Please enjoy this easy recipe for a traditional St. Patrick’s day corned beef and cabbage.
- 1 onion, cut into wedges
- 4 potatoes, peeled & quartered
- 1 pound carrots, cut into large chunks
- 3 cups water
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 (3 pound) corned beef brisket with spice packet, cut in half
- 1 small head cabbage, cut into wedges
Place onion, potatoes, and carrots in a 5-quart slow cooker. Combine water, garlic, bay leaf, sugar, vinegar, and contents of spice packet in a small bowl; pour over vegetables. Top with brisket & cabbage.
Cover & cook on low until meat & vegetables are tender, 8-9 hours. Remove bay leaf before serving.
Strangely, the same wines that go with Thanksgiving dinner also go well with Corned Beef & Cabbage.
If you prefer Red, Red, Red wine go with a Beaujolais, Grenache, a light Pinot Noir may also be nice. Steer clear of Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot.
On the White wine list, try Pinot Grigio, or Riesling.
You could also try something completely different. Black & tan perhaps?
- Get a frosty mug
- Pour 1/2 a bottle of Bass Ale
- Slowly pour 1/2 a bottle of Guinness over a spoon(downside up) so it runs down the side of the glass.
- The bottom 1/2 of the glass should be tan and the top should be black.
What does this have to do with business? Not a thing. But you know what they say…all work and no play?!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
