Corned beef recipe sounds delish

This is probably better made with the brisket, but it is expensive if you can find it. I usually make it with a roast about two inches thick.

Corned Beef

6 lbs. Beef brisket

8 c. Water

1 c. Quick Cure Curing Salt

3 tbsp. Sugar

1 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. Pickling Spice

2 Bay leaves

2 cloves minced Garlic

Cover meat with water. Bring to a boil. Let cool slightly. Add remaining ingredients. Put weight on top to keep meat submerged. Let sit for 36 hrs. Or more. Drain and wash thoroughly in cold water. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Simmer for two hours or until tender. Leave in water until ready to use.

When it is ready I usually make corned beef and cabbage, Reuben sandwiches, but I’m sure there are many things to make.
