    Did you know that Corned Beef-and-Cabbage is not a national dish in Ireland even though it was certainly served centuries ago, but more out of necessity than in celebration? Beef needed to be cured in order to serve it since there was no refrigeration, so corned or cured beef was served amidst royal courts, according to Irish culinary history. But, while not popular in Ireland around St. Patrick’s Day, it is popular among Irish Americans and those of us who want to be Irish for a day. So, I say, what fun that you want to serve the dish this week in celebration of the green!

    Since the beef itself is salty, the cabbage is added to help tame the overall flavor of the dish, and that’s why it’s a classic combination. With the cabbage, you already have one side veggie dish. Cheese is a great accompaniment to corned beef, so how about a delicious macaroni-and-cheese. I’d choose one where you can bake it in the oven, and to make the cleanup easier, use a non-stick baking pan.

    For dessert, a green pistachio or chocolate chip mint ice cream would be good, or how about a chocolate pudding with nuts and whipped cream? You will be right in style with this Irish-inspired meal. It’s what Americans come to expect this time of year.

    Don’t forget the pint of something – from an Irish beer to a healthy soft drink – many of them are now even green in color. Good luck, as they say in Ireland everyday!

    If you have a crock pot you can cut up potatos, carrots, turnip, squash, and cabbage or any combination of these. Put them in the crock pot add quarter cup of water then place your corned beef on top then cook on low all day. This means like 7am till 6pm and enjoy.

    You can do this with a pot roast and a whole chicken. You can vary the mix by adding beef broth, chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup, etc....

    Good place to look is crock pot cooking online.

    Enjoy.
