Not sure what we're having, but I will take advantage of the lower price on corned beef and turn them into pastrami!

I always buy an extra packet while it is on sale, it freezes really well, & we normally have it the weekend after TG, makes a nice change from all the turkey.

GBH. how about a lentil shepherds pie? Make lentils & add the veg & top with mashed potatoes. That would make a nice vegetarian meal for the day.

How are you going to do that?

Corned beef and pastrami are two different things.

If I'm cooking, I'll usually make this corned beef and cabbage from a Sheila Lukins cookbook. All done in a pot. I don't enjoy doing it as much for just the two of us so we may seek out a bar this year.

I asked her about typical St. Paddy's day food (last year) and I was shocked to learn she'd never had corned beef. She'd had soda bread but said it was extremely rare, brown bread was the common replacement. And apparently "boiled veg" is the bane of most Irish kids, but her mom was an enthusiastic home cook and managed to steer clear of boiled veg.



Completely ruined my perspective on what to eat for that day.
yup! I grew up in Ireland and earning corned beef was NOT A thing. in fact, I detest it after moving here stateside 22 years ago and still do, to this day. I only make lamb stew and Shepard pie for st Patricks festivities.

I'd like to hear Dogboa's method too!

Pastrani is normally smoked, I use a recipe that roasts foil-wrapped spice rubbed corned beef low and low that makes a reasonable imitation pastrami, no smoking involved.

https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/22...made-pastrami/

There are a number of recipes on the internet with the same intent and differing methods/herbs/spices.

St. Pat's is not a real holiday to me, but I will most likely buy a corned beef or two and cook them whatever day I feel like.

I serve the corned beef with dark or rye bread and mustard and dill pickles, and usually mustard potato salad. I like the cabbage to be cole slaw or crisp roasted cabbage. I don't do that limp, overcooked, stinky boiled cabbage. Yick.

I like corned beef and buy it around this time of year because it's available and usually at a reasonable price. I cook one and freeze a couple for later use. It has nothing to do with St. Patrick's day for me.

I'll bake some Irish soda bread, and hubby may make his Shepard's pie, or some kind of meat with Colcannon. Either way dinner is going to be delicious!

Would you mind telling me how you make yours? I prefer roasted vegetables, but I've never had roasted cabbage.

Thanks.
