Who's cooking Corned Beef for St. Patty's day? I am

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Here's my setup for corned beef - old school crock pot, DSV controller, flat cut CB brisket soaked in two water changes over night.  Then into a bag with a dash of olive oil, some pepper corns and bay leaves on the fat cap.  Ziploc vac bag and into the water bath at 170 F for 21 hrs.  I'll cool it tomorrow then slice and reheat as needed for O'Rubens.  Yeah that's how we like it . . .

I went vegan

We are invited to a block party (kinda mandatory really, since it's in the street right in front of our house) and I know that there are several folks who can't/don't eat meat so I made a super veggie, grains and pasta salad.  My husband tried it (my offical taste-tester) and gave it the 'thumbs up'.

I was also asked to make a dessert; I really should have made a gluten free something or another, but, I went with a simple yellow cake for all to enjoy rather than just two people.

Oddly enough I've been doing some web searching and such on Irish boiling bacon.  Found some interesting info on it, will likely be trying some out in the future.  The cure takes more than a few minutes, so I don't think it will be ready for Monday.

Here's what I took out of the bag this morning - maybe an 1/8" of fat in the separator and the brisket has really nice texture and great flavor.  After being in the fridge all day the liquid gelled and I used some of it for a pot of greens - delicious.

Very nice.  This morning at the store they had the corned beef on sale, I bought about a 2.5 pound hunk for $5.  Just doing the basic long simmer, I wasn't really planning on getting any, it was an impulse purchase.
