Beer Brined Corned Beef Sliders with Pickled Cabbage Slaw

 Beer Brined Corned Beer Sliders with Pickled Cabbage Slaw 

Conred Beef Sliders with Pickled Cabbage Slaw3

I just turned my completed book into my publisher.

One hundred recipes, along with sixty-five photos, are now out of my hands. You’d think I’d be relieved, so did I, but I’m worried. I just let go of the summation of 90 percent of my waking hours from the past 4 months. It’s in someone else’s care, and that scares the crap out of me.

I have these momentary panics:

Did I make the pavlovas enough, do the directions make sense?

I say jackass in the book, will people hate that?! 

Was I clear about how grateful I am for this, or will I come off as smug?!

I even worry about whether or not you’ll like it, as if I’m just an insecure school girl. I thought I would be relieved and elated, but I’m more anxious than I’ve been during this entire process. I want people to love it, to leave me glowing reviews on Amazon and tell their friends about how much they love it. I hope that happens, but for now, I’m still losing sleep.

For the time being, I have a St. Patricks Day recipe for you. I posted my veggie lovers St Patricks Day offering last week, but this one is about that corned beef we all associate with that Irish Holiday.

So if you will, drink a pint and say an Irish prayer for me and my forthcoming book.

    I am sure your cookbook will be awesome! :) Your personality is sure to shine through. I can’t wait to see it.

    BTW, this recipe looks delicious too! I’ve never actually made corned beef but this makes it look rather easy :)

  6. Denise March 5, 2013 at 10:37 am #

    Once again, this looks amazing. I’m all for DIY foodstuffs, why buy packaged corned beef when you can make it yourself. And who knew it would be so easy?! This is going on my table this weekend.

    And, add my name to the list of people counting down days until your book hits the shelves. Thank YOU for sharing your love of cooking with beer!

  10. Katie @ Blonde Ambition March 5, 2013 at 2:54 pm #

    Corned beef is one of my favorite meals, my part Irish mom makes it every year! The addition of beer sounds great, and it’s totally appropriate given the nature of the holiday :)

    I’m so looking forward to your book, and since I always enjoy your blog I doubt there’s anything you could say in the book that would deter me!

    • Jackie March 5, 2013 at 6:38 pm #

      Katie, you’re the sweetest :)

  11. Belinda @themoonblushbaker March 6, 2013 at 7:01 am #

    i raise my glass to you jackie, i wish you all the best with your book and future with publishing. I am sure to make this for my feast this st Patrick’s, even though i live in Australia ( any excuse to drink).
    What would you suggest (drink) to go with this?

  12. ashley - baker by nature March 6, 2013 at 8:28 am #

    Jackie!!!! GO YOU! I am so excited for you, darling!!! And um, really?! These slider look ridiculously amazing! Ridic!

  13. Kelly Senyei | Just a Taste March 6, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

    Call me crazy, but I don’t drink beer, and yet I will eat anything and everything cooked/soaked/braised/bathed in brew. These look like a great way to tickle the taste buds.

    • Jackie March 6, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

      It’s a pretty great way to consume beer!Especially meat. And chocolate cake, of course :)

  14. Danielle @ The Growing Foodie March 6, 2013 at 5:44 pm #

    Congrats on the book!!! That is so amazing and I, for one, can’t wait to read it :)

    • Jackie March 6, 2013 at 7:05 pm #

      Thank you!

  15. Jenna March 6, 2013 at 6:53 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to make a sandwich with corned beef lately. I have been going back and forth between grilled or a slider. Leeks or slaw. This looks wonderful, I will definitely give it a try.

  16. Nicole @ youngbrokeandhungry March 7, 2013 at 12:37 am #

    I know how you feel. I pour my heart and soul in my novels but the hard part is letting them out of my grasp into somebody else’s. But if your cookbook is anything like your blog, full of tasty recipes which I am sure it is, then don’t worry. You have enough loyal readers to guarantee a hit.

  17. Jen @ Savory Simple March 7, 2013 at 5:45 am #

    Congratulations on the book! Such an amazing accomplishment :) These look crazy good.

      Thank you so much for the offer! Your beer looks fantastic. I generally only blog about US based beer, since that’s where I live. But I look forward to making over to the UK soon and stopping in for a pint!
