Corned Beef

Corned beef requires long, slow cooking. It's a perfect Crockpot dish.

Corned Beef
Beef brisket4 lbs
Mustard seeds1 tsp
Caraway seeds1 tsp
Peppercorns1/2 tsp
Coriander1/2 tsp

Crush mustard seeds, caraway, coriander and peppercorns*. Rub into both sides of beef brisket.
Pour 1 cup of water in bottom of crockpot, and add brisket.
Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.
Slice thinly to serve.

*If your corned beef comes with a spice packet, use that instead.
*I use a small coffee grinder to crush whole seeds.

This looks yummy. How do you figure the cost per serving with the different meats?

There are a couple databases maintained by the US Department of Agriculture that provide most of the information.

I do a little math with the data, and can come up with a cost per serving.
