I am totally in love with Corned Beef! It doesn't have to be March or St. Patrick's Day for my family to toss it in the crock pot. The Fireman loves my recipe for Corned Beef. I cook it until it is just about to fall apart but where it is still holding its shape and then cover it with brown mustard and brown sugar and put in the oven to crust up. It is heavenly. But it is in no way traditional. Even the way my beloved Gram made it is not traditional. She would cook it the same way and then toss it in the oven with a orange sauce. My family loves bold flavors. I saw this recipe in my Cooking Light Cookbook and thought I should give it a try. I mean, come on, it is cooked in beer and you cant go wrong in The Fireman's eyes cooking in beer.
