My Brisket recipe

Brine Ingredients

2L water

1c salt

1/2c vinegar

4tbs sugar (optional)

1tbs peppercorns

1tbs mustard seeds

3 bay leaves

pinch ground cloves

To corn the brisket put all the brine ingredients in a pot and heat to a boil or until the salt has mixed in. Allow the brine to cool and then pour over brisket in a plastic container until it is covered and sit in the fridge for 1 week.

Cooking liquid Ingredients

Cured Brisket


1/2tsp whole cloves

1tbs peppercorns

1tbs mustard seeds

2tbs crushed garlic

Rinse the brisket, discard the brine and put it in the slow cooker. Cover with water and add all the ingredients. Cook on low for 8 hrs or high for 4 hours. I will often cook it for longer than this.

Tip: I use the same recipe to corn and cook silverside as well.
