Recipes for your St. Patrick's Day Dinner

We may not all be of Irish decent, but that doesn't mean we can't join in on the celebration for St. Patrick's Day on March 17th!  The traditional menu on St. Patrick's Day typically includes Corned Beef and Cabbage, Irish Soda Bread and Colconnan Potatoes, but it's also a fun meal to get creative with.  Some people choose to make everything green or have everything on the menu incorporate beer somehow.  Here are a few options depending on the focus of your menu this year.

If you are going traditional, here is a great recipe for Corned Beef

Glazed Corned Beef

Or, for another option for a hearty Irish main course, try our Lamb Stew

Looking to cook everything with beer?  A brisket cooked with beer is known to tenderize the meat and give it a great flavor

Barbecued Brisket
It's always fun to have something green on the menu!  For dessert, try something like our Key Lime Tart that naturally has a hint of green to it, or add a few drops of green food coloring to your favorite dessert such as cheesecake or a vanilla milkshake.

  1. I am definitely trying these. Lamb stew this Sunday and I can't decide if I want to do Brisket or Corned Beef for Saint Patty's day. Too many yummy options :)


Thank you for your comment!
