Instead of the same old corned beef and cabbage recipe every year, try this new and exciting Korean twist on the St. Patrick's Day staple. The spicy fermented cabbage adds a lot of extra savoriness, not only to the meat, but even more so to the vegetables. The potatoes especially soak up a surprising amount of flavor, and may be my favorite part of the whole dish. Garnish with sliced green onions.

St. Patrick's Colcannon

Rating: Unrated
This is an 'Irish' way to deal with the leftover corned beef after the American corned beef and cabbage feast. My husband considers this a wonderful part of the corned beef cycle. I use red potatoes with skins on, substitute ham for the corned beef, and leeks for the green onions, depends on what's in the fridge.

Irish Stew

Beef and Guinness® Stew

Rating: Unrated
The maltiness of dark beer really does amazing things for this gravy. It's a very simple dish, but at the same time it has a deep, complex, rich flavor. I served this in a nice ring of green onion-mashed potatoes. I hope you give this a try, whether for St. Patrick's Day or anytime of the year.
