The recipe for this traditional Irish dish calls for brining beef brisket for 5 days to "corn" it. If you want to omit this step, buy 5 lbs. of corned beef from your butcher and proceed to step two.
To make this dish, ask your butcher for corned beef made with the “silverside” of the round.
This is a hearty Irish variation on steak and kidney pie, made with the island nation’s most famous beer.
