March 14, 2015
In case you need a reminder, St. Patrick's Day is just days away: Tuesday, March 17! Why not fete the occasion with a traditional Irish dish? Here are some recipes to try out in your kitchen at Yorktown:
1) Irish Soda Bread With Raisins
Mildly sweet with a scone-like texture, Irish Soda Bread rises through the use of baking soda, not yeast (hence its name). The ingredient list simple: flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, butter, buttermilk, and raisins. Once baked, enjoy the bread toasted with a pat of butter. Click here for the full recipe.
Rich, creamy, and studded with green onions, this filling side dish (the Irish take on mashed potatoes) combines two pounds of potatoes with whipping cream, butter, and one bunch of sliced green onions. While this dish is simple, its success hinges upon keeping all of the ingredients warm during preparation. Click here for the full recipe.
3) Beef and Guinness Pie
This oven-baked, stick-to-your-ribs dish boasts a savory broth that's flavored by beef stock, Irish stout, thyme, and green peppercorns. It's a little more involved than the two recipes above, but your efforts will be rewarded! Click here for the full recipe.
