Up your corned beef dinner with this Triple Whiskey Glazed Corned Beef! Whether you make it in a slow cooker or on top of the stove, it’s equally delicious.
Local Pasadena resident and blogger, Lynn Gray of Bijouxs, sent me a digital copy of her new book BIJOUX Family and Friends. We met last year at a produce show. She has a lovely site and takes the most beautiful photos. While all her recipes are mouth-watering, I stopped when I came across her recipe for Triple Whiskey Glazed Corned Beef and Cabbage.
I make Corned Beef and Cabbage at least twice during the winter, and always just around St. Patrick’s Day. Corned beef has to be one of the easiest of all meats, especially since most American grocery stores carry the brisket with the spice pack. Simmer for a few hours and you’ve got dinner!
I usually make my corned beef in the slow-cooker, since I work full time. But this time, I followed Lynn’s recipe, cooking it on the stove-top since I had time. Whether or not you cook it in the slow-cooker or stove-top, the sweet whiskey glaze is what really sends this already delicious meat over the top! To cook in the slow-cooker, just add corned beef and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Finish cooked corned beef with whiskey glaze.
Enjoy this whiskey glazed corned beef recipe!
- 1 4-5 pound corned beef round cut, with spices
- For the glaze:
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 ⁄4 cup dark molasses
- 1 ⁄4 cup Irish Whiskey
Place the corned beef along with the juices and spices in a large stockpot and cover with at least 3 inches of water.
Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 2 1⁄2-3 hours, or until the corned beef is fork tender.
(For slow-cooker; put corned beef, juices and spices in slow-cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Finish with glaze per instructions.)
While the corned beef is cooking, prepare the glaze. In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar and the mustard. Stir in the molasses and whiskey until smooth. Set aside.
When the corned beef is cooked, remove from the pot and place in a baking pan along with 1 cup of the cooking water; tent with foil to keep warm. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Brush the corned beef liberally with the glaze, cook uncovered in oven for 5 minutes, repeat the glazing process a total 3 times, for a total of 15 minutes glazing time.
