Corned Beef for St. Paddy’s

Make this once and you won’t need any other corned beef recipe... ever. And did I mention it’s simple... cuz it’s only 4 ingredients.


Serves 6 to 8

But make sure to save some for sandwiches the next day...

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 corned beef - about 4 pounds, the kind from the supermarket with the little packet of spices included
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 1/4 cup grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons soy

DIRECTIONS

  1. Put corned beef in a large pot (with any spices from the spice pack in the package) cover with water -
  2. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cover - cook for approx 2.5 hours
  3. Mix jam, mustard, soy - set aside
  4. Heat over to 400
  5. Remove corned beef from pot, drain and place on a baking sheet lined with foil
  6. Baste with the mustard glaze and cook another 30 minutes (adding more glaze occasionally) until you can push a fork into it really easily
  7. Slice and enjoy
