Saint Patrick’s Day
Homemade Corned Beef
Homemade corned beef is crazy easy to make. And it’s not just for St. Patrick’s Day. Although the holiday simply isn’t the same without it.
A better way to start your day. Uh, we mean, end your day. That’s what we meant. Yes. End it. Ahem.
Chocolate Stout Cake
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (or any day) with this Guinness-infused chocolate cake that’s smothered in swirls of browned butter cream cheese frosting.
Mac and Cheese with Beer
Cheesy noodles, with a crunchy crust of spicy cracker crumbs, are a step up from the same old mac ‘n cheese you’ve been relying on.
Ina Garten’s Mashed Potatoes with Lemon
If Ina believes mashed potatoes need a little acidity to smooth out the richness, so be it. Here’s our new go-to approach to this oh-so-comforting side dish.
Guinness Ice Cream Float
A marvie blend of bitter stout and sweet ice cream, this inspired adults-only rendition of an old-fashioned float just may take you by surprise.
Crisply deep-fried and flaky, this fish is better than take-out. It comes together fast enough that it’s weeknight friendly and beer keeps the batter light, too.
Black Velvet Cocktail
There’s a reason this effervescent mingling of stout and Champagne contains the word “velvet.” It’s sooooo smooth and subtly sophisticated. Sip for yourself.
Pan Boxty ~ Irish Potato Pancake
An Irish classic for a darn good reason. Actually, three reasons—it’s shamelessly simple, flagrantly frugal, and undeniably delicious. Lovers of colcannon, rösti, latkes, and hash browns will find comfort here.
Cowboy Steaks with Guinness Sauce
If you thought steak could get no better than a gorgeous bone in rib eye seared to perfection, you need to try this Guinness pan sauce.
Corned Beef Hash
David comes to understand that for some, corned beef hash is about far more than mere sustenance or ridding the fridge of leftovers. Far, far more.
Irish Soda Bread
A sweet nuttiness, a dense crumb, a crunchy crust, and bags more flavor than normal bread. Whatcha waiting for?
Chocolate Mocha Cake with Irish Whiskey
Mocha chocolate cake slathered with an Irish whiskey-spiked chocolate glaze. A decadent, grown-up cake good for whatever ails you.
Twice-Baked Potatoes with Corned Beef
When you have leftover corned beef, there’s only one thing to do with it: make these twice-baked potatoes.
Brown Soda Bread
We guarantee you’re going to feel Irish when you sit down and savor a slice of this brown soda bread. Consider it a borrowed Irish birthright.
Colcannon ~ Potatoes and Cabbage
There are countless versions of this classic. We’re partial to this recipe which gilds the potatoes and cabbage with kale and bacon and beer.
Steak and Ale Pies
Steak and ale. A classic duo. Though this may be a slightly different format than you’re accustomed, it’s just as indulgent as a steak and a pint alongside. Maybe more so.
Beef and Guinness Pie
Essentially Irish stew with some lovely store-bought puff pastry plopped on top. Easy peasy. And actually, quite elegant.
Twice-Baked Potatoes with Irish Cheddar
You may have had twice-baked potatoes before. But we’d wager they weren’t anything like these lovely little Irish-inflected spuds.
