fourteen pounds of brisket


You knew it would not be long before I broke down and made way too much corned beef, in fact it wasnt even 24 hours. Nintey-nine cents a pound and enough sandwiches to feed a small militia. You see this lovely cabbage? Its a savoy cabbage and it is milder, tastier and greener than a regular old cabbage. I had mentioned promotions taking place this week but things were not going the way I wanted them to so all the goodies are going to have to wait a few more days until all the precious details get ironed out, its going to be good though - trust me.


Two loaves of Levy's seedless rye (I need to get two loaves because they are half loaves), spicy mustard mixed with horseradish and cabbage, lightly steamed. This, to me, is the ultimate way to eat a corned beef sandwich, its the only way I eat a corned beef sandwich in fact its the only way I eat about two or three in a sitting.


This is a mini half that I made for the little guy, he ate two like this. There is still half a cow left so gear up for some hash and eggs!

What a price! I paid $3.20 a lb., and my main store was out of it!

Bob said...

Dude, I will help with your brisket! Heh. I was toying with buying some today.

Your picture of that cabbage belongs on the front cover of our finest food magazines. Beautiful. Your sandwich looks wonderful. I ran out of corned beef before I could make hash! I'll have to live vicariously through you.

I just recently discovered savoy cabbage and I will probably never eat the other stuff again! Made colcannon for the first time with it and it was heavenly. Beautiful pictures!

I bet that sandwich is delicious. Great idea to put the cabbage in with the corned beef and I like your mustard idea too!

Creative Mish said...

What is the trick in cooking corned beef?

Stacey Snacks said...

Now that's a sandwich fit for a king!

Chou said...

Where do you fall on the nitrate vs nitrate-free discussion?

It was great to catch up tonight. Looking forward to seeing your recap!

Jeannie said...

Beautiful cabbage and sandwich! I'd love some of that too:)

Thank you for demonstrating the ONLY way to properly construct and consume a corned beef sandwich. No mayo, white bread or other toppings. I am now going to go get me one of those.

Sippity Sup said...

That savoy cabbage is fantastic! GREG PS I read about your Marx cooking event. Cool.

too much... never

teresa said...

delicious! i wasn't hungry until i took a gander at your sandwiches!

Tangled Noodle said...

14lbs and at 99cents/lb?! Those are impressive numbers. We polished off a 2.5-pounder in no time flat, then wanted more. So I'll take some off your hands, especially if they're already in sandwich form!

Looks like a manly meal to me!

sophia said...

Wow. Do you sell your products? Please share some of your amazing corned beef!

by the way, how is the savoy cabbage retaining all its fresh, brilliant greenness? Mine usually goes kinda gray!

Vanillastrawberryspringfields said...

Love that S'which....gorgeous brisket for sure:-)))))
and love the greens in the deliciously delicious pics.....

I'll have to try savoy cabbage - not a huge fan of the regular kind, although I love sauerkraut!
