What makes our Corned Beef special?
We get a lot of questions about why our corned beef is better than what you can find at the grocery store. We are proud of the corned beef that we produce; here are the top three differences that make our corned beef special.
You can make less expensive corned beef by using frozen beef, or selecting lower quality grades of beef, but that’s not how we do things at Lake Geneva Country Meats.
We know most people either boil, roast, or slow cook their corned beef for a significant amount of time. During this cooking process, fat will melt out and the beef will become more tender. If you start with a low quality of meat for your corned beef, the meat will get dry and flavorless instead of juicy and delicious as it cooks.
That is why we stick to our strict quality standards – sure it costs a little more, but we don’t want to ruin your St. Patrick’s Day with dried out corned beef brisket!
After 60+ years in the meat industry, we’ve come up with a method of preparing corned beef that combines a quick injection with a long slow brine of the corned beef. We then include a ball full of authentic corning seasonings for you to use as you cook the corned beef.
We find that using this combination of methods gives the meat the best overall flavor distribution and offers both sweet, aromatic, and salty flavors. It takes more time, but we are proud of this unique method.
You can watch how we take a piece of fresh beef brisket and turn it into our signature Leahy’s Angus Beef Corned Beef by watching the video on this page.
Finally, members of the Leahy family – either Kathy or Nick, or both – personally taste each batch of St. Patrick’s Day corned beef brisket to make sure that it fits our quality and taste standards. Sometimes the beef needs to sit longer, or sometimes it reaches optimal flavor earlier than planned. It’s only with years of experience and personal care that we reach our ideal flavor profile.
When you buy corned beef from Lake Geneva Country Meats, you know the owners stand behind the quality!
