Shamrock is the place to shop St. Patrick’s Day

The luck of the Irish is on your side when shopping Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse for St. Patrick’s Day. For starters, our Cobblestreet Corned Beef Brisket and Markon Shredded Cabbage Coleslaw are both on sale through the end of March.

For an alternative to Corned Beef and Cabbage (or to maximize leftovers!), a Cottage Pie is the way to go. Also made with Corned Beef Brisket and mixed with ingredients such as onions, carrots, celery and Worcestershire sauce to create a “filling”, it’s then topped with mashed potatoes and cheese before baking to golden goodness.

If Colcannon (Irish mashed potatoes) is on your menu, a quick visit to our produce and dairy sections for russet potatoes, kale, onions, butter and cream will supply everything you need for this creamy, comforting dish. And, speaking of potatoes, Boxty is an Irish potato pancake made by mixing grated potatoes into mashed potatoes before frying like a patty. Consider serving with an egg for breakfast, alongside a stew for dinner, or even just as an Irish snack.

For our bakers out there, Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread that rises without yeast and is made with standard baking ingredients like flour, baking soda and baking powder that you’ve likely already stocked up on at Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse. Just don’t forget to grab some Shamrock Farms Buttermilk to add flavor and help the loaf rise even higher.

Whatever meal you choose, trust Shamrock for all your St. Patrick’s Day meal needs. After all, with a name like Shamrock and our family-owned company’s founders hailing from Ireland 100 years ago, we know a thing or two about this leprechaun-loving holiday.
