Favorite Ingredients Friday - Irish Edition

Both of my maternal grandparents were Irish. That side of my family is very proudly Irish, but I must admit that I don't recall a lot of Irish recipes when I was growing up. After my grandfather retired, he discovered that he loved cooking. I moved back to New Orleans when I was 18 and lived there for about three years before going back and finishing college. It was not unusual for my grandfather to call my cousin and I and have us come over for dinner. It was ironic that this large, gruff Irish/German man who had mastered hiding his emotions became so maternal later in life. He'd worry that we were out gallivanting and not getting a good home-cooked meal. This was one of my favorites and very appropriate for today.

Abuelito’s Corned Beef

1) 3 1 / 2 – 4 lb corned beef
2) water
3) 2 T prepared mustard
4) 1 1 / 2 t horseradish
5) 2 T red wine vinegar
6) 1 / 4 c molasses

In slow cooking pot (I use a crock pot), cover corned beef with water. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours. Drain cooked corned beef; place on broiler pan. Combine mustard, horseradish, wine vinegar, and molasses. Brush on all sides of meat. Brown in 400 oven for 20 minutes or until brown. Baste often with sauce.
