This glass basket was given to me years ago by my sister. I decided to decorate with it this Holiday season.
You would think that with my Irish roots from both parents – that somewhere along the way I would have learned how to cook a few Irish dishes. Not the case – needless to say my husband was surprised when I said I never made Corn Beef and Cabbage. But by golly I was going to make it this St. Patrick’s Day. This is the beauty of the internet – you can find all kinds of recipes and tutorials.
So I started with a prepared version from Costco and just followed the directions from a recipe I found on Simply Recipes by Elise. I wasn’t sure which one to cook (baked or boil) so I made both.
This is the baked version which was absolutely delicious. This is the one I served to my husband the night before the dinner party. I wanted to do a test run just in case it didn’t turn out good. This way I could always run out to the store and buy another one before the dinner party.
I took the left over corn beef, added more cabbage, potatoes, carrots and threw it in the crock pot for several hours. This is the one I served on Sunday for our St. Patrick’s Day Dinner on the porch. Everyone said it was very delicious.
My very own fan club – they gave me all hands up for this dish.
Table all set and ready for St. Patrick’s Day Dinner with Family and Friends.
Cute little shamrock pasta as a side dish.
And of course can’t have an Irish dinner without Potato Soup.
