Banshee – Harp Bread



3 cups self rising flour ***
2 C sugar
1 Bottle of Harp beer

 Preheat the oven to 350°.

Mix the dry ingredients, and then add the beer.  This will fuzz up while mixing.  Put into a buttered bread pan and bake for 1 hour.

 This will work for any kind of beer and the more expensive and darker the richer. 


***If you don’t have self rising flour you can:

For every cup of flour needed add 1/2 tsp baking powder and 2 tsp. Salt. 


Banshee -Meat in the Irish Mist



 4  Sirloin steaks

2 cup Thick cream (whipping cream)

2 Tablespoons of Irish Mist Liqueur

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons Butter


1 large onion sliced thin

1 C sliced button mushrooms (don’t use the ones you find in the meadow unless a leprechaun gives you the thumbs up)

Freshly ground pepper 

Remove the sirloin steaks from the bone, and season with salt and pepper.  Heat a pan too very hot and add the olive oil and the butter, when it is hot and crackley add the steaks and cook for 4-5 minutes (or more if you want them cooked well) on each side. 

Remove and keep warm on a platter.  Turn down the heat and add the sliced onion and mushrooms, when the onions are soft add the cream to the juices in the pan, and whisk all of the goodies about, then add the Irish Mist, stir and pour over the steaks.
