Hudson has 34 years experience in the Newcastle area and has come to help with some easy recipes for home. These recipes are designed for every day cooking at home so anyone can do them with what you have in your cupboard. Our butchers have tried these recipes and love how simple they are to put together.
Place Beef and the Pickling Juice in Slow Cooker / Large Pot.
Add 1 ½ cups of brown sugar (The sugar balances the saltiness of the pickling juice) 10 black peppercorns or cracked pepper, 5 coves if you have them, 2 large onions. Add cold water to cover.
If using a slow cooker – place on slow setting and leave for around 6 hours (great if you put on in the morning before going to work or watching a couple of movies).
If using a pot on stove top - bring to the boil and then turn down to a simmer with the lid on. This will take about 2 ½ hours as long as it is on very low heat.
How to know when its cooked? Stab the Corned Beef with a carving fork. The beef should slip off the fork. If it grabs the fork and doesn’t slide off it will need a bit longer.
