I like corned beef and cabbage, but I prefer Colcannon, so I chose "other."

Mmm, is Corn Beef Irish?

No:

The commonly-held belief that corned beef and cabbage is an Irish dish is incorrect. Corned beef is an Irish-American innovation to the traditional dish of bacon and cabbage, where corned beef was used as a replacement for the bacon joint when immigrants had difficulty buying it due to a combination of inaccessibility and cost.

Yes, I'm bored. But at least I'm learning stuff.

Thank you!!! My Irish grandfather never ate this stuff back home. Much of what is celebrated in America under St. Patrick's Day has been exaggerated. First and foremost, it's a religious holiday, not a day to get drunk and stupid (thanks, America).

Corned beef is Jewish, lol. Seriously, it is. So is Pastrami.

Oh, to answer the question, Sheppard's Pie, which is English.

Steak and ale pie MMmm. I do find it amusing that on the whole St Patricks day passes quietly over here but you Americans go MAD for it.  ;D

Hmph!

It seems to get more attention in England than St. George's Day, which I think is a bit out of order...

From the above...steak and Guinness (preferably served separately!)

Not included up above is Black & White Pudding...the ingredients of which are somewhat 'interesting'!

Yeah I agree.  On Saturday I saw quite a few people with Guiness top hats on or green face paint etc. I bet they don't dress up like John Bull in April.

It's only cos of Guiness promotions though, give a Brit a free drink and he'll wear anything.

Since I'm English, I don't celebrate St Patrick's Day, but I do like Shepherd's Pie. Last Saturday I didn't eat any Irish food; just cereal for breakfast, a Monterey Melt Baguette Meal at Burger King for lunch and a chicken salad sandwich in the evening.

I know I'm a day late and a dollar short, but in the South Jersey area there are a few places that will serve
Corned Beef and Cabbage but most places serve Ham and Cabbage. I can't take the smell of either let alone
eat it. :P


edit to add:

The only thing Irish I will eat is an American-Irish stew served in a soda bread bowl.

It's both.  It's born in the river, goes to sea and then comes back up the river to breed.  You can see them jumping up the waterfalls in Scotland.

I'm going to try making Colcannon and maybe some Irish bread.  We had the International Festival yesterday.  I had the Scotland & Ireland tables.  Of course everyone asked where the Guiness was (yeah, right).  Someone told me that corned beef & cabbage isn't really an Irish dish, but since I don't like it, no worries.  However, someone suggested Colcannon and the wife brought me the recipe today, so maybe I'll check it out.  Anyone ever have it?
