St. Paddy's Day Celebrations
I know it's been awhile, but, I'm back with a special, beef lover's, St. Patrick's Day Special!!!
Fun times started over the weekend.
My Irish blood was boiling, so we decided to make it a culinary celebration!
Saturday it was a traditional boiled Irish supper.
We got to boiling some Chuck Steak in the slow cooker with: Guinness, Peppercorns, and a few Bay Leaves...
Later we added Potatoes, Cabbage, and Carrots. Mmmm....
But, the best was saved for the actual night of St. Patrick's Day.
addROC made a ridiculous Guinness marinated steak.
Which was cooked to perfection.
Then, we moved on to a traditional Irish treat that is so delectable and delightful, that its consumption with a beverage like Guinness or Jameson is ABSOLUTELY necessary, and really, just plain common sense.
The One...The Only....
IRISH SODA BREAD!!!!
We ate, drank, and were oh-so-very-merry.
Just as St. Paddy would have wanted it himself.
Cheers to the Irish!
Erin Go Bragh!!!
