Have a hankering to brine your own beef for corned beef brisket? Heres how! Plan to brine beef brisket 4-6 days in the refrigerator. This recipe was taught in a City Market class on homemade corned beef brisket. See the recipe for how to cook corned beef brisket with cabbage after you complete the brining process.
Measure all ingredients except brisket into a 4 quart pan, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. Remove brisket from its packaging and pat dry with paper towel. Pierce the meat all over with a skewer. Submerge beef in cold water, remove from water and pat dry. Submerge brisket in cooled brining liquid and weigh down with a plate or platter. Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 days.
