Fair Grounds Corned Beef

Home | Recipes | F
Beef Meat


  • 12 lb Corned beef brisket
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • 1 ts Ground ginger
  • 1 ts Dill seed
  • 10 Whole cloves
  • 1 tb Red chiles; chopped
  • 1 tb Whole black peppercorns
  • 1 ts Ground mace
  • 1 ts Cardamom
  • 1 ts Mustard seeds
  • 1 tb Coriander
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1 ts Allspice
  • 1/4 c Salt


Place brisket in heavy stock pot and cover with water. Mix all seasoning together except salt. Put all ingredients in a cheese-cloth bag and tie together. Boil brisket and seasoning together with salt for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. To test, stick a fork in the middle of brisket; it should come out easy when done. Cool and slice. Pour a little of the stock over the brisket for added flavor. Serve with your favorite smothered cabbage recipe. This recipe is from the Fair Grounds Race Track in New Orleans. They are famous for their corned beef. This 100-year old landmark burned to the ground last year and it was a sad day for all New Orleanians.
