Can you believe that Saint Patty’s day is this week? They had the annual holiday parade here in Rochester this past weekend. I have to say, I am a total winter wimp and I only went one year when the temperature freakishly happened to be like 70 degrees. That is unheard of for mid-March! I will attend the parade again should we ever hit those kind of temps again for the parade. Unlikely, though.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

So I made my first brisket and first corned beef last week! I was so proud of myself for venturing out of my dinner comfort zone. Mr. Wishes fought me on it, as he’s a self-proclaimed corned beef hater, but he sucked it up and ate it! It’s a traditional Irish dish and is absolutely mandatory for St. Patrick’s Day so it just HAD to happen. Serve it with carrots, potatoes, and cabbage and it makes for one hearty meal! If you’re totally into Irish food you’ll also love these Shepherd’s Pie Meatballs or Guinness Beef Stew.

I used Certified Angus Beef® in this Irish Braised Corned Beef Brisket! You’ve seen the symbol right? Perhaps at your local Grocery store in the butcher section or at the meat counter? CAB definitely defines the standard by which all beef is measured and you always know what you’re getting with their brand – high quality beef with superior taste. They strive for nothing but the best as far as tenderness, flavor and juiciness in their beef. I really can taste the difference as far as tenderness and flavor. I actually did a blind taste test with New York Beef back in the fall and was able to recognize the Certified Angus Beef steak right away!

Serve this Irish Braised Corned Beef Brisket with some Guinness Beer Bread and you’re good to go. Enjoy!

    This looks amazing! I just prepared corned beef last week and you’ve got me craving for more after seeing your pictures! I love CAB! I even ordered some online for my brother when it was his birthday and got him hooked! 😀 They taste too good no to share! I can’t wait to make more this week.

    Wow – your corned beef looks beautiful! I’ve never attempted this dish either, but I might after this. We need to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in style! (and maybe with a Shamrock shake or two… heh heh)

    That looks wonderful! Having ours tonight. I smoked it into pastrami last night and steaming it ala Katz Deli tonight. Can’t wait and your pictures are making it that much harder 🙂 Great job!

    That corned beef looks as good in the picture as it does in my dreams. I feel like Pavlov’s dog. Everytime i look at the picture. I drool. Please remember El Jeffe will never ever stop living the dream.

    I’ve never had a brisket this way…even though I am Irish! My husband would love this…he’s all about cabbage and meat!

    I was just explaining to my mother-in-law about corned beef…she never had it in Italy and never heard of it. Yours turned out delightful!!!

    I should stop thinking dessert and go savory. I love corned beef and have never made it. This looks fabulous. I also love cabbage. : )
