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.

makes one serving

1 slice of bacon, cut into small pieces
2 ramps, trimmed and cleaned
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and pepper to taste
4 spears asparagus, cleaned, trimmed and blanched
2 tablespoons goat cheese, crumbled

Cook the bacon in a pan over medium heat until crispy, about 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile chop the white parts of the ramps and slice the green parts thinly. Add the white parts of the ramps to the pan and saute for a minute. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Season the eggs with salt and pepper and pour them into the pan and top with the greens of the ramps, the asparagus and the goat cheese. Cook without disturbing until the eggs have set, about 2-4 minutes. Slide the omelette out of the pan and enjoy.

2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
1/3 pound lean, thick cut bacon, diced
1 small onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
4 to 6 ears fresh sweet corn on the cob, kernels scraped
2 tablespoons thyme, chopped
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese
black pepper, espelette or cayenne pepper, to taste
1 pound egg tagliatelle or fettuccine
chopped flat-leaf parsley and chives
grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, for serving

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Heat olive oil over medium high heat in large skillet, add bacon and crisp. Remove to a plate; add onions to the drippings and reduce heat a bit. Cook to soften then add garlic, corn and thyme; cook until corn just begins to lightly brown. Add stock, bring to a bubble and reduce a minute or so. Stir in mascarpone cheese and reduce heat to low. Salt boiling water and cook pasta to al dente. Add a ladle of starchy cooking water to the sauce, drain pasta and add to pan. Toss with corn sauce, bacon and a handful of cheese. Toss vigorously to combine and serve in shallow bowls with parsley and chives on top; pass extra cheese at table.
