Corned Beef Spice Packet

I was shopping for corned beef to make my Corned Beef with Cabbage recipe for St. Patrick’s Day this year, and the only corned beef I could find didn’t come with a spice packet. This definitely left me wondering, “Can you make corned beef without a spice packet?”

It took a little testing, but I’m SO obsessed with this spice blend! It’s so much more flavorful than the spice packets, and I love that I can add as much seasoning as I want to (seriously those packets are way too tiny!).

How To Make It

It’s super simple to make! Just toast the whole spices, then pulse them a few times in a spice grinder or food processor. Mix all of those spices with the ground spices and add it to your boiling water when you cook the corned beef on the stove or in the slow cooker.
