St. Patrick’s Day – Utica NY
Corned Beef and Cabbage also known as boiled dinner is an American food creation.
Bacon and Cabbage is really the traditional Irish Dinner.
Back in the day in Ireland, meat was not always available to a lot of people, and if it was, pork was the meat often found. Not having refrigeration the pork was made into bacon by curing it in a brine solution to preserve it. With the emigration to America, Irish families found that beef was readily available and affordable. Corned beef as we now it today was a product of traditional Irish food preparation. Beef was brined the way pork meat was to make bacon.
