Description

Here’s a recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage I have long considered to be my absolute favorite (holiday) meal.

Ingredients

  • 3-½ pounds Corned Beef, Untrimmed
  • 7 cups Water
  • Spice Mixture (see Below)
  • ½ cups Plus 1 1/2 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
  • 1 head Cabbage, Cut Into 8 Wedges
  • 5 whole Carrots, Unpeeled And Cut Into Quarters
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Cut Into Eighths
  • 7 whole Small Red Potatoes, Unpeeled And Cut Into Quarters
  • _____
  • FOR THE SPICE RUB:
  • 2 whole Bay Leaves
  • 2 teaspoons Whole Black Peppercorns
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Allspice
  • 5 whole Cloves
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 stick Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Mustard Seeds

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300ºF.

Mi spice rub ingredients together.

Rinse corned beef under running water and pat dry. Rub with spice rub mixture and place in a Dutch oven or deep oven-proof pot, fat-side up. Add water (enough to cover the beef and then some). Heat over medium-high heat on the stove until boiling. Once the pot has reached a boil, skim off any scum that collects on top and then transfer, covered, to the oven. Braise for 3 1/2 to 4 hours, until very tender.

In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and mustard until smooth. Set aside.

Remove the corned beef from the water and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Allow to cool slightly. Carefully remove the fat from the top of the beef using a sharp knife and slicing horizontally. Discard the fat. Generously coat the top and sides of the corned beef with the brown sugar-mustard mixture.

Increase oven temperature to 375ºF.

Remove the cinnamon stick and bay leaves from the water in the Dutch oven. Add the vegetables (cabbage, carrots, onion and potatoes) to the Dutch oven, adding additional water to raise water level to about half full if necessary. Cover and place over medium-high heat on the stove. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 15–25 minutes.

Place the glazed corned beef back in the oven and bake for approximately 10–15 minutes, until glaze is bubbly and crackling. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5–10 minutes on a cutting board.

Once vegetables are tender, remove from the heat and drain the water.

Slice corned beef across the grain into 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch inch slices. Plate a few slices of corned beef, a cabbage wedge, some carrots, potatoes and onion for each serving.

Enjoy!

Turned out tasty but mine could have used a little more spices I think…but this is a matter of personal taste. A good solid recipe, though, with a very nice finish topping.
