If you are like me, and I believe you are, there is nothing finer than corned beef. Except maybe pastrami. But considering what month we're in I think corned beef is the way to go. And I think you should corn your own beef because it is stupid easy and better than anything you can buy pre-corned.
I swear I'm not trying to be vulgar.
It just comes naturally.
Place the meat in the large dish, place the small dish on top, fill the
small dish with some heavy condiments and keep everything perfectly
straight and level.
Perfectly straight and level.
Now, we wait. Let this cure for one week. If you can be bothered, turn it daily. If not, whatever. It will still be awesome. This is a good Sunday activity because it takes 5 minutes to prepare, you can do it drunk on brunch mimosas or your 9 AM Guinness, and next Sunday's dinner is not only figured out, but ready to dump in a crock pot and ignore for 8 hours.
See you next weekend. *hic*
