Went down to our local Walmart to get a corned beef brisket last night - sorry - we don't carry those anymore. Tried the other grocery store in town (small town) and they didn't have one either. HUM
So - I have a question. If you buy a corned beef brisket - and then soak it to get out all of the salt - do you really end up with just a regular flat brisket??
In other words, can I take a brisket flat and season it for pastrami - and end up with pastrami??? Or is there something special about starting with the corned beef brisket?
Thanks for the help.
