No Virginia, Corned Beef does NOT come from corn-fed cows! This was a favorite growing up in eastern Canada.

Top Review by Button Baker

This was fantastic! I added some mustard seeds and garlic powder also. I also used venison hindquarters(I did three of them). I cooked the first one at about 3 weeks and then each additional one a week after the last. They are awesome! I froze a lot of it and use it in a lot of different dishes that I make. Of course you don't want to add any salt to your recipes because the corned beef is pretty salty already. Thanks so much for a great recipe. I will be using this again and again!
