Why I Love This Recipe

My mom's side of the family immigrated from Ireland just before World War I. Staying connected with family was a cornerstone of family traditions. Family dinner night was an extension of this. This dinner according to my Grandmother was a mandatory event with the exception for military deployments or first responders in our family. At least twice a month we come together to have dinner (zoom attendance or a phone call during dinner has occurred for family members that are not local). My Grandmother would make sure the tradition occurred despite physical distance. Our rule when not physically able to be there was to cook and eat the same meal as well. My grandmother is no longer with us but the dinners still occur. This particular recipe was actually my Great Grandmother's that has been passed on in our family, and was one of the first dishes she learned to make America.
