For the love of Saint Patrick, let’s make some traditional Irish corned beef! Corned beef is a classic Irish dish that is made by pickling beef in brine (saltwater mixed with spices). This gives the beef a unique flavor and texture that pairs beautifully with cabbage and Guinness. The end result is a flavorful and tender piece of beef that is perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!
The pickling spice works by adding a sweet and spicy flavor to the corned beef, giving it that traditional taste with every bite. It also helps to tenderize the meat and give it a nice color. We recommend prepping your beef with the pickling spice brine 24 hours before you intend to cook it. More details on this below.
There are many different types of pickling spice, but a combination of any of the following spices should work well for corned beef:
