Other than the cottage cheese-lime dessert I usually make, nothing. We don't eat the typical SPD fare.

It's very hard to find corned beef when it's not St Pat's around here. I guess it's not a good seller. I'd love to make it during the year if I could find it more often

I wouldn't be surprised to hear that's true but according to wiki Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. I had to look it up, I'm not Irish (Hungarian) so wasn't sure of the tradition

Those cupcakes sound awesome!

Corned beef never goes on sale here till after the holiday. I will be waiting for the sale so no CB for me on the 17th.

I'm going out because it's my anniversary and am unlikely to come across corned beef on the menu. I do like it, and would like to have some before or after the day, but it doesn't go on much of a sale here, not being very popular. So I'll need the luck of the Irish to come across a nice piece that's worth it.

If you have a nearby Aldi, check there.

I understand it is widely celebrated,but corned beef is not a food that is eaten much in the Republic of ireland, which was my point, Corned beef & cabbage was a NY dish & has become a symbol of Paddys day in America, but not in Ireland.

I read that years ago but the irish immigrants "adopted" the brisket because it was cheap
this is no slam for the irish … my mothers maiden name is O'Connor …. quite irish



I will have home made corned beef- but I use a bottom flat (primal) bottom round roasts and soak in brine .. with some pickling spices... I also "corn" some pork roasts which are very good (and cheap) I will cook in my instapot pressure cooker this year til it falls apart

I also make a corned beef sausage in the casings...no one else makes it and it sells well in the stores - great for breakfast!


here is a corned beef tip- don't bake in oven...it will taste like a piece of salt.... for years I would have ladies bring back corned beef and say it was the worst they ever had....I asked how she cooked it... they baked them ...it should be cooked in moist heat ..
now I place cooking instructions all around the corned beef display

slow cookers are great for corned beef

I agree, I once spent St Patrick's day in two Irish owned, very traditional Irish Pubs. The menu at both centered on lamb stew and Guinness and there was no corned beef & cabbage to be had.
