Curing the Meat

  • Add the beef brisket to the curing solution and place in the chiller overnight. See this beef brisket recipe :
  • Add the meat to your curing solution. If it floats to the top place a plastic container filled with brine on top of it to push it right down low.
  • Make sure to completely cover the meat with the brine. Leave it to cure in the pot for 6-7 days. Make a point of stirring the solution once a day.
  • When the meat is done it will appear red or grey in color, this is quite normal.

Cooking the Meat

  • Remove the brine from the meat. There are 3 ways to cook the corned beef.
  • You can siimmer it in a pot. If you want to do this, simmer for a half hour, remove the water. Add more fresh water and simmer for about 3 hours.
  • Or you can cook overnight in the oven.
  • Finally you could barbecue the meat how you like it.
  • Sprinkle with some black peppercorns and let sink in. ( optional )
  • Either way let cool down before slicing.
