St. Patrick's Day Recipes: Whiskey Glazed Steak In Just FOUR Ingredients!

Mariko Laugh

This year, try something different that your traditional Corned Beef. Choose organic or grass fed cuts; natural beef is lower in fat, high in Omega 3s and a great source of iron. If you want a non-dairy variation, substitute the cream for a Stout beer.

· 4 fillet steaks, 5-6 ounces each. Seasoned with salt & pepper (experiment with different meats like buffalo or chicken)
· ¼ cup Irish whiskey
· ¼ cup beef stock
· ¼ cup cream

Heat a large, heavy pan over high heat, and cook steaks until desired doneness. Move steaks to plate, and reduce heat to simmer. Add whiskey, and deglaze the pan (combining all the steak bits and juices) then add cream and broth. Bring sauce to boil until thick (about a minute), pour over steaks, garnish with fresh ground pepper and enjoy!

St. Patrick's Day Recipes: Irish Shortbread With Chocolate Ganache Made With Only FOUR Ingredients!

Filed under: RecipesMariko Amekodommo

Markio Knives

This light and crispy cookie is the perfect end to your St. Patrick's Day feast, and is delicious with Irish coffee! Feeling fancy? Create your own unique combinations by adding 1/2 cup dried fruit or nuts. This recipe calls for Irish Butter; made from the milk of grass-fed cows, it has a richer flavor and higher Omega / vitamin / mineral content. If you can't find Irish butter, substitute regular!

1 cup (2 sticks) Irish better, at room temperature
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/2 cups flour (plus extra for rolling out)
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar with electric mixer until well combined. Gradually add flour and mix until a ball is formed. Transfer dough to floured cutting board, and use a rolling pin to roll dough about 1/4 inch thick. Make into shapes using your favorite cookie cutter (I like a classic round for my shortbread) and bake on parchment lined baking sheet for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. In small bowl, add chocolate chips and microwave 45 seconds, stirring every 10 seconds until melted. Dip half of shortbread in chocolate, and place on parchment until hardened. Enjoy!

Watermelon is great for a Fit Lifestyle: its high in A, C and B vitamins, antioxidants and beta-carotene to fight cancer, and fiber for losing weight. Watermelon is always the sweetest at the end of the summer, so enjoy it while you can. This light and refreshing soup is the perfect appetizer or between meal snack.

4 cups cubed, seeded watermelon (a mini personal seedless watermelon is the perfect size)
