Ingredients
marinade
  • 1 Tbs mustard
  • 1 Tbs horseradish
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • ~
  • 3lb corned beef with spice packet
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
Instructions
  1. In small bowl, mix together the honey, mustard and horseradish.
  2. Remove corned beef from packaging and rinse in cool water. Pat dry. Place in a gallon sized Ziploc bag. Smear the honey/mustard mixture over the corned beef being sure to coat the entire thing. Add spice mixture to bag and seal.
  3. Gently massage the corned beef for a few second to be sure the marinade is coating every surface possible. Place on plate and put in fridge to marinate for 3 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350.
  5. Place corned beef, fat side up, on top of a large square of aluminum foil. Pour a little of the excess marinade on top. Sprinkle 2 Tbs brown sugar over the corned beef.
  6. Bring up edges of foil and seal to make a loose packet around the meat. Place in a shallow roasting pan and bake at 350 degrees for 2 hours.
  7. Remove from oven and carefully vent a corner to let steam escape.
  8. Turn oven to broil. Fold sides of foil down a bit to expose the corned beef. Pop back into oven and broil 1 -3 minutes until top is deep brown and sizzling.
  9. Remove to platter and slice against the grain, serve slice with a spoonful of the pan drippings for a sweet/spicy kick.
