A Little Luck o' the Irish to You and a Recipe to Help You Celebrate!!

 Each year I celebrate my brother, Dick's, birthday by inviting him and his wife Jackie over for a Corned Beef dinner.  This year I glazed that Corned Beef with Orange Marmalade and Whiskey.  It was scrumptious!!

Orange Marmalade and Whiskey Glazed Corned Beef

This brisket couldn't be easier.  I cooked it up with potatoes and carrots in the crockpot.  When it was done cooking I brushed it with the glaze and placed it under the broiler for a few minutes.  How easy is that?!!

I usually have my Traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner a few days before St. Pat's Day as my brother spends the actual holiday and his birthday with his immediate family.  This year, since St. Pat's falls on a Friday, I am sharing some delicious Irish Fish Cakes with you tomorrow.  Stay tuned for that!!
