Peppered Cabbage for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is a VERY important holiday! Our last name is distinctively Irish-sounding and there are photos of ancestral homes in Ireland. Because of this, celebrating St. Patrick’s day has always been a BIG deal in Dave’s family. His parents always had a lot of fun with St. Pat’s day and years ago, his mom gave me a number of favorite recipes. I’ve tweaked the recipes quite a bit over the years to make them my own.

To be honest, a meal of corned beef and cabbage is WAY down the list for me, but these recipes are actually tasty and quite a treat. I’ll share how WE eat corned beef and cabbage as well as my favorite Irish soda bread. I’ll leave the making of the green beer to you.

Fried Peppered Cabbage

  • 1 medium head green cabbage, grated
  • 1/4 c. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. plain yogurt
  • lemon pepper

Heat olive oil in large non-stick skillet over high heat. Add the cabbage and saute, stirring constantly for about two minutes.

The cabbage will be heated through but not wilted. It should still be a little crunchy. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in yogurt. Season generously with lemon pepper.

And just a note on how St. Patrick’s Day works at OUR house….Dave does all the cooking and I sit back and watch!

  2. I’m trying to re-create an old favorite recipe of corned beef with a baked crust using a paste of mustard and brown sugar for it’s crust. Hoping yours will do it for me. Can you tell me the significance of The Rose of Tralee?
