Recipes from Today’s Show: St. Patrick’s Day

Published by

TODAY on MHTV: Many families cook a traditional Irish meal on St. Patrick’s Day, and this year I’m joining in. Normally, corned beef takes a long time to prepare so I came up with my own version that’s not brined, pickled, boiled or dyed; I call it “uncorned” beef. A slow braise in beer and oj, plus chunks of beets, give the meat its signature color and flavor. I like to use the leftovers to make a Reuben-style sandwich complete with melted cheese and Russian dressing. More from the show.

    I’ve managed to catch most of your shows thanks to TiVo. Your style of cooking and explaining things are very relaxed and fit everyday life. I save the ones that I think my husband would enjoy and we watch them together. He always makes comments about the easy way you cook and loves that its everyday type food like we eat and how casual everything is. Can’t wait to try this uncorned beef recipe since I’ve just started liking cooked beets but I haven’t convinced my husband to try them yet, maybe this recipe will do the trick. Please keep up the great shows.
