I would like to make this, but I have a question. How exactly do you prepare the sauce for tthe cabbage? Should you melt the butter before mixing in the two other ingredenting?

This is a very tasty dish - so much more flavourful than traditional corned beef and cabbage!

This was very good and even the kids loved it. Lots of flavor in both meat and cabbage which isn't easy to do. I cut the cabbage to half and it was plenty for the 3 pound brisket.

GREAT glaze with the honey and mustard, and the sauce for the cabbage was equally as good! Family like it. Will definitely make again!

This briscuit along with Irish Soda Bread made a very good meal. I added 1/2 cup apple juice to the cooking liquid and added baby carrots along with the cabbage wedges to the cooking liquid. I have one question. Should I have placed the meat fat side up or down in the Dutch Oven? Thanks for your input.

Very tasty. The glaze is a great addition. I definitely won't be waiting until St. Patty's Day next year to make this.

we too eat corned beef year round...I buy 5 or 6 of them at St. Patrick's time(cheaper then), they freeze wonderfully, put it frozen in the crock pot and cook on medium all day long and dinner is ready come evening and oh the smell all day!
