I got a little skillet going over there on medium heat oh yeah that’s a beautiful thing already we need to do that I just want to keep it moving. you don’t really want to go walking away and getting distracted just get a little toasty. You start getting a little fragrant, and that’s pretty much it. We’re not really looking to put much color or burn anything here you can start to really smell the individual spices right off the bat you can smell the clove. You can smell you can smell the clove you can smell it with a magical penny stand by the recipe calls for a 1 teaspoon of cloves which I happen to forget you don’t want to go too hot you’ll start to hear things starting to crackle. I’m starting to hear it now a little bit and that’s a good indicator that you’re getting pretty close right from there away from the pot. You don’t have a mortar and pestle. You got one go ahead take ZnO [Music] very nice right all right. We’ll see you later going so from here I have my vessel this is what we’re going to put the brisket in to cure.


So I got two and a half cups of kosher salt, 1/2 cup brown sugar like so and this is the pink curing salt and then just you know little Guinness you know st. Patrick’s Day and from there this very important you want to make sure that everything gets dissolved in the liquid. So from there we’re just going to add the spice mixture in there mix it up nice add the beef cover it five days and then you know what we’ll see what happens that smell is something else OOP I want to take a half a cup of this and reserve it and that’ll be our cooking spice for when we cook the corned beef leaves you with a cup add that right in okay so boom. We got our brine here nice piece of meat. Now here’s a little thing I like to do can I take a little cake tester, and I just like to prick some little holes and especially by the fat the brine sometimes has a harder time getting through the fat than it does just straight onto the beef brain itself and then from there.


We just go right into the brine oh look at that no overflows the brisket tends to float a little what I like to do is you get if just a plate that fits or anything that’s food safe that can you know handle being in water and I just like to place that right on top of the meat there. You go that’s the move right there now from here I just wrapped with a little plastic. Here we’ll drop this in the fridge now I’ll see you guys in five days there we go you better get the door bud. So let me take the the old plates out yeah that’s our guy. We’ll give that a nice rinse you don’t have to go nuts getting everything off because we’re going to cook this. We’re going to we’re going to boil it essentially here I just got a nice little stock.


You can use Dutch oven or just like give you a nice little sized stockpot so add in our spices there she’s heavy right in your water, and we’re going to let that boil for like 15-20 minutes watched pot never boils then you can walk. So that’s cooking away and now we’ll turn it down in heat to a little medium-low throw a little cover on there and we’ll let that go for about three and a half four hours happens over time low and slow magic all right me look Benny corned beefs all done nice fork-tender yeah buddy that’s it. I’ll put some green cabbage that i-cord come up some carrots and some red skin potatoes and an onion I put that all in there let that cook for about 40 minutes and then I pull it out and serve that on the side nice pink nice color that’s from the curing salt.
