Pulled Corn Beef

By Chef Kevin Dundon

This comforting broth has the flavor of home at Easter for me. You'll need brisket or silver side for this recipe, and the cooking process is long and slow, but it makes the meat tender and juicy.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5kg (3 1/4lb) corned beef silverside (bottom round), cut in half
  • 250ml (1 cup) beer
  • 2 oranges, halved
  • 1 garlic bulb, crushed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 4 tbsp honey 
  • 4 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 3 star anise
  • 2 tsp black peppercorns
  • 500ml (2 cups) water
  • 1 onion, cut into wedges
  • 500g (1lb 2oz) potatoes (or 4 potatoes), quartered
  • 500g (1lb 2oz) baby carrots (or 4 carrots cut into batons about 6cm/2 1/2 inches long)
  • 200g (7oz) baby turnips (or 1/4 large turnip cut into small chunks)
  • 1 small head of cabbage, about 300g (10 1/2oz), cut into wedges

Directions:

  1. Place the beef in a large saucepan with the beer, oranges, garlic, bay leaf, thyme sprigs, honey, vinegar, spices and peppercorns and cover with water.
  2. Put a lid on the pan and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 2 1/2–3 hours, topping up the water during cooking if necessary, until a fork can be easily inserted into the center of the meat.
  3. Carefully remove the beef and put it on a cutting board to rest for about for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the 500ml (2 cups) of water to the pan and bring to the boil over a medium heat.
  5. Put in the vegetables and bring back up to the boil.
  6. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for 15–20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  7. Discard the orange pieces.
  8. Use 2 forks to pull the meat apart.
  9. Divide it between bowls and serve with the broth and vegetables.
