It's lent. So there's no real meat in this dish.
Mashed potatoes, however your family eats them.
Steamed cabbage-a whole head chopped and steamed above the water that is cooking the potatoes.
Sautee in some water or cocounut oil 2 large onions, sliced. When these are clear/caramelizing, add a package of mushroom slices, salt, pepper and two packages of Morning Star vegan breakfast links.
Let this cook with a lid on the skillet until the meat and mushrooms are done. Add some water and a bit more salt and some flour to thicken the gravy.
Serve this over the mashed potatoes and cabbage.
I make NO CLAIMS that this is authentic Irish food. I got the idea for this dish from something I ate a Molly Malone's-the (so-called) Irish Pub chain.
It was yummy. The real thing, of course, is yummier. But alas, not lenten.
