San Marcos Sunshine's Note:
Trust a Swede with your corned beef? Today, everyone is Irish! I prefer using a corned round...less fat, it slices nicer and isn't stringy. If you brine your own meat, I've been told even a tri tip roast works well, a popular cut of beef in the West. The gravy puts this recipe over the top!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 3 -4 lbs corned beef brisket (I use corned round, not brisket)
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 3 diced carrots
- 3 carrots, quartered lenthwise
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 medium onion, quartered
- 2 celery ribs, diced
- 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 2 cups ale (I use Killians Irish Red)
- 1 -2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 small head of cabbage, cut into 6 wedges (about 2 pounds)
- 1Heat nonstick Dutch oven over high heat. Sprinkle meat with pepper and brown in oil on all sides, about 6 minutes. Remove meat & set aside.
- 2Lower heat to medium and add diced onion,diced carrots, celery, brown sugar and thyme to pot drippings. Cook stirring until soft, about 7 minutes. Lower heat, add ale and mustard and cook 1-2 minutes, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pot.
- 3Return meat to pot, cover and cook over low heat about 3-1/2 hours. Keep heat just below simmer. Don't let it boil.
- 4Add cabbage, remaining sliced carrots, quartered onions and continue cooking covered until vegetables and meat are tender, about 40 minutes. Remove meat and let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Remove cabbage and large vegetable pieces with a slotted spoon and place on serving platter and keep warm. Reserve pan juices for gravy.
- 5Horseradish Gravy:.
- 6Strain and skim fat from pan juices. In pot over medium heat, combine 1 cup strained pan juices with milk, horseradish, mustard, thyme and pepper. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 T. reserved horseradish liquid. (Use water or more cooking liquid if not enough juice remained.).
- 7Stir cornstarch slurry into pan mixture and cook, stirring until mixture boils and thickens slightly, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chopped parsley or chives. Serve gravy with sliced meat and vegetables.
