No St. Patrick's Day celebration in the U.S. would be complete without corned beef and cabbage. It's a comforting and familiar dish, but while many may like the idea of having corned beef and cabbage as part of the festivities, when the time comes to actually sit down and eat it, the dish often loses all appeal. Sometimes thought of as a bit bland, this simple fare simply fails to get most people's hearts racing anymore. And that's no surprise — it's probably safe to say that in today's food-obsessed culture, people have come to expect more sophistication out of the things they cook at home.
