  • 2 quarts water
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon saltpepper (not necessary, it just gives the corned beef that pink color)

  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1.5 tablespoons pickling spices
  • 4 bay leaves


  • Boil water, add salt(s), let cool.
  • Place thawed brisket in tupperware container and in pour salt water so it fully covers meat.
