Whether culturally accurate or not, one can hardly celebrate St. Patrick’s Day without corned beef, cabbage and a green-tinted brew. Unfortunately, most renditions of the presumed ‘Irish favorite’ have more to offer as decoration than nutrition. Rather than resort to another tasteless version of the old standard St. Paddy’s fare, we’ve created our own interpretation that’s sure to be a favorite for years to come.
