Cook Time: 3 Hrs.
What you need:
* 1 boneless corned beef brisket with seasoning packet (3-1/2 to 4 lb.) * 6 cloves garlic, peeled * 2 tsp. whole black peppercorns * 2 c. water * 6 Tbsp. butter * 1 c. thinly sliced green onions, including white and green parts * 1/2 c. horseradish * 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper * 1/4 tsp. salt * 1 head green cabbage, cored, cut into 6 wedges (1 to 1-1/2 lbs.) * 1-1/2 lb. small red-skinned potatoes, cut in half
1. Position oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven. Heat oven to 350°F. Place corned beef brisket in roasting pan; sprinkle garlic, contents of seasoning packet and peppercorns around and over brisket. Add water; cover tightly with aluminum foil. Braise in upper third of 350°F oven 3 to 3-1/2 hrs. or until brisket is fork-tender. 2. Meanwhile, place butter, green onions, horseradish, ground pepper and salt in glass measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH 1-2 min. or until butter melts; mix well. Cover and refrigerate 2 Tbsp. for Rustic Corned Beef & Potato Bake. Place cabbage wedges on 1 half of baking sheet and potatoes on other half. Drizzle remaining horseradish-butter mixture over vegetables, turning cabbage and tossing potatoes to coat. Cover with aluminum foil. Roast in lower third of 350°F oven with brisket 55 min. Uncover vegetables; continue roasting 15-20 min. or until vegetables are tender and begin to brown. 3. Combine glaze ingredients in small bowl. Remove brisket from roasting pan; place on rack in broiler pan so surface of brisket is 3 to 4 in. from heat. Brush glaze over brisket; broil 2-3 min. or until glaze is bubbly and beginning to brown. 4. Carve brisket diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Cover and refrigerate 1/2 of brisket (about 12 oz.) and 2 c. potatoes for Rustic Corned Beef & Potato Bake. Serve remaining brisket and potatoes with cabbage.
