Corned Beef FAQ’s
Do they really eat corned beef and cabbage in Ireland?
I’ve often wondered about this. My dad was from Ireland, with his thick Irish brogue and all, and we always had to have our corned beef and cabbage dinner on St. Patrick’s Day.
But truth be told, the traditional dinner eaten in Ireland is lamb or bacon, not corned beef. Go figure!
Is corned beef really Irish?
Actually corned beef was served as a substitution for bacon in the later part of the 19th century by Irish-American immigrants.
Corned beef is not a national dish in Ireland and has been associated with Saint Patrick’s Day only as part of the Irish-American culture here in the United States.
I sure am happy that it is because it’s such a delicious way to celebrate the holiday!
