Jen we really love this. I served with Kiwidutch Andria's Best Corned Beef/ Silverside on the Planet. Best Corned Beef/ Silverside on the Planet. and used the stock from the corn beef. Because the stock was quite strong in flavour I did increase the mustard powder to 2 teaspoons. Very yummy and a definite keeper for us! Thanks for posting :)

Thank you so much for adding this recipe, I have had my cookbook for long that I have lost this page and was heart broken thinking I would never use this recipe again. I have used it for years and thanks to you can use it for a lots more. I highly recommend this mustard sauce above all others :)

This is a New Zealand classic and it is fun to tweak it your own way but please note that the original recipe is always made with "MALT" vinegar here in NZ.
