Corned Beef with Honey Marmalade Mustard Glaze

by Erin

Slow cooker corned beef can’t get much better, but how about glazing it with a mixture of honey, orange marmalade, and mustard?

Corned Beef with Honey Marmalade Mustard Glaze 2

I cooked this in the slow cooker like I do every year, but added a roasting step to finish it off topped with a glaze made of honey, orange marmalade, and mustard. It was awesome!! Loved how the edges got all crispy. I highly recommend this for you St. Patrick’s Day menu, or for anytime of the year!

Usually I also cook the cabbage in the crock pot which you can definitely add if you have room in your slow cooker, but I tried something different this year…Roasted Cabbage with Lemon (or roasted cabbage with smoked paprika).

Corned Beef with Honey Marmalade Mustard Glaze 1


Serves 6-8


1 medium onion, cut into wedges

6 medium red potatoes, quartered

1 pound carrots, cut into 1/2-inch wide sticks

3-4 cups water

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 bay leaf

2 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp cider vinegar

1/2 tsp pepper

3 lb corned beef brisket with spice packet

1/3 cup marmalade

2 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

2 Tbsp grainy mustard


  1. Place the onion, potatoes and carrots in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine water, garlic, bay leaf, sugar, vinegar, pepper and contents of spice packet; pour over vegetables. Add more water if necessary to cover vegetables. Top with brisket.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat and vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaf and meat.
  3. Combine the marmalade, honey, brown sugar, Dijion, and grainy mustard. Set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a broiler pan with foil, then place the corned beef on top. Spread it with the glaze (reserving excess for serving) and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve topped with extra glaze.

This recipe sounds delicious however, I don’t have a clue what you mean a brisket with a “spice packet”. I have never seen a spice packet come with brisket. What spices do you mean?

Every corned beef I have ever purchased came with a tiny plastic bag with spices. A regular brisket probably does not come with one. I looked up what is usually in a spice packet and this is what I found: 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 2 crushed bay leaves, 8 allspice berries, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper – hope that helps!
