St. Patrick's Day Corned Beef

With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching I thought that I would ask for some new ideas on preparing the traditional corned beef dinner.

I usually boil (pressure cook actually) the corned beef and serve it with cabbage, potatoes and carrots. Compliment with vinegar, butter and mustard at the table. It's a wonder such simple fare can be so delicious and satisfying.

Anyone do things differently? I'm sure that there are many other traditions and traditional meals for St. Paddy's Day.

hopefully i'll be going up to my local pub after work.
their irish fare includes: imported smoked salmon on toast points with herb whipped sour cream; shepards pie; lamb stew; imported bangers and mash; an irish burger (10 oz. burger - well done, topped with irish bacon - like a back bacon, sauteed onions, and irish cheddar); soda, brown, and batch breads; irish style boiled bacon, cabbage and spuds, or american style corned beef; chips - fries with malt vinegar; and various other specials that usually include lamb, pork, and butter and cream sauces.
and the guinness, harp, smithwick's, and magner's will flow like the foyle...

Since it's on a Friday this year, there will be no corned beef or beer for me on St. Patrick's day this year (So Bucky, you'll need to drink my share, too). We'll likely do something with fish, and have the corned beef on the 16th or 18th.

That sounds like a feast, Bucky.
I cook my corned beef in the crockpot with the contents of the seasoning packet that comes with it and a beer. Once it's done, I remove the meat, and cook cabbage and new potatoes in the juice. HB will eat the corned beef, but not the cabbage.

When it comes to traditional meals for St. Paddy's Day, or anything else - why would I want to muck up traditional with some nouveau made up stuff? To me - it's a time to celebrate a link to my ancestors - not try to come up with new recipes to replace theirs. To me, that takes the tradition out of traditional.

I'll have boiled corned beef, onions, carrots, potatoes, and cabbage - and a loaf of soda bread.

RonJohn - I think there is a special dispensation for St. Patrick's Day if your Irish.

We do the traditional boil with the exception of using brussel sprouts in place of cabbage. SO likes cabbage and I do not. I have to put in some turnip for her as well.

brussels sprouts! What a great idea! We love both cabbage and sprouts but I think the brussels would look better.

michael, are you going for traditional irish, or traditional irish american?
the celebration of st. pat's has been going on in america long enough to be considered to have it's own traditions, such as parades, partying, and corned beef. in ireland years ago, it was merely a day for church and a small family dinner. today, ireland has taken on more american ways and now it's the same big dealio.
boiled corned beef, with cabbage and potatoes is traditional irish american.
boiled bacon, whick is more like a ham, with 2 boiled vegetables, usually root veggies like the carrots and cabbage that you've mentioned with boiled potatoes is traditional irish.
