There are few places in the world that I would absolutely love to visit if I had a free luxury class plane ticket to anywhere. I say “luxury” simply because the last time I flew (Alaska to Hawaii and back), I felt like a sardine in a can. It was one of the most miserable experiences I had had in a long time. One of those places I would love to visit includes Ireland.

I may not get the chance to go there, but my son lived in Europe for a few years and he went on a weekend trip to Ireland. While there, he headed to the Guinness factory for a tour, walked around seeing the sights, and enjoyed a wonderful little adventure.

You can get your own little taste of Ireland with this delicious soup. Often when people think of Irish beef & cabbage soup, they immediately think of corned beef. This recipe doesn’t go that route, instead it uses a good bit of nice, tender roast. You’ll love this soup!

May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
