"I found a recipe on the internet years ago, it was a sauce to pour on the cabbage. If my memory serves me it had honey, mayo, dijon mustard, and maybe horseradish? you cooked the cabbage and then poured this sauce over it. It was saved to my computer that crashed. I cannot for the life of me find this recipe on the internet now. Have spent hours upon hours looking. I believe you could put it on the corned beef as well and put under broiler. Anybody have anything similar... my husband loved it and i would like to find it to prepare for him."
