Deli-Style Corn Beef...only BETTER
Tink's Eye of Round Roast made an awesome corned beef! Looks like lots of ingredients but it really is easy once everything is assembled:
Eye of Round
6 Tb. brown sugar
5 Tb sea salt
2 Tb ground black pepper
2 Tb ground allspice
4 Tb juniper berries
2 bay leaves
1 tsp mace
1/4 t cloves
1 Tb chopped garlic
1-2 tsp saltpeter (optional--for color retention...available online)
2-3 Tb molasses
Combine all the spices and the roast in a heavy-weight/freezer plastic bag. Fold bag tight around meat. Refrigerate for 3-4 days, turning bag once or twice a day...pressing spices into the meat.
To cook: In large pot, cover meat with water and a bottle of beer. Simmer 2-3 hours.
Great served at room temperature with other picnic foods or traditionally for a dinner with cabbage and potatoes!
