Hope you will be wearing the green tomorrow. It is getting hard for a Western Civilization group to celebrate ethnic holidays, but most everybody loves the Irish.

I started early and made my corned beef today.

However I did something special with the cabbage. I saw Iron Chef Michael Symon prepare this dish on video this morning. I tried it and it was delicious. It adds some texture and a layers of flavors

Humble cabbage gets a welcome lift from crispy bacon and a bottle of beer.

Heat a large dutch oven over medium high heat. Add the bacon, and cook until crisp. Add the onions with a pinch of salt, and cook until the onions are translucent (about 3-5 minutes).
2 Add the cabbage and beer with a large pinch of salt and cook, with a lid, until the cabbage is wilted but is still toothy. Stir in the mustard and vinegar and check for seasoning. You may want to add some additional salt, mustard, and vinegar here, depending on preference. Remove the cabbage from the heat and stir in the herbs.


Of course I decided to embellish and adding one finely diced Jalapeno Pepper and some leeks to the onions, but the basic recipe is just wonderful.

Sounds delicious. I have been fortunate to eat at Symon's restaurant in Cleveland - and to have met him. His food is always delicious and is prepared in such a way that it makes one rethink the particular ingredients in a new way.

I used to enjoy watching Michael Symon cooking Eastern European food on the Food Network. It seems he can do almost any kind of ethnic cooking.
