Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I've also used pork shoulder, leg of lamb, and even chicken (shorter brine time) with excellent results.

    Our go-to corned beef recipe. It can be a bit salty, so I bring the corned beef to a boil, drain off and replace with fresh water. Add the spices, then proceed per recipe.

    A very simple process with very little hands-on time. Makes a very flavorful corned beef.

    Ours was very moist also. It's a make again.

    Delicious. For next time, mix own pickling spice with less cinnamon and clove, more mustard seed.
