Brown Sugar Glazed Corned Beef

A delicious main dish that is perfect for St. Patrick's Day.

Brown Sugar Glazed Corned Beef
Makes many servings

  • 1 (3 -4 lb) corned beef brisket (If it is really fatty you can trim a bit of the fat off)
  • 1/2 medium onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into chunks
  • 1 celery rib with leaves, cut into chunks
  • 1 pkg mixed pickling spices (this comes with the corned beef)
  • Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup broth reserved from boiling the corned beef
  • 1 Tbsp. whole ground mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. sweet pickle relish (optional)

1. Place corned beef in a large Dutch oven; cover with water. Add the onion, carrot, celery and pickling spices. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until meat is tender.

2. After the corned beef is tender, prepare the glaze and preheat the oven to 325-f degrees. Coat the meat with the glaze. Bake uncovered for 30-45 minutes, basting occasionally and adding reserved liquid to bottom of dish as needed to prevent drying out. If the meat seems dry at all, you can cover it with foil midway through baking. After letting the meat rest for several minutes, slice and serve.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb
