Fruit Glazed Corned Beef

I simply love a good corned beef dinner, I have been making this particular recipe for at least 20 years now. I cook this corned beef every St. Patrick's day, the whole family just loves it. It takes a little work to prepare it but not so much that you can't still do other things around the house. This is the best tasting corned beef I have ever had in my life, it is so moist, tender, juicy and flavorful. So many recipes are still moist and tender but also flavorless.

4-5 Lbs. - Corned Beef ( with pickling packet )
2 - Bottles Beer ( your favorite brand )
1 - Lemon ( large )
1 - Orange ( large )
1 - Large Onion ( quartered )
Water to Cover

The Glaze:

1 C. - Brown Sugar
1 Tbs. - Dijon Mustard
1 C. - Apple Juice
1 C. - Orange Juice
4 Tbs. - Lemon Juice

Place the meat into a large soup pot, add the beer and enough water to cover the meat. Add the onion and pickling packet to the pot , cut the fruit and squeeze the juice into the water then place the fruit halves into the water also. Cover and simmer over medium low heat for 4 hours, when done take the lid off and let the meat cool off in the cooking liquid, about 1 hour. Take the meat out of the cooking liquid and place into a baking dish, top the meat with the brown sugar. In a bowl mix the remaining ingredients and pour around the meat. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour basting every 10-15 minutes.

Mary Beth, this looks awesome.. I have another corned beef brisket in the freezer, I will have to try this recipe out on that brisket and let you know how it turned out, better yet blog it and link it back to you.

Very pretty picture! Even with the pretty picture though, I just can't get into the corned beef. It's not you, really, it's corned beef.

Wow, this looks much better than the corned beef I'm used to! Hope you had a happy St. Pat's!

That corned beef looks incredible! Your glaze sounds just wonderful! I make a glazed version too, but mine is a bit different.
