This year, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (and week) from the comfort of your home–no need to go out! Curious Table is serving up home-cured beer-braised Corned Beef & Cabbage, glazed carrots, steamed potatoes, and Irish soda bread with salted-chive butter. Vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free options available.
My Uncle Dave comes from a proud Irish heritage. He watched his Irish grandparents boil corned beef in water until it was beyond well done and gray. He discovered that the corn in “corned beef” has nothing to do with corn–it is what salt grains were called in old Europe before they had ever seen Native American corn on the cob. Step by step, Dave learned of corned beef’s glorious potential and refined this dish until it became a bonafide family favorite–proper curing, beer braising, and then finishing with a honey glaze under the broiler. Yum! Then braise cabbage, carrots, and potato in the juices, and add authentic Irish soda bread with salted Irish butter and chives–now that is a meal not only worthy of St. Patrick but worthy of a strong American Irish heritage!
