Corned Beef with Mustard Sauce

Corned Beef with Mustard Sauce


This corned beef with mustard sauce was incredibly delicious. I usually purchase the prepackaged corned beef and prepare it according to the package.  This time I wanted to try a different method.  It worked beautifully! This was so full flavor, moist and tender. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

Wrap it tightly in heavy duty foil and place in a baking dish or roasting pan. Bake for 2 hours. Open the foil and bake another 30 minutes.

While the meat is resting, place cabbage and potatoes in a large pot, pour some of the juices from the foil packet into the pot and fill with water to cover the vegetables.  Boil about 15 to 20 minutes.

    I love corned beef, a reuben is one of my favorite sandwiches, ever. The saurkraut and melted cheese, and 1000 Island! YUM! I make corned beef in the crock pot, cook it until it falls apart, so tender. But I’ve never thought of a mustard sauce. This looks so delish! And then using the mustard sauce for the cabbage? Brilliant!!! Another must make! Thanks.
