St. Patrick’s Day FooD..Mmmm.

Ahhhhhhhh..Tis that time o the year again laddies n lassies.
[audio:Celtic - Irish - Fiddles - Dance Music.mp3]

My buddy Gayle tagged me….woot!

It’s all about the Food!

1. You have three days to post an old time recipe that nobody in their health-conscious mind would eat much of these days. The chief perk of being a peasant, working like a beast, and not living long enough to die of heart disease anyway, was that you could eat anything you wanted.

2. You must then tag two others.

OK..It took me alot longer than 3 days but here goes:

Glazed Corned Beef brisket.

Whatcha Need:
A big (really big..heh) corned beef brisket..oh..and a pot..(a really big pot) ha

.
Vegetables:
5-6 medium potatoes
2 cups baby carrots

1 to 2 dozen small boiling onions
1 medium cabbage, cut in 6-8 wedges


.
Glaze:
1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup mustard
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
(you can add ketchup for a bit o zing)

Now…for da heavy liftin:

1-Grab that huge corned beef brisket you just spent 60 bucks on and toss it..(on second thought)…lift it ‘gently’ in a large pot.

2-Cover it with water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for at least 2 1/2 hours. Nothin worse than a raw corned beef.
3-Go find the potatoes, carrots, and and onions.(Don’t forget the peel the onions..heh) Add them to the boilin corned beef pot.

4-Cover and simmer for 10 minutes longer.

5-Find the ole cabbage wedges, add them too, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes longer, or until vegetables are tender.

(for cheaters..heh : You can cook yer cabbage in a separate pan if you don’t have room, in a small amount of salted boiling water.)

6-Now cover the pan and simmer for about 15 minutes. Keep simmerin till the potatoes and other vegetables are tender.

Now for the fun part:

7-Put the corned beef brisket in a baking pan.

8-Combine all the sweet, yummy “glaze” ingredients in a saucepan; bring ‘em to a simmer and cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Spoon if all over corned beef and bake at 350-375° for about 10 minutes.

Serve it up sliced to your family, friends ..and um…me!..with with boiled cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and small onions. Mmmmmmmmmm.

OK..On St Paddys, wer’e all Irish.

Happy St. Patricks Day one and all!

p.s. If your’e kissin…….I’m Irish!

I tag my friends Aurora, and Layla !

    TOP’ O-THE MORNIN’ TO YOU!

    i like fried cabbage with my corned beef.

    in a large skillet, melt one cube of butter, toss in a half of a chopped onion and simmer until the onions are glassy; add two cups of sliced mushrooms – sprinkly garlic pepper to taste; atop that mixture, add a half of a thin sliced cabbage – cook on medium heat, stirring until the mixture begins browning – serve with seasoned rice vinegar – YUM. E.

    I love corned beef but not cabbage. Hubby won’t eat it so I don’t cook it just for me. Have a great day Angel and NANC.

  3. Gayle says:

    Well, of course you waited until now, Angel. You wanted to do corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day! Looks yummy and I promise I’m going to try your glaze recipe. Thanks! :)

  5. Kevin says:

    Another good Irish meal to have on St. Patrick’s day is ‘Lucky Charms’ and milk. I believe they are stolen from a real live leprechaun!

  6. MK says:

  10. Panhandle Poet says:

    Aye, there’s a bit o’ the Irish in me too eh? (heh, heh!)

  11. middleclassguy says:

    A few years ago a Greek friend of mine lamented about St, Patrick’s Day and all the other days.

    “Look, on St. Patrick’s Day it is kiss me I’m Irish. On St. Joseph’s Day, it is Kiss me I’m Italian or Kiss me I’m Polish. What do we Greeks have? F**ck me I’m Greek?”

    Happy St. Pats!

  12. Aurora says:

    Thanks for the tag, Darl (as we say in Aus). And top of the mornin’ to ye though I think I may have missed your morning.
    The food looks great. My very Anglicized Aussie dad loves nothing better than a spiced corned beef with white onion sauce, carrots and cabbage. And my very American mom doesn’t mind it either. ;)

  13. cube says:

    Top of the mornin’ to you.

  14. in2thefray says:

    Happy Evacuation Day (the reason Bostonians actually get the day off)…oh ok Happy St. Patrick’s Day

  15. The Hermit says:

    I love corned beef! But there’s nothing Irish going on here in the Mountains. I think they have a big party in Savannah, though.

  16. Joe Gringo says:

    Corned beef & cabbage can only be beat by eating it the next day as a sandwich on a fresh onion roll and nibbling on a dried roasted chile arbol!

  17. Brooke says:

    OOOOHHH! That looks goooood!

    I will be having green beer tonight! :)

  18. In_spired says:

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

  19. MariesTwoCents says:

    Ok this has made me soooooo hungry :-)

    Angel you look like an excellent cook.

    I gotta copy those recipes :-)

  20. Debbie says:

    Thanks for the e-card Angel. Very nice.

  21. Goat says:

    Sounds delicious Angel, though I would have added at least a dozen cloves of minced garlic to the glaze, I like to keep the vampires at bay and a half teaspoon of powder won’t do the trick. Happy St Paddy’s Day and a virtual hug and kiss.
