Happy St. Paddy’s Day – Corned Beef,Colcannon and Irish Brown Soda Bread

In honor of St. Patrick and the beautiful country of Ireland on today’s menu is Irish fare. Corned Beef, Colcannon and Irish Brown Soda Bread.  I made the corned beef as I do every year, bring to a boil on the stove top with onion and spices and then braise in the oven for about 4 hours, next year I am going to make Suzanne Goins genius recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage that is on Food52. The Colcannon is a recipe from Whole Foods, you can’t get more simple or delicious in my opinion, boil the potatoes, saute some onion and cabbage and mash it all together I made two very minor changes I caramelized the onions before adding the cabbage and instead of milk I added melted butter and creme fraiche.  Here is, Whole Foods Colcannon recipe  The Brown Bread is from food52, its a recipe Merrill Stubbs posted, it’s a family recipe her Mother always made and is absolutely delicious, Irish Brown Bread slathered with Irish butter.  I am looking forward to having Creative  Culinary’s authentic Irish Coffee Recipe

  2. Thank you so much the colcannon and brown bread were great, I eat meat but not that often. The jam was a gift from Amanda from Dabblings and Whimsey and was so delicious with the bread and butter.

  3. Love this whole meal – I hope you enjoyed every bite! Colcannon is the ultimate comfort food. When I was in Ireland I got hooked on Irish brown bread and butter with slices of smoked salmon . You are inspiring me to make it again!

  5. I’m not a vegetarian – but my favorite part of the meal are the sides including veggies. This looks great and looks like my St. Patrick’s Day feast!

    • I eat meat in moderation, but like it too much to completely give it up. Like you the sides are the stars of the show for me, the leftover corned beef is good though. Thank you so much
