CS,B: When I was in college I met a student whose great-great-grandad invented root beer. Pharmacist by the name of Charles E. Hires. If you happen to bump into him, tell him I said thanks.
I love corned beef, but I’m not a fan of the mushy cabbage and veggies you get when it’s all prepared in the same slow cooker. With this recipe you’ll be cooking the beef, cabbage and other veggies and spuds separately so they’re all done just right.
Don’t leave the eyeballs attached. We don’t want this to get gross.
I’ve been using this brine exclusively for several years. It makes the turkey so moist and tender it almost falls apart like a good brisket.
