Homestyle Corned Beef and Cabbage


2 cups Water
1/4 cup Honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
1 medium Cabbage head, cut into 8 wedges
3 tablespoons Butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons Fresh dill, chopped
2 1/2 pounds 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.
