"Corned beef and cabbage might be one of the most popular dishes to eat on St. Patrick's Day. However, it's not an authentic Irish recipe—it's Irish-American. Irish immigrants invented the dish when they first settled in New York City and started eating the corned beef sold at kosher butchers."- From delicious.
So what do the Irish eat on St. Patty’s Day? (Please note, “Lucky Charms” is not an acceptable answer.)
After all the day's festivities, for example- Murphy's Annual St. Patrick's Day Party (10 am to 4 pm) families sit down to a large meal of Shepard's Pie/Cottage Pie, Irish Stew or Dublin Coddle. Side Dishes such as Irish Soda Bread or Boxty (Potato Pancakes) are also served. All though Murphy's Irish Soda Bread with Kerrygold Creamy Butter is absolutely one of my favorites that I look forward to every year, this is also an Irish-American recipe. In Ireland this would be called a "Spotted Dog" because of the raisins.
After all those dishes desserts are a must. Baileys Irish Cream also has a way of sneaking into Irish cakes and puddings. Murphy's Irish Cream Cake is a must try!
Enjoying St. Patrick's Day in the traditional or the Irish-American way, Murphy's has you covered. Stop in and see what we have to offer!
