Oven Braised Corned Beef Brisket Recipe

Ingredients :
1 piece (about 4 lb.) center-cut corned beef brisket 
1 lemon, ends trimmed 
1 onion (about 1/2 lb.), peeled 
1 teaspoon black peppercorns 
1/2 teaspoon whole allspice 
6 to 8 whole cloves 
1/4 cup Dijon mustard 
1/4 cup brown sugar

How To Make Oven Braised Corned Beef Brisket :
Step 1
Trim and discard most of the surface fat from corned beef brisket. Rinse meat well under cool running water, rubbing gently to release its corning salt.

Step 2
Lay meat, fattiest side up, in a 2-inch-deep, 11- by 15- or 16-inch roasting pan. Thinly slice lemon (discard seeds) and onion and lay slices over meat. Sprinkle with peppercorns, allspice, and cloves.

Step 3
Set pan on middle rack in a 325° oven. Pour about 8 cups boiling water around brisket, seal the pan with foil, and bake until meat is very tender when pierced, about 4 hours. Uncover and drain off all but about 1 cup of the liquid. If desired, reserve the lemon and onion slices and rearrange them on top of the meat.

Step 4
In a small bowl, mix the mustard and brown sugar; spread evenly over meat, on top of the onion-lemon mixture. Broil about 8 inches from heat until the mustard mixture begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the corned beef to a platter. Serve hot, warm, or cold; slice meat across the grain.
