Saint Patrick's Day Party Recipes

Saint Patrick's Day Party

St. Patrick's Day is a great day to break out and hold a fun themed dinner party. This day is a day for celebration and pure fun. This year, when you hold your party try this recipe to make your party delicious and fun.

No St. Patrick's Day Party would be a St. Patrick's Day party without some traditional corned beef. Many corned beef recipes tell you to boil your corned beef, but my family has found that roasted corned beef is a much better way to cook your St. Patrick's Day dinner.

Corned Beef & Cabbage Recipe
1/4 cabbage per person
2-3 potatoes per person
2-3 carrots per person

Start by purchasing a pre-packaged piece of corned beef. The pre-packaged beef is already seasoned properly and makes a delicious meal. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Place the corned beef into a roasting pan with about half of an inch of water. Cover the pan and bake for approximately an hour and a half.

Make sure to check the water level in the pan as you are baking. You want to be sure that the water doesn't completely boil out. Next wash the potatoes, but don't peel them. Peel the carrots. Cut the potatoes and carrots into quarters. Cut the cabbage into eighths. After the corned beef has baked for about and hour and half, remove it from the oven and add the potatoes and carrots. Bake for another 45 minutes. Remove it from the oven again, and place the cabbage slices on top. Bake for another 15 minutes.

Serve your corned beef and cabbage piping hot, with home-made soda bread, green beer and enjoy a thoroughly festive St. Patrick's Day dinner.
