  5. Stir until spices are evenly distributed.
  6. Cover pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat; do not boil.
  7. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until a fork penetrates meat easily, about 3-4 hours (about 1 hour per pound of meat).

  9. Make the glaze: add maple syrup, mustard, and pepper in a saucepan; whisk to combine.
  10. Cook over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, until glaze comes to a boil.
  11. Decrease heat and continue stirring until glaze reduced and thickens, approximately 3 minutes.
  12. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  13. Brush half the glaze over corned beef; bake 8 minutes.
  14. Turn corned beef fatty side down, brush with remaining glaze, and return to oven to bake 8 minutes.
  15. Remove to a serving platter and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
