Method

1.Place meat in a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover, and bring to the boil. Use a spoon to skim fat from surface and discard. Add vinegar, sugar, cloves, bay leaves and peppercorns.
2.Reduce heat to medium. Partially cover the pan and simmer gently for about 1 hour (allow 10-30 minutes per 500g) or until meat is tender. Cover and set aside to cool in liquid.
3.To make mustard sauce, melt butter in a saucepan on medium. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth, followed by cooking liquid. Return to heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and thickens. Simmer for 3 minutes. Stir through mustard and parsley. Season to taste.
4.Serve corned beef thinly sliced, drizzled with sauce and accompanied with steamed vegetables.

Drain left-over cooked meat and wrap in baking paper then foil. Store in the fridge. Use in salads, sandwiches and fritters.
