National Corned Beef and Cabbage Day

Date When Celebrated : Always March 17

If it is Saint Patrick's Day, then it must certainly also be National Corned Beef and Cabbage Day. This is no coincidence.

You may be surprised to learn, that Corned Beef and Cabbage is as American as Apple pie. A traditional recipe in Ireland was salt pork or a bacon joint with cabbage and/or potatoes. Beef is not popular in cooking in Ireland, as the ancient Celtic culture considered cows to be sacred, and cows were most often used as work animals on farms. In the mid 1800's, Irish immigrants to America, found their Jewish neighbors had corned beef, which was similar in taste, but much cheaper. So, the the American version of this easy to make Irish dish, became Corned Beef and Cabbage.

Recognizing that Corned Beef and Cabbage really originated in America, you may wonder if you can truly call it "Irish"? Well, of course it is! It was created by Irish  people. They just happened to be immigrants to the U.S..

Corned Beef is usually made from brisket or round roast, cured in a seasoned brine. Corned beef and cabbage recipes are easy to make. The basic ingredients are corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots, slowly stewed in water. Find a recipe

Origin of Corned Beef and Cabbage Day":

We did not find the creator of this day, or identify when it was created. We are certain it was an Irishman.... or woman.

Like so many other food holidays, this special day is referred to as a "National" day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations making this a true "National" day.
