St. Patrick’s Day is coming up this weekend! And while we have nothing against the responsible enjoyment of some Jameson’s or a green beer or two, we think it’s a great occasion to try some tasty traditional Irish meals. The team at 35 West’s Moore OK apartments love great recipes, so we nearly started dancing a jig when we came across this treasure trove of Classic Irish Recipes on Bon Appétit Magazine’s website. They’re all simple and straightforward enough to whip up in the ample kitchens of our Moore, OK apartments…No lucky charms required. Try out our four favorites below and your Irish eyes (and belly) will surely be smiling.
Favorite Irish Recipes From The Cooks at 35 West’s Moore, OK Apartments
The first items on your shopping list for these recipes should be a good Irish Stout beer and some Jameson’s Irish whiskey – both of which are fine year-round staples for any Moore, OK dwelling. You’ll need both beverages to make Dublin Iced Coffee, which will provide you the energy and fortitude to make the next three dishes. A delicious mix of caffeine, dessert, and danger, Dublin Iced coffee might make you want to celebrate St. Patty’s day every weekend. Mix coffee, stout, whiskey, and simple syrup in a highball glass. Add ice to fill. Gently pour in cream so it gradually sinks into coffee; sprinkle with cinnamon. Wow!
This one can be a hearty side or a meal all by itself. Lentils and fresh and dried mushrooms give this vegetarian casserole its meaty character. You can prepare most of it in advance and bake it just before your guests arrive.
This recipe is a two-step process, but nothing about it is difficult. Start by cooking the beef the day before (if you also want to have it for dinner that night, just double the recipe). It’s chilled overnight, becoming even more flavorful. The next day, shred the cooked corned beef and throw the hash together. Then bask in your accomplishment. For a convenient cowboy-style twist, run down to your favorite BBQ joint near your Moore, OK apartments and grab some brisket in place of the corned beef.
Lastly, who could forget desert? What you can forget with this desert is the milk—stout is the perfect pairing for this cake. Serve glasses of the same brew you used in the cake batter. Take it up a notch by adding a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream to the beer for a grown-up float. Best St. Patrick’s Day ever!
