Corned Beef

This is more just a note to myself - to remember how to cook my corned beef...

Corned Beef with White Sauce

1 tbs brown sugar
12 peppercorns
1 bay leaf
1 tbs vinegar

White Sauce
2 tbs butter
2 tbs flour
1 cup milk
2 tsp seeded mustard

First rinse the silverside under cold water. Put the silverside in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water. Add the brown sugar, peppercorns, bay leaf and vinegar. Simmer the beef - 40 minutes for each pound of meat. Allow to cool in the liquid.

To make the white sauce melt the butter in a small saucepan, add the flour and whisk to combine. Gradually add in the milk, whisking as you go until the sauce is thickened. Add the mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
