  • Cook: 3 hr 30 min
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole coriander
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole mustard seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons whole allspice
  • 4 sprigs fresh marjoram
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 (2 1/2 to 3 pound) brisket
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, halved
  • 6 carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 1 head celery including leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 head garlic, halved
  • 3 sprigs fresh marjoram
  • 1 small cabbage cut into 6 to 8 wedges

Herbed Root Vegetables, recipe follows

Herbed Root Vegetables:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 pound new potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 pound baby carrots, trimmed and scrubbed
  • 1 pound baby turnips, trimmed and scrubbed
  • 1 pound baby parsnips, trimmed and scrubbed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Herb Butter:

  • 1/2 pound unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup mixed chopped fresh herbs like thyme, mint, chives, parsley, or chervil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Combine all the brine ingredients, except the brisket, in a large non-reactive bowl. Add the brisket (you may have to cut it into 2 pieces) and rub the spice mix into the meat. Pour cold water over until the meat is covered. Weight the brisket down with a small plate so that it is completely submerged; cover and refrigerate. The meat can be brined overnight or as long as 10 days. The longer the brining the more pickled the meat.
  • Heat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, marjoram, and bay leaves and cook until starting to soften, about 10 minutes. Remove the meat from the brine and rinse it well. Set the meat on top of the vegetables and add water to just cover the meat. Bring to a boil skimming any foam that surfaces. Reduce the heat to a simmer, place the lid on the pot, and cook for 15 minutes. Add the cabbage pieces, cover, and put it into the oven; cook for 3 hours.
  • Remove the meat, cover it with foil, and let it rest for 20 minutes. Cut the fat off the corned beef, slice the meat against the grain, and serve it in shallow bowls with the cabbage wedges, some cooking liquid, and the Herbed Root Vegetables.

Herb Butter:

  • Put the olive oil and butter into a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and toss to coat them well with the fat; season with salt and pepper. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover the pot, and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the Herb Butter by combining the soft butter and herbs together; season with some salt and pepper.
  • To serve, spread some Herb Butter in the bottom of a bowl. Add the hot vegetables and dot with more Herb Butter. Moisten with some of the cooking liquid and serve.

Guinness and Irish Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese

Recipe from: CelebratingSweets.com

  • Prep Time 30 minutes
  • Cook Time 20 minutes
  • Total Time 50 minutes
  • Servings 6 – 8

Ingredients:

Macaroni & Cheese:

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2/3 cup Guinness or other stout
  • 1 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 ounces cream cheese cut into pieces
  • 3 1/2 cups grated Irish cheddar divided (Kerrygold aged cheddar)

Topping (Optional):

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons finely minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley

Directions:

Topping (if using):

  • In a medium skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add garlic and breadcrumbs and cook, stirring frequently, until the breadcrumbs are lightly toasted and the mixture is fragrant. Remove from the heat, add salt and pepper to taste and minced parsley. Set aside.

Macaroni & Cheese:

  • Boil elbow macaroni in well salted water and cook until just al dente. Before draining the pasta, reserve a cup of the pasta water and set it aside (see note). While the pasta is cooking, prepare the cheese sauce:
  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and sprinkle in flour. Whisk together for a minute. While whisking, pour in Guinness, milk, half and half, salt, pepper, and mustard. Bring to a simmer and cook, whisking frequently, until it thickens slightly (several minutes). Add cream cheese and 2 1/2 cups grated cheddar and stir/whisk until completely smooth. Add drained, cooked pasta and stir to combine. Add remaining 1 cup grated cheddar and stir until melted (this will help achieve a stringy/cheesy texture). Transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls and sprinkle the top with the reserved toasted breadcrumbs. Serve immediately.

Recipe notes:

  • If the macaroni and cheese thickens up too much, add a little bit of the reserved pasta water (or additional milk) to make it creamy again.
