Make your St Patrick’s Day dinner delicious. Because the 17th is on a Monday, some folks are making their traditional dinners on the week end. To make corned beef, step one is cut off all visible fat and then brown the corned beef in olive oil. Put three cans of beer in your crock pot, and cook the corned beef “to death.” What’s St Paddy’s Day without cabbage? It ain’t nothing. Besides 2 pounds of cabbage in the low-sodium broth pot, add 4 leeks, 4 carrots, 1 tsp. caraway seeds, 2 bay leaves, salt and pepper. Friends, this year I bought soda bread early at Sprouts Farmers market, froze it, and will thaw it prior to dinner. A field greens salad is always a nice touch.
I am wishing all of you the Luck of the Irish.
