To Corn Beef

Ready in 96 hours

Homemade corned beef is not bright pink, but more the color of regular brisket. This is delicious and flavorful--it's fun to make your own corned beef, but you need to start a few days in advance!


3 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Black pepper
2 clove Garlic
2 Bay leaf
2 teaspoon Pickling spices

Original recipe makes 4



Mix together 2 qt cold water and one cup salt. This is your brine. Add the ingredients above to your brine. Place a 3-pound brisket in the brine and cover with an inverted plate to hold it under the brine. Allow beef to stay in the brine for 48 hours (I prefer 4 days) in the refrigerator.
