  1. In a large stainless steel or cast iron pot, combine the salt, water and brisket. Cover and let sit for 7 days in the refrigerator. (Note: brisket must be completely submerged, so double the salt and water if necessary.)
  2. After 7 days, drain the brine and add 1 gallon fresh water, bay leaves and peppercorns. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low/medium low, and simmer for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.
  3. During the last 45 minutes of cooking, add the onion, cabbage, carrots, turnip, cilantro, and potatoes. Continue simmering until all vegetables are tender.

Thank God for big zip lock bags! You can corn anything in them with less brine and just turn over afew times in your vegetable compartment. You must remember to check that temp stays in mid 3...

Great recipe. Scales down well. Although not specifically stated, I think the meat needs to be lightly rinsed instead of just draining the brine. Any load of vegetables in pot are delectable.

First let me admit that I did use a pre-seasoned brisket from the grocery store. And I threw it in the crock pot for the day. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. My whole family absolute...

My first attempt at cornbeef and cabbage and it was great. I only soaked the cornbeef for about 5 hours prior to cooking it, I have talked to others about that and they said it really wasnt nece...

You only need to corn the brisket if you didn't buy a corned beef brisket. I have a hard time in my area finding corned beef brisket, so this recipe has allowed me to enjoy one of my all time f...
