Better with Bacon – Corned Beef & Cabbage

In anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day, Bobby Flay was on “The Early Show” this morning with his spin on traditional corned beef and cabbage. Of note, his liberal use of bacon!

In fact his strategy of cooking the corned beef directly in bacon fat is something I think I am going to be trying when I cook up my next filet at the house…I’ll let you know how that works out.

Anywho, back to Bobby’s recipe. I was going to post but I fear the wrath of CBS Corporation so instead here is the video (which they allow to be embedded) and you’ll have to click on through for the recipes.

You Temptress…

Eagle eye Aimee (SHOUT OUT) found this in the bargain bin (the bargain bin, really?) at Borders


$4.99?!?  I will make you mine book, I WILL make you mine…

About the book:

Our love affair with bacon is passionate and enduring.

Even its smell can transport us back to comforting times, and it has a taste like no other. Bacon evokes memories of caramel, wood fires, and mouth-watering home-cooked meals. Oh, those delectably succulent, salty, crunchy morsels!

Almost every dish can be made better with bacon. Not only does it flatter savories, it’s an admirable complement to sweets as well. Seduced by Bacon offers sensuous dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and any time in between. Entice your guests with Pecan Waffles smothered in a Caramel-Bacon Sauce, arouse all your senses with an Open-Faced Cheddar & Turkey Bacon Sandwich with Beer-Glazed Onions, and finally, bewitch your taste buds with a French Apple Tart with Cheddar Cheese Crust & Sweet Brittle Topping.

Every cook and connoisseur–in fact, anyone who eats–will savor the delectable recipes, tantalizing photographs, and fascinating bits of “baconry” in this fresh and innovative cookbook.
