St. Patricks day dinner a few days early

I cooked St. Patrick's day dinner on friday night, seems appropriate for Chicago, since the city has been celebrating all weekend as well. I have been making this dinner every year since this recipe was first published in Sunset magazine back in 1994. The majority of my favorite recipes have come from Sunset. I am so glad I found a link to the article here, so I don't have to write it all out. This is an absolute favorite in our house and it smells heavenly while it is cooking.

What makes this so incredibly good is the addition of lots of extra seasonings, malt vinegar and Guiness stout, mmm......

You can't skip the colcannon, basically mashed potatoes with sauted cabbage and green onions

Yummy soda bread loaded with raisins, currants and caraway. I love this meal, we eat the leftovers for breakfast with eggs for days.


  1. That looks sooo good, Judy!

  2. I just know I could be Irish for this dinner!

  3. Eggs and soda bread for breakfast sounds delish!!

  4. yum! I love st patrick's day (mostly for the beer) and the fact I met my husband 34 years ago, on st. patrick's day, in a bar.

  5. Yummy I am going to make it today!Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh, I am enjoying your St. Pat's dinner vicariously, since I'm the only one home tonight and didn't want to cook just for myself! And, like you, I have found my best recipes for so many years in Sunset magazine. The best! Your dinner looks incredible. mmmmm

  7. Oh Yum! Can't wait to try the recipe! Thank you for the link!
