Making a St. Patrick's Day recipe

A chef visits KARE 11 Saturday to show us how to make a classic Irish dish for St. Patrick's Day.

MINNEAPOLIS — Celebrate St. Patrick's Day all weekend long with music and giveaways at the Twin Cities' largest Irish Pubs: The Local Minneapolis, The Local West End and Kieran’s Irish Pub. 

An Irish pub is all about a warm atmosphere coupled with a strong community spirit—a place where strangers are only friends you haven't met yet. And nowhere is the soul of an Irish pub more apparent than during our favorite day of the year! Join us for all the craic there is to be had (that's Irish for FUN) and a hearty Slainte.

Graham Levine joined KARE 11 Saturday to show us a staple for St. Patrick's Day.
