    Interesting brine... reddish? Paprika? Never seen a red brine for CB. I love the cabbage/potato/carrot boiled dinner!

    I think the red color is from the blood in the meat mixing with the brine over time, I have no idea what the spices are in there but it sure is good [​IMG]

    DonO, that meal looks really good! I've not tried a corned beef and cabbage dinner. Are you boiling the meat in plain water or have you added spices?

    Details, if you've got the time! [​IMG]

    all I do is open the bag and dump the brisket with the brine and spices into the pot, fill it with water and bring it to a boil, turn it down to simmer and let it simmer all day, add water as needed, when the brisket starts to come apart when you lift it with a carving fork, it's time to take it out.
    put the brisket on a pan cover it with foil and keep it warm in the oven, then add your potatoes and carrots to the same water/brine and spice that you cooked the brisket in cook it till the potatoes are almost done. then add a cabbage head cut into 8 , the cabbage takes no more then 20 minutes to boil

    then start eatingand singing irish pub songs lol[​IMG]

    I pour a bottle or two of beer into my boil. Not sure if it helps, but it makes me feel better. Kimel bread? Yep, gotta love boiled dinner.[​IMG]
