How To Make Corned Beef Brisket

You’re reading this article, it means you’re ready to try your hand and making your owned Corned Beef. I am so excited! When I set out to make my owned corned beef, I’ll admit that I was a little intimidated. However, after realizing how seemingly easy and wildly delicious it is, I can say with full confidence and enthusiasm: it’s worth it!


To brine the brisket you’ll need:

  • Bay leaves
  • Whole cloves
  • Black peppercorns
  • Brown sugar
  • Salt
  • Pink salt (also known as Prague Powder)
  • Pickling spices
  • Garlic
  • Ground allspice
  • Water
  • Beef Brisket

After the brisket has brined for 7 days (yes, 7 days!), it’s removed from the brine and placed into  a large stockpot filled with water and a handful of additional ingredients:

  • Cinnamon stick
  • Mustard seeds
  • Peppercorns
  • Bay leaves

The brisket is slowly simmered for 3 hours until it’s fork tender and shreds easily.
