Saint Patrick's Day Party Menu Suggestions

Corned Beef and Cabbage

No Saint Paddy's Day celebration would be complete without a big pot of Corned Beef and Cabbage simmering on the stove. This delicious dish is very easy to make and only requires a few ingredients (a corned beef brisket, new potatoes, carrots, and cabbage). A simple recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage is available on the website.

Irish Stew

Consider preparing a large pot of Irish Stew to serve at your party. This tasty beef and potato dish is a traditional Irish favorite that is very appropriate for any Saint Patrick's Day celebration. There are several ways to make this hearty and flavorful dish. There's a terrific recipe on featuring a rich sauce made with both Guinness beer and red wine.

Irish Soda Bread

If you're looking for something to serve along with your Irish Stew or Corned Beef and Cabbage entrée, consider preparing a side dish of homemade Irish Soda bread. This delicious bread is not difficult at all to make and does not require yeast or rising time. See for a terrific recipe that even inexperienced cooks can make successfully.

Reuben Sandwiches

Reuben sandwiches are also a popular choice for Saint Paddy's Day celebration. These tasty treats are easy to make and are a certain hit. To make Reuben sandwiches, all you need is sliced corned beef, sauerkraut, sliced Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island Dressing. To make a Reuben, simply place a slice of Swiss cheese on a piece of rye bread, top with several slices of corned beef, and spoon drained sauerkraut on top of the meat. Spread Thousand Island dressing on a second piece of rye bread and place it on top of the sandwich base. That's all there is to it. You can serve the sandwich cold or melt butter in a pan or griddle and brown the sandwich on both sides to enjoy a grilled Reuben.

Adult Beverages

If you plan to serve adult beverages, consider serving the traditional green beer, which is nothing more than your favorite variety of beer enhanced with a few drops of green food coloring. Other theme-appropriate beverages include lovely green appletinis any type of cocktail made with Bailey's Irish cream liqueur.
