    Pastrami is naturally red because of the cure. Trust me, it is not raw...😂 It was cooked to 205°F/96°C. Now I would like to ask you why do you think the cure did not go all the way thru the brisket? What's your theory? Mine is because of the weights. Yours?

    Try 'Jacarding' the meat to allow total penetration of the brine.

Juniper flavour is treated as soap flavour because we don't use this in our kitchens... So embarassing... I'll try to make a honest pastrami for this first shot

    Kretieg3 חודשים לפני

    Mr. Guga, Juniper berrys are an important ingredient in pastrami brine. I keep them on hand and it does not take very many. 10-14 depending on brisket size. Your brisket did not cure all the way. The average brine time is 10-14 days but a minimum of 10. Only the largest brisket can be brined 14 days without being too salty. If you brine a smaller one that long, you will have to make corned beef with it by boiling it for 15 minutes, dumping the water and then boiling it until tender. I have done many this way. I am not trying to be critical with no constructive input and hope my experience proves useful to you.
