Corned beef is one of my favorite meals. It’s such a traditional, festive dish and we enjoy it a couple times per year. My family makes it different than most because ours has a brown sugary glaze on the top. This glaze does for corned beef what Honeybaked does for ham. 🙂
This simple glaze is easy to put together, you probably have the ingredients on hand, and it only takes a few extra minutes. This is the only way I’ve had corned beef for years, and now it’s the only way I’ll eat it. It goes great with a side of potatoes, carrots and cabbage. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.
¼ Cup Packed Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
Corned beef brisket
*glaze recipe is for 5 lb brisket
- Put your brisket in a pot, cover it with water, and bring the water to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer for approximately 4 hours, until tender.
- Remove the brisket from water, scrape off the fat and let it sit for approximately 30 minutes.
- Mix together brown sugar and mustard and spread it evenly over the top of the brisket.
- Put the brisket under the broiler until the glaze just starts bubble (do not brown). Remove from oven, let it rest for about 10 minutes, then slice and serve. Enjoy!
