers a sweet-tangy flavor that helps offset the richness of your corned beef pie.

And you can make it ahead of time because the flavors just keep developing.

Why we love this recipe: it will look great on the plate.

Baked potato chips

Want something crispy to serve with your corned beef pie?

Whip up a fresh batch of these homemade potato chips.

For best results, slice your potatoes as thin as possible – a sharp knife will do, but a mandoline is ideal.

Why we love this recipe: you have complete control over what seasoning you use – stick to plain salted or go crazy with something like lime and chili.

Psst… use a mixture of mushrooms for the best results.

Spicy sauteed broccolini

Looking for something healthy you can whip up in a flash?

Sauteed broccolini is the way to go. 

And this jazzed-up version is spicy and citrusy, thanks to the addition of crushed red pepper and a refreshing orange and lemon vinaigrette.

Why we love this recipe: it takes less than 15 minutes to prep and cook this veggie side.

Cauliflower cheese

Indulge responsibly with this cauliflower casserole.

If the thought of dipping your pie into a luxurious, creamy cheese sauce doesn’t make your tummy rumble, I don’t know what will.

You can easily add some broccoli for more color too if you want. 

Why we love this recipe: it calls for roasting the florets which means they won’t water down the cheese sauce.

Green bean salad

Not all salads are filled with lettuce!

This green bean salad is fresh and crunchy, with some juiciness from the tomatoes and creaminess from the mozzarella.

Then it has tangy balsamic lemon basil vinaigrette to tie everything together.

Why we love this recipe: it’s a great make-ahead salad.

Bringing the corned beef pie to a picnic? 

Coleslaw is the perfect crunchy accompaniment to your party treat. 

It’s easy to make and the creamy mayo dressing adds a refreshing bite that contrasts with your pies’ meaty flavor. 

Why we love this recipe: it uses sour cream in the dressing for that extra tangy flavor.

Pan haggerty

Pan haggerty is another British classic that hails from Northumberland.

It’s a potato casserole with cheese and onions. Simple, but delicious!

Pro tip: use a mandoline slicer to get thin and even potato slices (that’s the second time I’ve recommended one, so you can see how it will come in useful).

Why we love this recipe: you can eat the leftovers for breakfast with eggs.
