Ingredients

  • 1.5–2kg piece Quality Mark corned beef with a good fat layer
  • 1 onion, peeled and halved
  • 2 carrots, washed and chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon whole cloves
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • Juice of one lemon

Method

Turn the slow cooker on to low to pre-warm while preparing the ingredients. Put the corned beef into the pre-warmed slow cooker. Scatter the onion, carrots and bay leaf around the meat. Add sufficient cold water to cover the beef. Cover with the lid. Cook on low for 7–9 hours (it is not recommended to cook this on high).
 

Stovetop Option

Place corned beef, onion, carrots and bay leaf in a large saucepan. Add sufficient cold water to cover the beef. Simmer, covered for 1½ - 2 hours until tender.

Turn off and leave the corned beef to cool in the liquid for 2–3 hours. At this stage the corned beef can be well-wrapped and refrigerated overnight.

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a deep-sided baking tray with foil. Place the meat on the prepared tray. Stud the beef with the whole cloves. Mix the brown sugar, mustard powder, cinnamon and allspice together with the lemon juice and spread half of the mixture over the beef.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, basting occasionally with the remaining glaze. Serve with your favourite vegetables.
