We’re tipping our hat to the Emerald Isle with this gourmet Irish-American fare. The corned beef and cabbage typically served on St. Patrick’s Day is actually a reinvented Irish dish, modified by immigrants to use local American ingredients. In our version, we’re serving steaks coated in a corned beef-inspired, custom blend of spices. (Corned beef refers to the “corns” of salt once used to preserve the meat, but the seasoning has evolved to include spices like coriander and crushed juniper berries.) With sides of braised cabbage and buttery red potatoes, this dish is a trans-Atlantic classic.

In a large pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the carrots and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened.
