Corned Beef and Cabbage isn't Irish?

In the United States, consuming corned beef is a tradition often associated with Saint Patrick's Day, however corned beef is not actually considered to be an Irish national dish. The connection with the March 17th holiday specifically originates as part of Irish-American immigrant culture.

Irish-American immigrants used corned beef as a substitute for bacon in the late 19th century. Corned beef and cabbage is the Irish-American variant of bacon and cabbage, a much more well-known and popular Irish dish. During the Irish immigration to America, first generation of Irish-Americans sought the comforting tastes of their homeland, by resorting to what they could get their hands on. On St. Paddy's Day that meant boiled bacon. But, since the immigrants were too poor to afford the high price of pork and bacon products, they turned to the cheapest cut of meat available, which at that time was beef brisket.

Rather than boil the beef, the Irish adopted cooking methods from other cultures, which was easy to do in one of the largest melting pot cities of the time -- New York. Brining, or salt-curing meat, was an Eastern European technique that became popular. And if you're wondering where the term "corned" came from, it has nothing to do with corn. Instead, it refers to the corn-sized salt crystals used during the brining process. The post-brined beef was then paired with cabbage -- one of the cheapest vegetables available to the Irish immigrants at the time.

My family makes corned beef and cabbage like this every St. Patrick's day. It's possibly the only time of year we eat cabbage.

When I was growing up, my grandma always made angel food cake with peanut butter frosting. I have fond memories of helping her make the sweet treat when I went to visit.

My family always has ham for Christmas dinner. It always tastes super good, but there's only three of us so when we cook a whole ham we have a lot of leftover ham. That means we have a lot of ham meals after that. Eventually, we get really sick of ham. That's probably why we only eat ham around Christmas and sometimes Easter. Thanks for sharing about the Irish traditions. It was interesting to read. )

At least once a year my family spends all day making homemade German sausage and egg noodles. It has passed down from generation to generation and it's a super fun family activity.

My entire family is pretty particular about food and we all have different tastes. But we still find ways to cook together, especially during the holidays!

My family will spend all day Sunday prepping healthy meals for the week. It's a fun way to spend some quality family time!

how do you manage to make a corned beef in the slow cooker without having it turn into tough ropes? I can never slice a brisket cooked this way, it just falls apart :( any tips?

I only cooked it on low for 7 hours, yes any longer than that, it shreds!
