It is a simple but flavorful dish that is a staple of many Irish households and a favorite of many Irish people. *Author Notes* You can boil the potatoes but steamed keeps them firmer"

I meant to make this to go with another corned beef brisket I made, but we just had too many potatoes from other meals!! This is a great basic potato dish, and I can see it going with a nice juicy steak or doesn't have to go with Irish food!!

I've never made mashed potatoes with this method and they turned out very good. I like the green onion in the potatoes... it's a nice way to serve them when I'm not making gravy! Made as directed, for Billboard Tag.
