Serves or Makes: 8 entrées


2 lbs Carve™ Premium Ontario Beef Top Sirloin Butt
1 cup Kosher salt
1/2 cup Fine white sugar
3 tbsp. Pickling spice
4 Bay leaves
3 Garlic cloves, peeled
4 Red chili peppers
3 lbs. Pure gold yellow potatoes
1 Green Ontario cabbage
2 lbs. Large Ontario carrots
2 lbs. Turnips, cubed
8 tbsp. Triple crunch mustard
1 Loaf sourdough bread

  1. Mix all ingredients in a pot large enough to hold everything; whisk until combined.
  2. Place beef in brine and hold in your fridge for a week (up to two weeks), covered.
  3. Remove beef and rinse from brine. Place in a pot of fresh, cold water and bring to simmer with the top butt the star of the show.
  4. Add 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes cut in quarters; 1 head of green cabbage, quartered; 2 pounds carrots, cut into 2-inch chunks; and 2 pounds rutabaga cubes.
  5. When all is tender, remove the corned beef from the pot and pull in nice, thick chunks. Arrange the fork-tender vegetables in the bowl and pour some of the broth over all of it.
  6. Serve with warm bread, cold butter and mustard.
