The luck of the Irish is your good fortune with these delicious recipes, which are perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Beef short ribs braised in stout make a comforting meal, especially when accompanied by colcannon, an Irish peasant dish of mashed potatoes embellished with cabbage, sautéed leeks, cream and butter. We also feature recipes for traditional soda bread and, of course, Irish coffee topped with a dollop of whipped cream.

    I highly recommend the Beef and Stout Pie. It is easy to make and tastes great. Make sure you have plenty of bread on hand as you will want to soak up every bit of the gravy.
