Prepare yourself for a fabulous Irish dinner! I don't know about you, but my family doesn't usually care for a "typical" corned beef dinner - the meat is too salty and stringy for them. But I have found the best method for cooking some of the saltiness out of the corned beef, and it cooks up so tender!
Topped with a delicious fresh Blackberry Dijon Glaze, which caramelizes to the most beautiful glaze ever, and you'll be enjoying the best corned beef dinner you have ever had in your life! Little ones and big ones were literally scooping this glaze up with their spoons and pouring over the corned beef, tender vegetables and licking their fingers!
This corned beef was flavorful and so moist! You can prepare in either your oven or in a slow cooker, and it is a process, but doesn't take oodles of time - you'll have this cooking in less than 30 minutes.
The corned beef is actually braised twice - the first time to remove the saltiness, and the second time to add a mandatory bottle of Guinness Stout Beer and fresh spices, and before you know it, your house will be filled with the most magnificent scents!
I usually steam or roast my baby red potatoes and carrots on the side - they can be cooked to absolute perfection and not have the typical "saltiness" they would have if you cooked them with the corned beef.
And tomorrow I'll be whipping up some Corned Beef Hash with the leftover meat - the Blackberry Dijon Glaze will add just a touch of sweetness to that dish as well!
Hope that you enjoy this St. Patrick's Day feast as much as my family does!
