Brisket vs. Round

Most of the time you are going to get corned beef made from brisket. I did an an exception to that with the Shenson Corned Beef. Its made from round, not brisket. Maybe its a California thing?

Most of the time when you are buying corned beef you are choosing between flat and point cut brisket. But in this case, you are getting beef from the round or back end of the cow.

Does it matter? Well, round is leaner than brisket. The meat has a different texture, which makes brisket better for corned beef. Not to say you shouldnt give corned beef round a try, but I wouldnt ever pick it over brisket.

Make Your Own

If you are interested in corning your own beef, then Costco is a great place to go. They have a great price on brisket. You can sometimes buy a whole USDA prime brisket for under $6 per pound, which is a great deal. It is a lot of meat, I would cut off what you need for now and freeze the rest unless you are really ambitious with your corned beef making.

If you dont want as much meat, you can get just a flat cut brisket portion for $11.99/lb. Clearly its cheaper by the pound to buy the whole prime brisket if they have it. Look for whole choice brisket as well.

We dont have a recipe to fully corn the beef, but we do have a method to quickly brine a brisket.
