Glazed Corned Beef

Since this week was St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to share with you the BEST recipe for corned beef. My mom made this a few years ago and it has been a hit since. The recipe is from the Taste of Home magazine.


  • 1 corned beef brisket with spice packet (3 to 4 pounds), trimmed
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish


  • Place corned beef and contents of seasoning packet in a Dutch oven; cover with water. Add onion and celery; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-1/2 hours or until meat is tender.
  • Drain and discard liquid and vegetables. Place beef on a greased rack in a shallow roasting pan; set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Brush over beef.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Yield: 12 servings.
Note: I don't have a dutch oven, so I just boil mine in a pot. Works just fine. And for those of you that have never tried corned beef, give it a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Ask the butcher to pick you out a good one in the meat section. Enjoy.


  1. Was excited to see this post. Someone else with a Glazed Corned Beef recipe and was going to compare it to mine.

    I am Jill's mom. I didn't know she like this so much.
    Thanks for the compliment.

  2. I've never had corned beef glazed before. I just crockpot mine and that's it. This sounds so yummy! I'm going to have to try it out.

  3. I've just done it in the crockpot as well, I also can't wait to try it glazed! Thanks!
