If you are after a gourmet Irish meal, without oodles of extra time, try this slow cooker recipe. Dump it all in the crock, flip a switch, and hours later you can come home to tender melt-in-your-mouth corned beef. All that is left to do is slather the buns with Guinness Mustard, pile high with corned beef goodness, and dig on in.
We have Irish peasant cuisine to thank for this easy to make and easy to eat loaf. Back in the days when yeast was an expensive commodity, the Irish used a combination of baking soda and buttermilk to create lift. This soft textured bread requires no rising time and can be made in just 30 minutes.
The Irish were wielding kale before it was cool. If you are thrown off by the idea of something green in your taters, remember – the Irish are potato experts. These spuds are a staple in their diet and they have been roasting, mashing, and baking them for hundreds of years. Plus, this recipe calls for bacon. Enough said.
Irish potato pancakes are a savory breakfast delicacy flavored with onion, garlic, and green onion. They are perfect for repurposing left over mashed potatoes. If you’re feeling extra traditional, serve these cakes with a dollop of sour ream and a scattering of green onions.
Let it never be said that we forgot dessert! This adorable St. Patrick’s Day treat may be more American that Irish, but we aren’t complaining. Any day that can be celebrated with puppy chow is a good one. This recipe flavored with peppermint oil as a nod to its green hue.
