Every March, when St. Patrick's Day rolls around, people all across the United States start digging out recipes for how to make corned beef. Corned beef is a beef brisket cured in large grains of salt (called "corns," hence the name). While its association with the Irish holiday is cemented in American culture, corned beef and cabbage is not actually the national dish of Ireland. In fact, the average Irish diet didn't even include beef until the 1900s. Corned beef was a delicacy beyond the reach of most common folk, largely because salt was so expensive and also because in those days the Irish kept cattle primarily for dairy.
Although you won't typically find corned beef and cabbage at a St. Patrick's Day celebration in Ireland, here in America it's all the rage. For me, the Irish duo turned into an excuse to try out a new obsession.
Knowing how to cook corned beef is almost a mandatory skill if you have even a drop of Irish blood in your veins. Corned beef is a quintessential American Irish tradition, although many Americans only eat it once a year, on St. Patrick's Day. Corned beef was one of Ireland's main exports until 1825; County Cork was the largest producer for many decades. The British Army often survived on cans of it during their many and bitter campaigns across Europe. Today, however, corned beef is far more popular in America than it is in Ireland.

If you've ever had a steaming bowl of lamb stew or a hearty plate of corned beef and cabbage at an Irish pub, it's likely your meal was served with soda bread.

That's what you've got to love about the great American melting pot: even if you're not an O'Brien or O'Malley, you can still get into the spirit of St. Patrick's Day. (Because for so many of us, we basically just assume that there's some Irish on our family tree somewhere anyway.)
