The Fireman is promoting this dish! He's a silent supporter. He's vocal at home but quiet online. But this one, I got a "RED THIS IS THE BEST!" I should have made two. No joke.
OK I'm a corned beef junky. It doesn't have to be March to get attention from me. It doesn't have to be served with boiled potatoes or cabbage either. I'm happiest with it on bread in the middle of summer. Fortunately this doesn't take a lot of work. The crockpot works it during the day (while we laid by the pool-tough life) and then you coat it with flavor and bake for twenty minutes. Instead of boiled potatoes we are having warm potato salad. Tonight it's a proper meal but tomorrow it's sandwiches after the baseball game. I'm wanting the sandwich but The Fireman likes the full presentation. Gotta love him. I'm worried there wont be enough for leftovers. Even Emma is after the goodies.
Twice Cooked Corned Beef
I've purchased the biggest roast I could.
Dump into the crockpot and if it includes spices in a packet, sprinkle over the roast. Place the roast fat side down.
Cook slowly in crock pot till just about perfect. Mine was three hours on high. You could put this in the crockpot in the morning and put on low. Just dont overcook. We are going to glaze it and stick it back into the oven.
Take out of the crockpot. Place in casserole pan
Cover with brown mustard.Dump brown sugar over mustard. Rub into meat.
(note, if I was to do it again, I would NOT cover it. I went after the sugary crust on the bottom.)
Stick into the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
Let sit a good ten minutes (oh I snuck pieces) so slicing is easier. If you are only using for sandwiches then refrigerate overnight before putting on a slicer, if your lucky enough to have a deli slicer. I have to do it slowly with a knife.
Sneak a piece on rye when the mister isn't looking. Heck even the dog is looking for droppings!
Family Friendly Note This meal is great because it cooks in the Crock Pot! I know a lot of mothers that love to use their crock pots. Saves time.
