With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Corned Beef Brisket with a Mustard Glaze

Corned Beef Brisket with a Mustard Glaze

Since it is St. Patrick's Day I had to make a corned beef brisket.
This time I finished with a twist that added a subtle sweetness and a nice browned top on the meat.



I began by following the instructions on the package.
I covered the brisket with water and added the flavor packet that was included.
I let it simmer on the stove top a couple of hours then added 5 peeled and cut carrots and a head of cabbage that I cut into wedges.


When the vegetables were tender, I removed the meat and trimmed the excess fat.
Placing it on a rack in a broiler pan, I basted the brisket with a glaze made of 1/2 cup light corn syrup and 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard.  I broiled it (about 5-inches from the heat) for about 10 minutes, basting a couple more times.  It made a wonderful caramelization on top.

 Today is my mom's birthday so St Patrick's Day has always been a special day.
I am planning a small Birthday Brunch for her this Saturday morning.
Probably just my sister and brother, Jamie and family and other grandchildren that can come by.
We are looking forward to getting together.

I've never been a fan of corned beef but that sure does look good. I cooked one once and it was awful. I do however like Reuben sandwiches.
Happy birthday to your mom

Oh my goodness! We have corned beef & cabbage every St. Patrick's day (we're actually having ours tomorrow) and I have never finished it up under the broiler like you did. That looks SO good I may have to give it a go! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for the sweet comment on our Mr. J. He's such a good boy. And your Raider is just as cute as can be! Have a wonderful weekend!... Donna

I love corned beef! My husband on the other hand, doesn't care for it at all, so none at our house. This looks delicious. Happy Birthday to your Mom!

Many birthday blessings to your Mom, LDH.

Your corned beef looks delish. I did one today in the crockpot, with onions, carrots,potatoes, and cabbage, all mixed with pickling spices, and it all came out great, too.

Thanks for all your visits and comments to my blog, LDH. You are always so welcome. Susan

This looks wonderful!! :) You know, I've never made corned beef in my life, but I've always wanted too. You make it look so easy that maybe I'll give it a try one day. :) Thanks! Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Birthday to your Mom! :)

That makes my mouth water. I like corned beef and so does hubby so maybe I'll have to try this.

Happy birthday mom! I adore corned beef and this looks so good. Super photos too! I'm a pretty good photographer but my food shots are always disappointing.

JoAnn said...

This looks great! Happy Birthday to your mom - my college roommate's mother was born on St. Patrick's Day, too. I still think of her every year.

I have never done that with my corned beef...which I cooked in the slowcooker this week for the first time. I think that..the glaze part... would be a grand addition.

Margot said...

I cooked my corned beef in the crock-pot for the first time too. I wish I'd known about this glaze. It would have been a nice addition. I'll keep it in mind for the next time.

Heather said...

looking at your photos had me salivating and I had just eaten.

Ellie said...

Happy Birthday to your mom!

Love cabbage and corned beef but never made it like that. Maybe I'll give it a go.
