the festivities extend the entire weekend, but tomorrow is the official holiday. which means there’s still time left on the clock for another recipe. i’ve taken on the challenge to inspire your inner irish to be creative. i snatched a recipe, which will round out even the biggest menu. if you’ve got nothing planned like myself (hey, i’m hispanic), don’t fret. this one has all the irish staples in one serving. corned beef, cabbage, beer and of course, potato. now, that’s what i call —loaded and pretty genius too! this hearty side dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your st. patrick’s day dinner table.
Beer Braised Corned Beef and Cabbage
½ tablespoon olive oil
½ pound cooked corned beef
½ pound cabbage
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup dark beer of your choice
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
Sautee corned beef and cabbage constantly stirring.
Add brown sugar and add salt and pepper to taste.
Stir well and add beer. Cover and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Uncover, and let most of the liquid to be absorbed.
Once the beer has reduced, cabbage is caramelized and tender then you are ready to pour over the perfectly baked potato.
although i’d love taking full credit, this one solely belongs to melissa bailey from hungry food love. check out her site, for the complete recipe. which includes the magic behind baking a perfect baked potato. no magic or luck involved, actually. i hope ;-)
may your troubles be less,
and your blessing be more.
and nothing but happiness,
come through your door.
