Mamas Monday Meals: Baked Corned Beef with a Sweet-Mustard Crust! Melt In Your Mouth Good!

Monday, August 5, 2013


Corned beef is taken to a new level when baked with this delicious mustard crust.

It's as easy as traditionally boiling the beef, except it is wrapped in foil and baked in the oven.


3 lb corned beef
1/4 cup honey mustard
1/4 cup whole grain dijon mustard
2 TBS brown sugar, light


Preheat oven to 350°F.
Drain from package:
3 lb corned beef
Lay corned beef, fat side up, on a large piece of heavy duty, wide, aluminum foil.
Evenly sprinkle peppercorns from package over corned beef (optional).
In a small bowl, whisk together: 1/4 cup honey mustard
1/4 cup whole grain dijon mustard
Spread half of the mustard mixture over the top of the corned beef.
Reserve remaining mustard.
Sprinkle evenly with:
2 TBS brown sugar, light
Wrap the corned beef with foil so that space is left on top between the corned beef and the foil
Place foil-wrapped corned beef in a shallow roasting pan and bake for 2 hours.
Open the foil wrapping and broil for 2-3 minutes, until the top is bubbly and lightly browned.
Let corned beef rest for 5 to 10 minutes, then place on cutting board and cut at a diagonal, across the grain of the meat, into 1/2-inch thick slices.
Serve with reserved mustard on the side.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
