My home made corned beef is made from a sirloin tip, which should make it perfect for slicing into ultra-thin deli meat. I have three store-brand corned beef briskets, weighing in at 3, 4, and 4.5 lbs, approximate weight.
I have a son who will be home, and he loves corned beef. He usually ends up taking about half a roast, leaving the other half to be had between my DW and myself. I may have a daughter and SIL in the house this weekend as well.
All I ask of the two briskets that I'm going to cook up, is to leave me enough to make some home made corned beef hash. Yum.
