    This is a gluten free St. Patrick’s Day Dinner including organic, grass fed beef, mashed potatoes, and a new twist on irish cabbage.

    Corned Beef

    for 4

    All ingredients are organic

    4 lb brined, hormone-free, anti-biotic free, grass-fed brisket
    4 cloves garlic, peeled
    1 onion, halved, peeled
    2 bay leaves
    2t allspice berries
    2t peppercorns
    1t thyme
    1t coriander
    4 star anise pieces
    ½ t cloves

    1. Place brisket in a large pot, fat side up, cover with cold water.

    2. Bring to a boil.

    3. Once boiling, cover, lower to simmer, cook for 3 ½ to 4 hours or until it separates with a fork, adding water as needed to keep meat covered.

    4. Remove from water; cut across grain to serve.

    Mashed Potatoes


    Serves 4
    All ingredients are organic
    5-6 yukon gold potoatoes, peeled, quartered
    1 leek sliced lengthwise
    1 qt. vegetable of chicken stock
    Sea salt
    Fresh ground pepper
    Milk—or dairy free alternative
    Butter—or dairy free alternative

    1. While you peel the potatoes, soak leek in cold water to remove any grit that might be at the base.

    2. If using a ricer, cut the leek into 1” lengths. If using a hand masher, don’t cut so you can easily separate them from the potoatoes.

    3. Place potatoes and leek in cold broth, bring to a boil. Cook for 15 minutes, or until fork tender.

    4. Place small amounts of potato and leek into ricer and press, or mash potatoes only with hand masher until smooth.

    5. Stir with wooden spoon, adding butter and milk until creamy (usually about 2T of each)—DO NOT MAKE PASTE! Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Irish-ish Cabbage

    Serves 4
    All ingredients are organic
    3 baby bok choy, sliced,
    1 med. Head Napa cabbage, sliced
    ¼ c wheat-free Tamari
    ½ c dark Irish-style beer (Guinness style)(For GF- beer must read GF on the label so use McSorley’s or Smithwick’s)
    2 T butter—use dairy free if needed (the mixture of butter and Tamari is truly delicious!)
    Fresh ground black pepper

    1. Wash the cut cabbage. Don’t worry about drying the leaves; you’re going to use it to steam the cabbage.

    2. Place cabbage directly into a wok. Add Tamari, beer, pepper. Sauté until limp, about 3-4 minutes.
    3. Remove from heat and stir in the butter.

    4. Place all three dishes on a Serving Platter and serve immediately.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
