INGREDIENTS: Corned Beef
1 Beef Brisket
1 Large Carrot
1 Yellow Onion
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1 ½ Cups Kosher Salt
2 Tbsp Mustard Seeds
1 Tbsp Allspice
1 Tbsp Paprika
3 Tbsp Sugar
2 Tbsp Cracked Pepper
2 Tsp Thyme
1 Tsp Sage
2 Bay Leaves
Mince rutabaga, carrot & onion in food processor. Combine all other ingredients in bowl except for beef brisket. Add rutabaga mixture and mix.
Rub mixture on all sides of brisket and place in bag with remaining mixture. Close bag, squeezing as much air out as possible. Put in bowl and weight down (with foil covered brick). Set in bottom of refrigerator to cure. Turn and massage meat daily to insure mixture is penetrating all sides. Do this for 2-4 weeks (3 is ideal). Meat will harden somewhat.
Before cooking, soak brisket in large bowl of cold water for 24 hours, changing water several times, this will soften back up the meat and release the salt.
Boil in water seasoned with peppercorns, mustard seeds & bay leaf for approximately 2 hours until fork tender.
