1. BBQ Beef Brisket Loaded Nachos

What better way to start the celebration than with nachos.

These are the perfect dish to share and add your own personality and flair.

What is better than to soak up the Guinness.

Smoking the brisket for a few days is best!


The brisket can be reheated and keep it in an airtight container after the cooking process.

Stack up these nachos as you desire and then bake until heated through.

Finish with fresh scallions.

Tip: You can replace the brisket with smoked chicken breasts should you choose if you don’t want to spend the whole day before cooking.

5. Smoked Corned Beef

I know the alcohol stereotypes are getting old quickly but this is yet another recipe that has beer in it!

Quick and simple so you can get to the day parade!

Enjoy the beautiful and tender meat in a sandwich the next day.

The umami flavors go well with any starchy side dish you have in store.

6. Corned Beef Hash

Have no fear this Saint Patrick’s day because this leftover dish ensures there is no wastage.

I thought I would include the hash so you have a plan for the morning after celebrating.

Use waxy Irish potatoes for the best results as the sugar in the starch will caramelize when roasting.

I like to use whatever veg is available but make it your own. Think about purple carrots or even a turnip for good measure!

Hot sauce and a good mustard powder will elevate it to a new level.

Cover in foil when cooking to lock in the moisture.

7.  Smoked Shepards Pie

Last but definitely not least, this tasty treat will wow your guests but does take a little more effort than some of our other recommendations.

If you haven’t tried a shepherd’s pie you are missing out.

This winter warmer is the epitome of comfort food.

 Be sure to save a slice for me and whatever you choose to do on Saint Patrick’s day, I hope you do it with loved ones.
