  • Corn your own beef for a healthy alternative to the chemical laden store bought version. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
    2 quarts water
    4-5lb grass fed beef brisket (or other roast)
    1 cups salt
    2 Tbs Peppercorns
    1 Tbs Mustard seed
    2 Cinnamon sticks
    1 tsp Whole allspice
    1 tsp Coriander seeds
    1/2 tsp Whole cloves
    1/2 tsp ground ginger
    4-5 Garlic cloves or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp Thyme or savory
    3 bay leaves
    Mix 1 quart water with all spices and salt.
    Heat and stir until salt is dissolved.
    Add remaining water and stir. Cool until brine is at body temp or cooler.
    Pour over meat in a non leaching container or put meat in a gallon ziplock bag and cover with brine. Seal removing air as you go.
    Be sure your meat is completely submerged in the brine.
    Place in refrigerator for 7-10 days turning meat every day or 2. Or keep on counter in cool kitchen for 3-5 days, turning every day.
    Cook on low heat all day in crockpot or Dutch oven in a mixture of 2 cups brine and 4 cups fresh water. Add whole red potatoes and carrots for the last hour of cooking and cabbage wedges for the last 30 minutes.
    Enjoy!

    How long can it stay in the brine? can you store it for a month or better?

  • Tran Le US / Food & Garden

    I'm worried for you when you touch everything without washing your hand when handling the beef after that putting your hands in the cinnamon jar? At least you use the glove . By the way ,thanks for your recipe . Have a good day

    This seems to be a pickling brine, the same as you use for pickles or sauerkraut. Can you leave it in the brine indefinitely like pickles and sauerkraut? Does that make it a pickled beef?

    I've only ever corned brisket. What other cuts would be good for corned beef?

  • Susan Vasquez
    Susan Vasquez 2 months ago

    I like warming my spices in a dry pan for a few minutes before adding to the brine. It helps release the oils (and makes the house smell FANTASTIC!). Also, you NEED some juniper berries!! :)

    I'm guessing you aren't going to eat all that meat in one sitting, so how do you keep the other pieces for later? Do you cook them and keep them or keep them raw after being brined? Also, you say you turn the meat when it's in the brine -- every day or two? Thank you so much for this wonderful vid.

    First off, I would like to thank you Homestead Family for your willingness to share your knowledge so freely. I have NOT read all of the comments on this video and apologize if this question I have has been asked and answered already. You said good salt and listed several. I am wondering if I can use solar salt crystals--not pellets--that you can buy for a water softener. I buy that in bulk for ice control on my steps and driveway so always have that on hand anyhow and it is so reasonably priced for a large quantity. I use it in my kitchen already for salting pasta water and corn on the cob water, etc. Can I use this salt to make my corned beef? Anyone that has the answer to this question, I would be grateful if you could share!! Thank you again and have a very blessed day!!

    This may sound stupid but how do you cook it and at what temp..... cast iron on top or in oven etc. and at what temp?

    • hasher411
      hasher411 2 months ago

      Wayne The Seine, she said slow cook! .... I don't think it matters what method is utilized, just that its slow cooked! ... She might be placing it into a cast iron pot and on top of a old fashion wood burning cook stove for all we know! I'm sure an electric slow cooker set on low or medium, and left for the whole day would be just fine.

    • Wayne The Seine
      Wayne The Seine 3 months ago +1

      Nowhere in this video does it mention how to cook it once it is corned. She says cooked slow. No mention if on top the stove or in the oven...a crock pot...what? You really need to take up something besides trolling...you are damn poor at it.

    To keep the meat red, you need to add Salt Peter, about 2 oz. It stops the meat from browning.

    On another video, you said you used Animal Grade Redmond Real Salt, and I have looked at their agricultural page, and they have many salt products. Which one do you use? (We have a bay plant too; we have two, actually, and they're small trees by now, or a shrub, I guess, and we put them out in the summer.) And you've got a big crock you didn't have before on the countertop behind you. Is it a sauerkraut crock?

    • Homesteading Family
      Homesteading Family  6 months ago +1

      +etm567 - You know, I’m not sure what salt it is... I bought about 500 lbs a few years ago and it is stored in a big barrel out of its bag... sorry about that. We use that crock for all sorts of things, but in this video, I believe that it had a primary ferment of elderberry wine in it!

    USDA does recommend the salt peter or pink salt #1 in this case. For 5 pounds I use 1 tsp. I Put it in there to preserve the color and the meat. It prevents botulism. Look up the recommendation and do what you think best. Thanks for this great video!

      @rCougar214: I never use Pink salt with beef jerky. But I will use it when I make bacon. My advise is decide what you want to do then find videos on YT. Do NOT follow the first method on YT blindly.Go find others and compare. Eventually you will get to learn a lot by just watching the videos. Lots of people on YT do not explain the whole process. So by watching many videos you will eventually get the whole story.

    I don't ever remember eating corned beef, so I am looking forward to trying out your recipe. I am wondering; however, do you think it would work to instead of slow cooking it all day to pressure can it after it has had it's fermenting time? We are looking for recipes to can our freezer full of meat, so we can easily take it with us when we move next month. I am going to try your Pressure Canning Raw Meat recipe after I try the corned beef. Thank you for providing such excellent quality instructional videos.

    • Monique Paemoller
      Monique Paemoller 7 months ago

      I slow cooked the Corned Beef in a crockpot but I didn't rinse it enough (I guess) as it was super salty. It was fine when diluted by mixing it up in a huge salad. I have started a new batch - to pressure can this time after I rinse it REALLY well.

    • Homesteading Family
      Homesteading Family  7 months ago

      +Monique Paemoller You bet... I think it would work just fine! It will be really handy for a quick meal, too! Just be sure to pressure can it and you’ll be fine!

    Be careful storing any buckets of consumables on a cement or concrete floor. Those types of floors leech chemicals into food and water. That’s why videos I’ve watched about how to store barrels of water stress to put 2x4’s down first, then place barrels on top. Plywood would also work.

    I couldn't help but take a big wiff of the brine a few times a day while it was out on the counter. It was worth purchasing the extra supplies that I didn't already have in my spice cupboard. And I was a bit worried that putting those 4 cups of water in the crockpot would dilute all the flavor the brisket had been absorbing for days, but it retained an amazing seasoning that you just can't replicate from a store-bought spice kit.
