For most people St. Patrick’s Day means enjoying a plate of corned beef and cabbage. Being a picky eater I never considered trying either. For some reason I assumed that corned beef wasn’t cooked, and I just plain wasn’t going to eat cabbage. The thought of eating it made me gag.
This St. Patrick’s Day I have the fact that I am on an adventure to try new foods as well as it falls on Day Four of my attempt to eat gluten free. I really had no reason not to try it, and every reason to give it a go.
I stopped in at Derry Hegarty’s pub to have a few drinks with friends before heading downtown to see Gaelic Storm. I got the corned beef and cabbage dinner, which came with potatoes and carrots. I figured I could at least eat the potatoes and carrots if nothing else.
I was told that the corned beef was a bit overdone, and the cabbage wasn’t as fresh as it could be, but surprisingly I liked both of them. The corned beef had a nice flavor to it, and the cabbage wasn’t nearly as gross as I imagined it would be.
I will definitely adding both to my list of foods to try again. I would love some suggestions on where I can get quality corned beef and cabbage.
