How to Make Marinated Beef
The first step should be noted: don’t wash the beef when you buy it!!!! Direct salt curing, 10 grams of salt per pound of meat, no less, I tried many times, more will feel the saltiness of bacon, and then It’s like a pickle on top of something heavy.
Usually marinate for 2-3 days, turn once every 24 hours and keep pressing! Keep it in the refrigerator when the temperature is high, or in a cool place in the winter (if you’re in a hurry, you can marinate it in the morning and brine it in the evening, but the beef will taste better). (almost)
The day before the end of the marinade we can prepare the stock for the marinade, I went to the market late and didn’t get the beef bones, next time here to re-up the picture How to operate: wash the beef leg bones, cold water in a pot, boil over high heat, there is a lot of foam out after the fire, with warm water to wash the beef leg bones Clean, then add water to the casserole, add the bones and ginger and bring to a boil, remove the foam again, then add the knots of onion, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Turn off the heat and chill in the refrigerator until the sauce turns white.
The day the beef is marinated, prepare the spices, put them in a saran wrap, and make marinade packets!
(Next time) Take out the chilled beef stock, put the white oil and some of the stock on the surface into the pot of marinated meat (don’t waste the rest of the soup, it is very popular to make curry potato beef soup), then add water into the pot of marinated meat, here you have to have the number, that is, it can be all over the beef, add it at once, then don’t add it halfway through the marinated meat, then put all the marinated beef ingredients except chicken, sesame oil and salt into the pot, cook on high heat for 10 minutes, turn off the heat and wait for use.
Take the marinated meat out of the pot and rinse it with water, quickly, just rinse the surface, then put it in a pan of cold water.
Take it out and rinse each piece of meat again, cleaner this time.
Boil the marinade again just cooked, put the beef, put sesame oil after boiling, taste the taste and then put salt, and then turn down the heat to braise for about 60-90 minutes, chopsticks can be easily inserted can turn off the heat, like chicken essence at this time.
I usually stew for about 20 minutes after turning off the heat, or the meat is too rotten to like, you can operate according to your own preferences.
I brined the brisket this time. It’s a great balance of fat and lean.
Crispy, melt-in-your-mouth brisket
Like it sliced, eat it with your own dipping sauce: bell pepper, cilantro, sesame oil, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, shallots, sesame seeds, try it, it’s delicious!
