Roasted Corned Beef

I love a reason to make a themed meal. Partly because it’s fun. Partly because it means it’s not the same-old-same-old stuff we always eat. And partly because it actually makes the planning easier – I have a direction! So I love making an Irish meal for St. Patrick’s Day. Corned beef and cabbage all the way! My husband I love it so much, though, that we usually have a “St. Patrick’s Day in May” for an excuse to make the meal again!

What you need:

Roasted Corned Beef


Ingredients

  • 3-4 lb. corned beef brisket, with seasonings
  • 1 1/2 c. water

Equipment

  • roaster oven (or dutch oven for your stove)

Time: 5 minutes prep, 2-3 hours in the roaster oven.

Freezeable: No. Corned beef can be successfully frozen before cooking, however.

Serves: 4-6.

Multiplying the recipe: I could fit more than one in my roaster oven, but the roasting time increases slightly.

Roasted Corned Beef:

Unwrap the corned beef brisket from its packaging. Set roaster oven for 325F. Pour 1/2″ of water into the roaster oven, then place corned beef on a rack in the oven (fat side up). Roast for 2-3 hours, or until fork-tender.

Serve with potatoes, carrots, and cabbage! Sláinte!
