Starting with a well-cured piece of corned brisket (see the preceding recipe), lovers of deli-style corned beef (“on rye with mustard, pickle on the side”) can now enjoy it in the quiet of their own homes. Once the beef has been rubbed with a collection of pungent seasonings, a stay in the refrigerator, followed by unsupervised gentle simmering, does the rest.
