Fair grounds corned beef

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
12 pounds Corned beef brisket
3 Bay leaves
1 teaspoon Ground ginger
1 teaspoon Dill seed
10 Whole cloves
1 tablespoon Red chiles; chopped
1 tablespoon Whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon Ground mace
1 teaspoon Cardamom
1 teaspoon Mustard seeds
1 tablespoon Coriander
½ teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Allspice
¼ cup Salt


Place brisket in heavy stock pot and cover with water. Mix all seasoning together except salt. Put all ingredients in a cheese-cloth bag and tie together. Boil brisket and seasoning together with salt for 2-½ to 3 hours. To test, stick a fork in the middle of brisket; it should come out easy when done. Cool and slice. Pour a little of the stock over the brisket for added flavor. Serve with your favorite smothered cabbage recipe. This recipe is from the Fair Grounds Race Track in New Orleans. They are famous for their corned beef. This 100-year old landmark burned to the ground last year and it was a sad day for all New Orleanians.
