Served this luscious sauce with our corned beef last night and it was wonderful. Very easy to make (I used about 1/2 cup of the corned beef broth and apple cidar vinegar). I made the sauce about 2 hours ahead of time, let it sit on the stove (which was warm from all the other cooking), then turned the heat on under it just prior to serving. I think this would be great with pork and ham. We surely enjoyed your Mother's recipe and understand why it is a family favorite.

This is weird because when I tasted this from the pan it was way to vinegar-y for my taste. But, I perservered and put it on my meat anyway. It was AWESOME on the meat. I don't know what the difference is off and on the meat but I am not looking too far into it. I am just going to continue to use it every time I make corned beef. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!

What a great recipe! My corned beef dinner for friends was an added success because of your sauce! Because I wanted to make it the day before, I used beef broth for the liquid without a problem (it may have been better with the corned beef liquid, but I have no complaints). Used corn starch to thicken a little at the end. Thanks for this recipe - I will be using it every year!!!
