Mustard Glazed Corned Beef

READY IN: 4hrs 45mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

Nothing beats a fresh lean corned beef brisket that has been cooked long and slow to create a juicy, tender spiced meat, with a lovely glaze...mummmmm This dish is best when prepared two days before eating.

It is hard to find an 8-lb. corned beef at this time of year, so I had to halve the recipe. I prepared it one day ahead, then added the glaze before serving. It was quite delicious, and the glaze is similar to one that I generally make. I would definitely recommend trying this, instead of the usual method. Thanks for posting.
