Home cured, home made, home cooked corned beef.
Check it out, people. It takes days to cure before cooking. And it is that time of year. It's a good sign that it's finally corned beef and stout season. Longer days are already here and warmer days supposedly are slipping around the corner. I also love the theory behind this roast, soaking the meat in a brine solution with stout beer and pickling spices, the house filling with complicated smells as it cooks. Yet it's so easy to put the whole thing together on the stove and forget about it- welcome to my week. Ahh... forget about it.
