With St. Paddy’s Day right around the corner, we can’t help but turn our thoughts to ways to properly celebrate the holiday that pays homage to the Emerald Isle.
Of course, St. Patricks’s Day here in America looks a bit different from how it looks back in Ireland. While plenty of holiday traditions can be traced back to the old country, several are unique to more modern Irish-American customs.
For example, the corned beef and cabbage that Grandma insists is a centuries-old family recipe? It used to be boiled bacon with cabbage. Corned beef didn’t enter the equation until Irish arrivals to America learned all about brining from their new Eastern European neighbors.
Now, it’s a unique and delicious part of Irish-American culture, one that’s enjoyed all across the country come March 17.
Of course, these days, we can get a little more creative with the customary ingredients. For a modern take on this old-fashioned recipe, we’re especially obsessed with tasty corned beef sliders, which offer a perfect taste of that St. Paddy’s spirit!
