Irish Whisky Glazed Corned Beef (Serves Approx. 4 People)

  • 1 Pack of Vienna® Retail Corned Beef Approximate Weight 3 lbs.
  • Irish Whiskey
  • 8 oz. Orange Marmalade (or use Brown Sugar)
  • 6 oz. Country Dijon Mustard

 

You will need:

  • Mixing Bowl
  • Shallow Baking Pan
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Serving Dishes

 

Here’s what you’ll do:

Step 1. Preheat Oven to 350ºF

If corned beef comes with pickling spice rinse off if you prefer and pat dry. Place corned beef in a shallow baking pan add 2 cups of water to the pan and cover with aluminum foil. Set preheated  350ºF oven and bake covered for approximately 3.5 hours You may need to add additional water half way so as not to burn the meat.

Step 2. Mix Glaze

In a mixing bowl mix the Irish Whiskey, Orange Marmalade, and Country Dijon mustard.

Step 3. Top Roast with Glaze

Take aluminum foil off and spoon the glaze on the corned beef and add an additional cup of water so the glaze does not burn up in the pan, leave uncovered and bake additionally 30 minutes basting with the juice reserved in the pan to obtain a nice glaze. This method of cooking can take a little longer to cook depending on the meat to get the desired tenderness. You can crank the heat up to create steam and boiling effect, but you will need to watch that the water does not dry up and burn the meat on the bottom. Add sautéed spinach and all remaining ingredients to hot soup and mix well.
