It’s not too early to start thinking about St. Patrick’s Day (seriously). Make sure to include traditional corned beef and cabbage for your celebration. And perhaps a pint of Guinness. We’ll get you started with this delicious recipe. Enjoy!
• 1 – 6 pound corned beef
• Brown Sugar
• 1 Can of Beer (optional)
• Dijon Mustard
Method: Place the raw corned beef with all the spices from the package into a large pot. Add hot water so that the corned beef is completely covered. Add beer (optional), and cover. Bring water to a “rolling” simmer (almost a boil) and cook for 2.5 to 3 hours. Remove the corned beef from pot making sure that all the spices have been removed. (They gave all they had to give!)
Add quartered cabbage wedges and carrots to the water and boil until just tender. Place the meat on a broiler pan. Diamond-score the meaty side of the corned beef about 1 to 1.5 inches apart and ¼” deep. Prepare the Dijon Glaze as follows.
Mix to taste brown sugar, Dijon mustard, and a little honey. The Dijon mustard is the key to this glaze mix. Liberally smooth the glaze over the top of the meaty side of the corned beef.
Turn broiler on to finish the corned beef in the oven. Carefully watch the corned beef as the glaze begins to bubble. Just as it starts to turn a dark brown in the lower areas of the corned beef, it’s ready to come out. Let the corned beef rest a few minutes before slicing.
Thinly slice the corned beef and serve with the cabbage and carrots, or make a hot corned beef sandwich on mixed grain rye bread.
Angus Meat’s corned beef is great cold too! Make a Ruben and Sauerkraut sandwich, or serve thin slices with your favorite crackers, Swiss cheese and sweet hot mustard.
