    The traditional Irish dish - just in time for St. Paddy's Day! This requires 48-60 hours curing time in your fridge, but you get great-tasting corned beef in the end.

      I made this for St. Patrick's Day and it was absolutely the best corned beef I ever had. (I happen to start with an awesome piece of small farm, grass fed brisket so I couldn't be terrible!) I used 2 3/4 cups of sea salt and added 1 Tbs hot pepper flakes to the brine and more peppercorns to the pot. I kept it in the fridge for 4 days and cooked it. FABULOUS! I had enough for dinner for the two of us and enough left over to make great Reubens using my homemade sauerkraut. Great recipe, Evelyn!

      This is a very good corned beef recipe. However when I went to school 60 hours was 2.5 days not 5 days, so this was about right time to brine the brisket. It is better than most corned beef that you can buy ay wally world or most stores. thanks for the recipe Evelyn
