St. Patrick's Day Recipe Roundup

Are you looking to try some new St. Patrick’s day food or do you want classic Irish recipes for this year’s dinner? I’ve got you covered with main dish ideas to traditional sides, followed up by dessert for an unforgettable meal.

Corned beef and cabbage is a must, so no matter if you have a slow cooker, Instant Pot or want to oven roast the brisket, the recipes are ready to go. You’ve got to have to Irish soda bread served fresh from the oven on the table, so I have cheesy bacon and a sweet version. Potatoes are a must, so make them mashed, crispy or a little lighter with cauliflower.

Since there’s always room for dessert, a boozy shake or sweet treat is an excellent way to end your meal. You’ll find a little bit of whiskey, Irish coffee and Guinness sneaked into some of the recipes too!

#1) Baked Honey Mustard Corned Beef

This is my favorite baked method for making corned beef to ensure that each piece is tender, juicy and flavorful. The mustard and brown sugar glaze takes this roast over the top!

#2) Slow Cooker Corned Beef

One of the easiest ways to ensure that the corned beef is tender and not dry is to make it in the slow cooker, simmering for an extended period. Cabbage, carrots, and potatoes are cooked together with the beef for a simple feast.

#3) Corned Beef and Cabbage (Instant Pot)

Are you a proud owner of an Instant Pot? Now is the time to make corned beef and cabbage, pressure cooker version! The meat is simmered in a Guinness infused braising liquid and then broiled right before serving to create a brown sugar mustard crust.

#4) Slow Cooker Guinness Beef Stew

One of the best ways to infuse the flavors of stout, corned beef and potatoes are together in a stew! This slow-cooker version makes for tender pieces of meat and vegetables all in one pot. Make it in the morning, and it will be ready when you get home!

#10) Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Add some extra vegetables into the meal with cauliflower and swiss chard folded into the mashed potatoes. Make it more traditional like a colcannon with cabbage instead of swiss chard.
