Glazed Corned Beef!
I try something a little different with our usual corned beef dinner.
My wife is usually in charge of corned beef dinners at our house, typically boiling it with cabbage and potatoes before slicing and serving it. I decided I wanted to try something a touch different so I took over the corned beef chores for dinner one night. Getting dinner ready started with boiling a corned beef with its included spice pack, celery, and garlic.

After boiling the corned beef for approximately five hours, I mixed up a glaze of honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, and ginger. The boiled corned beef was placed on a baking rack, on a baking tray, and covered with the glaze before before going into the oven at 350°F for 30 minutes. While the corned beef was baking away with the glaze in the oven, I loaded the boiling pot with cabbage and potatoes to go with dinner.

All glazed up and ready for baking!
Dinner was good! The glaze on the corned beef added another layer of flavor to the usual corned beef flavors. A little sweet in addition to the usual salty; it was a nice touch. This would be phenomenal on a sandwich with a little of the glaze and mustard on the bread.
Yeah! Come on!
A little cabbage and potato for on the side!
