Drummond explained in her blog post that when she was newly married, she was super enthusiastic about trying to recreate her mom’s much-loved beef brisket recipe for St.Patrick’s Day. She prepped well, too, and got all the ingredients from the store, getting to work and marinating the meat for 18 hours to make sure that the meat was good to go. It took her another seven hours to prepare the dish as she popped it into the oven and waited. That’s a lot of hard work right there!
Unfortunately, when it was time to serve and sample the dish, things didn’t go as planned. “When my husband and I took our first bite of that lovely, tender meat, well… we spit it out and gagged. Turns out, I’d bought a corned beef brisket instead.” Oh no! The dish was way too salty, thanks to the fact that corned beef brisket doesn’t really need marination with savory add-ons, as Drummond explained. Hey, it can happen to anyone!
