It's that time of year again! The wearin' O the green! One of my favorite holidays! St. Patrick's Day! The tradition in my family is a week long process starting with the baking of shamrock cookies, ordering my brisket, and shopping for the freshest vegetables to accompany my traditional Corned Beef Brisket! The Celtic music is playing, the beer is chilling, and life is good! My brisket is a mix of salty and spicy so the perfect pairing would be Belgian Chocolate Brownies! Oh my, that sweet and salty combo that no one can resist! There's still time to order your Fudy Chocolate Brownies in time for your St. Paddy's Day celebration!

Here is my not-so secret family recipe for the best brisket you will ever eat!
One 4-5 pound corned beef brisket
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 Tbl soy sauce
1 Tbl Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp ginger
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rinse brisket with water, place in large roasting pan, rub seasoning packet (that is included w/ the brisket) over brisket, cover 1/2 brisket with water, cover tightly with foil and add lid. Braise for 3 ½ hours. While brisket is cooking, prepare glaze. When brisket is done, remove from oven and drain liquid, (reserve liquid & add to cabbage, carrots, and potatoes for flavoring). Glaze meat & return to oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Slice across grain and enjoy!
Slainte! (To your health)
