Homemade Corned Beef

Did you know that you can make your own corned beef with little effort? All you need is your own cheap cut of beef. I stock up on them when my store has the BOGO sales. You will also need a large pot, salt, sugar and water. Put the roast in the pot. Mix in about 1/2 cup of sugar and salt with water and fill to cover roast. Stick it in the fridge for two to three days. Flip it every 12 hours or set a can on the roast to keep it under water. You can leave it in to soak for longer if you want, but I have found that three days is long enough for me. Pour off the soak and pour in fresh water. For the season pack that comes with it, I make my own with allspice, cumin, celery seed, a bay leaf and garlic.

Interesting... I usually just wait until they go on sale for cheaper than any other cut of meat and stock my freezer. We like to eat it year round.
