Lots of medical issues have kept me away...husband's surgery and clinic visits for example...Thought I would share this with you with St Patricks Day coming.
Tastiest Corn Beef Ever Corn beef is cured in salt and last year I tried the following recipe from Elise Bauer at Simply Recipes & was hooked as was my husband who has to watch his sodium level. Perhaps you too have been hankering for a Reuben but didn't think you could.
Prep time 10 minutes...Cook time 2 hrs 30 minutes at 350F
First you drain the corn beef from the package & discard the spice packet..or save it for another use. I actually rinse my corn beef to get all the saline solution off of it. Then I put the corn beef, fat side up in a dutch oven and cover with water. When the water comes to a boil, discard the water. You fill the dutch oven again with cold water and bring the meat to a boil a second time. Empty the pot, rinse the meat with cold water and allow meat to drain.
Preheat oven to 350F while the water is finishing its second boil so you can finish quickly. Now after the beef is drained lay it fat side up on a large piece of aluminum foil, insert cloves, evenly spaced, into the fat and then cover the top, (fat side) with a hot or sweet honey mustard. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top.
You have to wrap the foil loosely so there is some space between the beef and the foil at the top and yet the beef is totally covered in the foil. Place this foil wrapped corn beef into a shallow roasting pan and bake for 2 hours.
At the end of the cooking time carefully open the foil and add some more mustard on top and fold the foil around the outside of the beef. Now broil for 2-3 minutes until the top of the corn beef is lightly brown and bubbly. Let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes before you cut it at a diagonal, across the grain into slices 1/2 inch thick. Serve immediately...Delicious!
3 lbs corn beef in package 10 whole cloves 1/4 cup hot sweet honey mustard* 2 Tablespoons brown sugar...
* I was uncertain about hot so I used Cub brand Honey Mustard that just happens to come in a 12 oz container just ike a more expensive one with the same ingredients at half the price. Cub Honey Mustard has 2 Carbs, 25 mg Sodium and 10 calories and you can read every natural ingredient!
