                  Actually serious post: you can’t recycle plastic wrap! Especially if it’s contaminated with food (but even if it isn’t)! Plastic wrap is a common cause of machines getting jammed up at recycling plants!

                                Thank you Brad, I made this for my parents (minus the guiness) and they loved the flavor. They are used to a salted meat boiled dinner but these flavors put it over the top. Merci merci merci!

                                  My family always cooks the beef in a vinegar and honey(with spices and herbs) mixture, instead of just plain water/spice mixture

                                                    Why can’t you just boil the meat in the brine, diluted with more water and with added fresh spices? Wouldn’t it just intensify the flavor?
