Corned Beef and Cabbage : An Americanized Irish Meal

Corned beef and cabbage is the quintessential meal for American’s on St. Patrick’s Day. There’s nothing like a plate of delicious boiled cabbage, carrots, and a thick slice of corned beef; couple that with a pint of green beer and you’ve got yourself a celebration!

Americans have been eating corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day since the 1700’s when Irish immigrants,—discovering that pork prices were too high in their new country—began cooking with beef (I know, hard to believe there was a time when pork was more expensive than beef!) They took a special liking to corned beef because of it’s cured, salty-deliciousness that was similar to bacon from Ireland.

So—here we are in 2021—ready to make our annual corned beef feast! But this year instead of corned beef boiled with cabbage—it’s corned beef, carrots, celery, and onions all slow cooked together in a sauce made of spicy brown mustard, brown sugar, and broth; a new take on a classic dish that’s sure to please around the St. Patty’s Day table.
