This turned out wonderful as far as I am concerned! DH missed my glaze after the initial boiling and simmering, but I didn't (I'm not especially fond of sweetened meats, although I don't mind occasionally using the mustard and brown sugar glaze I do on corned beef, so next time, I will glaze a portion for him). In addition to having half of the corned beef left over (there were only two of us eating when I made this), which I used for SackVilleGirl's Great Round Reuben last night, I added a tomato based sauce from chicken I did the night before and converted the left-overs into a stew that I served with a crusty homemade bread. Both were delightful make-overs since I'm one of those people who hates left-overs...I will certainly be doing this recipe again and likely buying corned beef briskets more frequently! Thank you for sharing chia!!!
I usually enjoy corned beef and cabbage, but your combination of seasonings are wonderful!!! I used the little packet that also came with my corned beef (I believe it had coriander seeds, crumbled bay leaves, red pepper flakes, and yellow mustard seeds). I used exactly the combination of spices you listed (except a few more peppercorns) and it was nice that for a change my veggies did NOT taste bland. I planned to make another recipes from the leftovers....there were NO leftovers....it was THAT good!!! Thanks Chia!!!
I am on weight watchers, and this recipe fits in nicely. I made the weight watchers "corned beef and corn potato soup" more like a stew and it was very good. Your recipe was great, thank you.
