Natural Brine Corned Beef
Every St. Patrick’s Day, the beer turns green and the corned beef – pink. But did you know that signature color of most store-bought varieties is achieved through preservatives like nitrates and nitrites? Go natural by pairing our Pickling Spice Seasoning with Applewood Smoked Sea Salt for a brine that packs a ton of flavor into this classic meal. Not only is it easy to do from scratch, with a homemade brine you avoid unnecessary additives and can take credit for all the delicious and natural flavor.
4 Tbsp Pickling Spice Seasoning , crushed & divided
4 Tbsp Applewood Smoked Sea Salt, divided
1 Tbsp Onion Obsession Spice Blend
½ cup Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener (optional substitute for light brown sugar)
1½ cup kosher salt
½ cup light brown sugar
1 pound ice
4-5 lb whole beef brisket, trimmed of excess fat
10 medium red potatoes, quartered
1 large head green cabbage, cut into 8 equal wedges
4 medium carrots, peeled & cut into 3 to 4-inch pieces
garnish, fresh parsley leaves, chopped
special equipment: 2 gallon zip-top bag
Prepare brine by adding water to a large pot along with 3 Tablespoons crushed Pickling Spice Seasoning, 3 Tablespoons Applewood Smoked Sea Salt, kosher salt, and brown sugar (or monk fruit sweetener); heat to a boil. Once a full boil is reached, remove from heat and add ice. Chill to at least 45°F.
Place a 2-gallon zip-top bag in a large, leak-proof container. Add brisket and chilled brine to bag and seal; squeeze out air. Refrigerate 5 to 7 days, flipping brisket daily. Rinse brisket thoroughly and discard brine. Place brisket in a large pot; add enough water so brisket is submerged 1-inch below the water level; add remaining 1 Tablespoon crushed Pickling Spice Seasoning. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.
Maintain a low simmer 3 to 4 hours until meat is fork-tender; remove brisket and keep warm. To cooking liquid add potatoes and carrots, along with remaining 1 Tablespoon Applewood Smoked Sea Salt and Onion Obsession Spice Blend. Simmer until potatoes are almost tender; add cabbage and cook 10 to 15 minutes. Remove vegetables from liquid.
