What’s better than a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Finding your pot of golden savings, quality, value and everything you need to “sham-rock” St. Patrick’s Day at your local Strack & Van Til Food Market.
Looking for some authentic corned beef with your cabbage? The Strack & Van Til Meat Department carries corned beef brisket points and flats and corned beef round. Brands include Vienna corned beef round and Reuben’s corned beef flat. For all-natural beef, try Laura’s flat-cut brisket.
“For something completely different, Reuben Sausage is available in the Meat Department. It’s like the whole corned beef and kraut experience all wrapped up in a sausage,” says Meat Department Director Gary Teachman.”We also carry all the fixings — like Vienna fresh sauerkraut and Fran’s fresh sauerkraut — to make your meal a festive one.”
What’s as lucky as finding a four-leaf clover? That feeling when you indulge in delicious Irish cheeses in the Strack & Van Til Deli. Try Kerrygold brand imported varieties that make the ideal appetizer. There’s Blarney, a smooth and mild Gouda-style cheese; Dubliner aged cheese with a hint of sweetness; rich and creamy cheddar that’s been aged for 12 months; Reserve Cheddar, a cheese that’s aged for more than two years with a distinctively sharp flavor; sweet and nutty Swiss; and Skellig, a sweet cheddar.
“These cheeses come in a 7-ounce size, are found in the majority of our stores and pair perfectly with a great Irish stout, red ale or pale lager,” says Strack & Van Til Deli Director Kristin Snow. “We also carry Kerrygold Irish butters in our Dairy Department, a rich, creamy butter that perfectly complements our Irish soda bread.”
Celebrate the wearin’ o’ the green by saving meal prep time. The deli offers a selection of St. Patrick’s Day meal solutions, including Heat and Serve $7 corned beef meals with corned beef, cabbage, carrots and potatoes. You can also pick up a hot meal at our hot bars March 17 and 18.
Want to build your own sandwich creation such as corned beef and Swiss on rye or a delicious Reuben? The Deli Department has plenty of freshly sliced corned beef. If you prefer smaller sandwiches, try corned beef and Swiss sliders that make great party appetizers.
Don’t forget to add some sweetness to your St. Paddy’s Day celebration, with fresh, made-from-scratch bakery items from Strack & Van Til. Traditional Irish soda bread is baked in-store and made the way old-world bakers did: No yeast and hearty flavor.
Enjoy 8-inch single layer St. Paddy’s Day decorated cakes that are scratch-made in-store. Or, opt for sweet trays, including Famous Homestyle Cookie trays and green-and-white-sprinkled scratch-made butter cookies to put a smile on your little leprechauns’ faces.
“Kids of all ages will love our green and white decorated cupcakes,” says Strack & Van Til Bakery Director Tony Knight. “They’re so good that the 12-count package will disappear in an instant … and that’s no blarney!”
Round out your St. Patrick’s Day with other melt-in-your-mouth treats from the Bakery Department, including platters of rich and delectable scratch-made brownies.
An old Irish blessing says,
“May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness come through your door.”
Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day and enjoy all the delicious food from Strack & Van Til that you bring through your door.
