corned

beef

and this is your standard already brined ready to cook corned beef ok it's got a side that's lean and a side that's got a little bit of fat cap if we're not going to trim it nicely so I'm going to pass one here on the meat side and I'm going to brush it with a little bit of garlic oil and I'm going to drizzle our rub generously dry you're going to want to cover the surface you're going to want to stroke it I'm going to flip it do the same with the fat side and we also have to get the sides so you should rub a lot I want you to get all the sides in every nook and cranny it doesn't matter how inappropriate it looks or feel good once our corned beef has been completely covered in the dry marinade we will begin the wrapping process so my fat side is on top.

I'm going to wrap that in a package like that okay I'm going to put another piece of foil down, flip it over so the seam is down, thick side down, I'm going to go. ng to wrap it up nicely in a package just like I did the first time I'm going to place that on a piece of aluminum foil okay I'm going to wrap it up now remember the fat side inside is down so when you wrap this one up , I'm going to flip it so that the seam is down and the fat side on the inside is up, so in summary, you're going to triple wrap it in heavy duty aluminum foil, ideally the fat side when it goes into the oven will be on top once. once it's been wrapped I'm going to put that in a baking dish and that's going to go in an oven under 225 degrees for a long time how long six hours oh yeah I'm not kidding so set your timer 225 six hours later take it out I let mine cool for a few hours at room temperature.

I put it in a bag and refrigerate it overnight. I recommend that you refrigerate it overnight. and roll and there we go looks pretty awesome it's a little wet ok now you can start cutting this. and make sandwiches but I like to do this I put it on a tray with some foil there should be a little bit of dry batter left I sprinkle it with just a little touch I set my broiler to high heat and put this on. about six eight inches under the heat and I just surface broil it for about three or four minutes just to dry it out and give it that nice look so that's optional but I recommend it well once it's done I go to the cutting board and i start slicing my pastrami by the way you can trim off as much fat as you want i think you should keep a little bit though it is an important component of the flavor when you heat it up now you can eat it this cold but that would drive you crazy because what you want to do is put a pan on simmer put some slices in there give it a few drops of water and slowly heat that up and what we're looking for is to see that fat see how it starts out it comes out white and then it

turn

s translucent and gives up some of the fat that's well done just the you want to heat up and i'm pretty sure you know the rest we're going to toss this in some rye mustard highly recommended and don't be shy i'm going to place that in there i'm going to cut this in half and look at that of course don't forget the pickle which is mandatory ok i'm going to bite into this and you can see how amazingly tender it is amazingly aromatic quite spicy than black. the pepper hits you right on the nose that little hint of smokiness from the paprika simulating the smoking of the brisket which is how traditional pastrami is made of course and there you have quick and easy
