Corned Beef and Cabbage
2 cups of water
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard, divided
1 medium head cabbage, cut into 8 wedges ( approx. 2 pounds)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill, OR
1/2 teaspoon fried dill weed
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pound corned beef brisket
Place brisket and water in Dutch oven; cover tightly and cook 1 hour at 350 degrees (F).
( It is very important to simmer the meat slowly because boiling will cause meat to become tough.) Turn brisket over and continue cooking, covered, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until meat is tender. Remove brisket from cooking liquid and place, flat-side up, on rack in broiler pan so surface of meat is 3 to 4 inches from heat.
Combine honey with 1 tablespoon mustard; brush half of mixture over top of brisket and broil 3 minutes. Brush with remaining mixture and continue broiling 2 minutes, or until brisket is glazed. Meanwhile, steam cabbage 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Combine remaining mustard with butter and dill; spread over hot cabbage wedges. Carve brisket diagonally across the grain into thin slices and serve with cabbage.

2 pounds Cabbage
1 cup Sour cream
1 tablespoon Prepared horseradish

Cut cabbage into wedges and core. Add to the pot, cover and simmer until tender, about 30 minutes. Combine sour cream with horseradish.

1/2 pt Whipping Cream
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
Whip cream until it stand in peaks. Fold in horseradish.
*We prefer our cabbage crispy firm, so, we cook it separately. Cooked quickly in boiling water, it retains its beautiful bright green color. We season it heavily with fresh ground pepper and we don't go easy on the butter!
Here is another Corned Beef "sauce" which sounds really tasty: Sliced the beef and place it on an oven proof serving platter. Mix up 2 tablespoons of mustard, 2 tablespoons of catsup and 1/3 cup brown sugar (packed). Spread over the corned beef. If it is a large piece, double the recipe. Put it back in the oven for a bit to warm the sauce
