Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipes

Corned beef and cabbage is an Irish-American dish that has long been a favorite for St. Patrick's Day. While, historically, the Irish produced corned beef, they were more likely to eat more affordable bacon or salt pork. Irish-American immigrants, more prosperous in this country, began eating beef.  In Ireland, the traditional St. Patrick's Day meal is likely to be bacon or lamb.
