St. Patrick’s Day Menu!

St. Patty’s Day is upon us.   And, what better way to celebrate than to EAT!   So, here are a couple of traditional St. Patty’s Day’s recipes from Earth Fare’s recipes for you to try and share!

 Homemade Corned Beef


  • 4-8 lbs brisket, fat trimmed to 1/4 inch or so
  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spices
  • 1 tsp peppercorns (I used a mixture of red, black, white, green, pink)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 2 c kosher salt
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 16 cups water


Rub the meat with 1/4 cup salt.  Place in a large glass pan.  Sprinkle with the pickling spice, peppercorns, bay leaves and garlic.  Bring remaining salt and sugar to a boil in the 16 cups water, stir until dissolved.  Pour over meat.  Weigh meat down under the brine, and leave for 3 to 5 days.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: Three to five days


Irish Lamb Stew


  • 2 pounds boneless lamb cubed, browned, and drained

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut in 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 small onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 10 ounces frozen peas


Sprinkle browned lamb cubes with salt and pepper. Place lamb in the crockpot along with water, bay leaf, carrots, onions and potatoes. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours, adding peas to the stew during the last hour.
