St. Paddy's Recipes

Post by DEF »

I want to tuck in on Tuesday in fine Irish style. But instead of going out, we'll just do it at home.

I would be most grateful for your best Irish recipes. (The Guinness I already have covered.)

I'll cook 2 or 3 of the most promising dishes and post photos afterward. I invite you to do the same.

Many thanks!

I only know one relevant recipe:

Ingredients:
a) Beer
b) Glass (optional)

Method:
Put beer in glass
Apply glass to mouth

In a hurry?
Apply beer directly to mouth. Saves time and dish washing.
Give us the luxuries, and we will forgo the necessities.

Set a man on fire, he'll be toasty for the rest of his life.

Yes, yes -- beer, of course (black, not green). But I'm thinking also along the lines of Irish stew... shepherd's pie... corned beef and cabbage... soda bread. You know, stuff that gives you the energy to hoist the pint glass and, afterward, this.

I can lift recipes off the interwebs, but I'm holding out for something that someone's Great Grandma Mary Catherine O'Callaghan brought over in a steamer trunk, etc.

Don' leave me toroly disappointed, now.

My mother used to make a wonderful corned beef stew with dumplings and potatoes. It was my favourite meal as a kid, but I have no idea of the actual recipe. Also, and I'm guessing here, not very expensive ingredients wise :wink:

All I can suggest is trading that Guinness for Murphy's.

Doug,

After the main course of Guinness (or Murphy's) can I suggest Molly's Irish Stout followed by Hilden's Ireland's Call and Beckett's Dublin Beer.

Sorry I can't come up with some solid efforts but you won't go wrong with this recipe.

Regards,

Phil.

Yeah, I was going to mention that one but it is not quite the same as it was a few years ago. Even in the emerald isle!

Regards,

Phil.

If you change "Guinness" to "Murphy's" in all cases above, you'll have a whole new set of Irish recipes that taste even better :D

Yikes!

Oh well. This is as good a place as any for this......

You know Dom.... Why bother with applying the beer to the mouth? Why not just jam the bottle down the throat and apply directly to the stomach? Sure, the tastebuds are bypassed, but you did specify "in a hurry". :wink:

I liked to help out bur for me it is just traditional Corned beef with boiled cabbage, carrots and potatoes (although I like to shake a little malt vinegar on the cabbage and all).

That said, Dominic, is there any way you could get that recipe for the stew, that sounds perfect to me.

My default choice will be some kind of lamb stew with Guinness, with soda bread on the side (no fruit). I may get ambitious and cook the stew over the weekend, then do corned beef and cabbage in the crock pot on Tuesday. But that seems like a lot of food.

I'm not sure what an Irish dessert looks like. I was thinking spotted dick with custard, but I believe that's English. Maybe some kind of rustic apple tart with cream.

I leave the cooking on that day to my Irish wife. She usually makes corned beef and cabbage with some potatos and other stuff.

But I will provide the beer!

I emailed my mother, but I don't think she's made it in decades, so memories may be rusty.

Not a connoisseur of Irish food, but I do enjoy shepherd's pie once or twice a year. Here's a short video from Gordon Ramsay with a recipe that looks very easy:

I'll probably try this myself but substitute ground beef for the lamb for a cottage pie.
