Spiced Beef -Takes 15 days to spice before cooking.

Spiced Beef

Spiced beef takes 15 days to fully mature , well worth waiting for.



ingredients -serves 24

8 lb (3.5 kg) piece rolled brisket or silverside (beefcut from the rump), boned and trimmed
3/4 oz (20 g) allspice berries
1/2 cup (90 g) soft brown sugar
6 oz (175 g) sea salt 1 1/2 oz (40 g) black peppercorns
1/2 oz (15 g) cardamom seeds
2 bay leaves, crumbled 10 fl oz (300 ml) hot water

Method
1. Rub the meat with the sugar and place in a large, glazed pan or pot, not aluminium, in which the meat can lie flat.

2. Cover with a cloth and leave in a cool place for 2 days. Crush together the sea salt and all the spices (except the bay leaves) in a blender or with a mortar and pestle, then add the bay leaves.

3. Rub into the meat and leave in a cool place. Turn and baste the beef every 2 days for 12 days.

4. Take the meat from the pan and wipe clean. Place in a baking pan and add the hot water.

5. Cover with layers of foil or put on a lid. Bake in the oven for 6 hours in a Pre-Heated oven Gas Mark 1, 250°F (130°C ) then remove. When cool, wrap the beef in greaseproof paper and let it stand for 12 hours.

6. Keep it in a cool place at all times. Slice thinly across the grain to serve

Got a family gathering coming end of June. This would be ideal for that.
Could it be bbq or better off in the oven?

I have only cooked this dish in the main oven. Its all about the slowness that makes this dish magical. Personally I'd stick to the oven only for this one.

i just noticed it says at the end keep in cool place at all times. Reminded me of a cured ham I had once, and that was served always cold. The curing took sometime. Might be that curing process means its not a serve hot dish.

Thanks. I have started this recipe off already. The sugar and spices smell wonderful. Might use that as an aftershave. Lol
