Our best St Patrick's Day recipes

Here are the Irish-inspired recipes you’ll need, whether you’re off to a parade, a party, or simply staying at home on St Patrick's Day.

Corned Beef

Corned beef and cabbage is classic St. Patrick’s Day fare. The meat is really just brisket that’s been cured in salt and spices, then braised until tender. As it’s now too late to “corn” your own beef (this would take up to 5 days of brining), pick up a brined, uncooked corned beef, and cook it in a saucepan, a slow cooker, or in the oven. Leftover corned beef is great in a Reuben, Irish-style tacos, or in red flannel hash.


Stews and Casseroles

The Irish love their stews and casseroles, a comforting one-pot staple that features meat cooked low and slow until it is ultra-tender. Mutton was originally used for stews in Ireland, but nowadays, lamb is the meat of choice. Potatoes, onions and sometimes carrots round out the dish.


Lamb Roasts

The smell of a roasting spring lamb, with garlic and rosemary, fills the kitchens of countless Irish families over Sunday. We’ve pulled together some of our favourite roast lamb recipes that wouldn't look out of place in an Irish home.


Lamb Shanks and Slow-cooked Beef

The Irish love their hearty, tender and flavorsome slow-cooked meals. Especially lamb shanks and slow-cooked beef. It’s the perfect way to warm up a cold day or wash down a cold beer (or in some cases warm one).



The humble pie is the perfect accompaniment to a day of celebrating (whether it’s at home with friends or family, or down at the local pub). We’ve pulled together a collection of pies that wouldn’t be out of place on the dinner table of any Irish household.



Like stews, soups are a comfort food that is enjoyed in many parts of Ireland. The best Irish soups are hearty and loaded with healthy servings of potatoes and vegetables.
