Spirited Corned Beef!

Cheers!


St. Patricks Day, the favorite dish is corned beef, cabbage and potatoes. And while, it's not a traditional feast dish in Ireland, it is tender and delicious and about the easiest cut to cook, perfect for a crowd. The only trick is to cook it long enough on a low simmer with plenty of pickling spices and a bottle of beer -- a good stout (Guinness or a Harp Larger works well).  Once the beef is cooked, remove it and drain off most of the liquid, then remove the meat and glaze it with a little honey and mustard before serving it up. Add sliced potatoes and carrots in the pot to steam in the leftover cooking juices. Slice and serve the meat on top with lots of soda bread and plenty of beer.

Cheers!
