Corned Beef and Cabbage I
"What's more Irish than a traditional recipe for corned beef and cabbage?" The answer is - lots of things! Corned beef and cabbage is not a traditional Irish dish. Born and bred in Ireland, I was in my 50's when I spent some time in the US and was told that everyone eats corned beef and cabbage on St. Paddy's Day. I had never heard of it and I still have never tasted it. When I came home from that trip I did ask around, in case I somehow had missed this vital part of Irish tradition, but, no, I have yet to come across any Irish national who has actually eaten corned beef and cabbage. Further research has taught me that, in fact, Irish immigrants to America began eating corned beef, which they bought from Jewish butchers, because of their new-found affluence. At home, in Ireland, it was only the very wealthy who could afford to eat beef. So, eating corned beef on Paddy's Day is really an American-Irish-Jewish tradition.
