Book of Irish Recipes

A new Irish Cookbook was released last month written by Cathal Armstrong and David Hagedorn. I came across it reading an interview the author Armstong gave to Reuters’ Richard Leong.  Dublin-born Cathal Armstrong a celebrated chef of several Washington D.C. area restaurants responds to the following question:

“Q: What is your “go to” ingredient at home?

A:  Sriracha sauce”   I love it! The entire interview is linked at the bottom.

We’re are happy to hear spicy condiments are working their way into Irish fare more and more. I’m not sure if there are any spicy recipes in the book but we will be sending some complimentary McCoy’s Thick Hot Irish Sauce to one of their restaurants.   Also, we will be buying the book and hope you do too.  It’s on Amazon here

Easter and food go hand in hand in Ireland and It’s not just chocolate that takes centre place. Easter Sunday is about all the family gathered round together for a big meal, to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We came across these cooking videos created by The Irish Store and thought with this week being Easter Week it was the perfect time to show you some traditional Irish cooking set in a beautiful Irish country kitchen. What will you be cooking this Easter Sunday?

#srirachapocalypse Buy McCoy’s Thick Hot Irish Sauce instead!

The Califoria Department of Health has issued an order to stop Sriracha hot sauce from being shipped for at least 30 days. This is to comply with food safety regulations.

According to reports there will not be any Sriracha shipped until mid-January. This very popular sauce is used in many ways and a replacement will be needed in the event of it’s shortage.

Have no fear, this is the perfect time to try something new.  McCoy’s THIS can be used in many ways to liven up any dish and some drinks. Bloody Mary anyone?

Guinness Brisket Marinade Recipe

Guinness Brisket

If you like the taste of Guinness, believe it or not a lot people don’t. It has a very dark bold taste. However if you truly love the taste of Guinness you will love this brisket marinade recipe.  You can literally taste the Guinness in the meat after it’s cooked.

Get yourself a nice 1.5 – 2lb brisket and a big plastic container to hold the brisket and the below marinade contents and let it sit at least three hours. I let mine site literally over night.  Cook your brisket however you normally do following meat temperature safety standards.  As you can see in the image I posted I cooked mine slow over an oak wood fire pit. I left the brisket wrapped tight in aluminum foil with a lot of the marinade in the foil. Once it was cooked I unwrapped it and cooked it exposed to get some crisp bbq flavor on the outside. If you try this take pics, and let us know how it went.

Ingredients:

1 bottle Guinness

2 cups Coke

2 tablespoons Minced Garlic

1 tablespoon parsley

1 tablespoon cilantro

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon of dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper
