Sweet & Spicy Foil Roasted Corned Beef #recipe

Whew, I am tired! I spent all day today baking and cooking. It was so worth it! Usually I throw all of our corned beef fixings in the crock pot and then let it cook all day. We’ve always liked it this way, it’s just plain good.

Today, I found out that roasting the corned beef similar to the way Simply Recipes does it is so much better though! I don’t think I’ll ever go back tot he old way!

First things first — I had to make up a quick honey mustard sauce to marinate my corned beef in. I added some horseradish to give it a little kick :), my dad would’ve been proud!

Then I added the marinade and the spice packet to the corned beef – oh yum, these spices smelled so good!

Rub all that good stuff into that corned beef until it’s totally and completely saturated.

Seal up the bag and stick the honey mustard slathered corned beef in the fridge — forget about it for a few hours. You could even leave it overnight if you want to eliminate a step the day of.

After you’ve marinated the corned beef, plop it onto a big square of foil, pour a couple tablespoons of the extra marinade over it and sprinkle with  a couple more tablespoons of brown sugar. Wrap it up in the foil and bake it. Come to mama!

After a couple of hours, your house should smell so good from the roasting corned beef that you won’t want to wait another second! It’s almost done now, I promise! Open up the foil to expose the top of the corned beef and stick it back in the oven, this time under the broiler. Broil it for a few minutes to gt a nice sizzlin’ hot top. Ready to eat!

Slice your delicious corned beef across the grain into thin slices and serve it up with some glazed carrots, colconnan and Irish soda bread {find links to all of these yummy dishes here}. Oh!! Don’t discard all of those juices int he bottom of the foil! You’ll want to pour a big spoonful over top of your sliced corned beef. It will give it a major kick in the rear with its concentrated and spicy sweetness!
