It’s no surprise we’re sharing a somewhat traditional Irish meal today. Most of the world is recognizing St. Patrick’s Day and we’re no different. We love green, Shamrocks, four-leaf clovers and I suppose most of you enjoy beer from time to time.
While Irish food is not generally known for robust flavors or being a diverse cuisine, I found some inspiration to create this beer-based beef in some chatter I had with friends on Twitter. I’m not a beer drinker so it was especially fun making the meat and tasting it along the way. I underestimated the flavor of the full-bodied stout, hence a super-quick boil to reduce it down some was necessary. The result was a great balance of healthy and light cabbage and aromatic beef achieved with some of my pantry staples.

Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.
