You’ll need enough water to completely cover the meat, and usually 4 cups of water (and 1/4 cup of salt) will do the trick.

How long should beef sit in brine?

As a general rule of thumb, brine meat for about one hour per pound. You can go longer, but keep in mind that it’s definitely possible to over-brine your meat. Most over-brining simply makes everything a little too salty, and you can soak the meat in cold water to draw out the excess salt.
