This year I thought about trying house-cured corned beef from one of the Bay Area’s many meat counters that are trying their hand at this for St. Paddy’s Day. But when I read that Roberts Corned Meats is celebrating a 100th anniversary this year, how could I stray?
Roberts started a Facebook page,
This afternoon I headed to SOMA, and the one parking space right next to the store was open. I took that as a sign that I’d made the right choice. I asked for a point cut brisket, about 6 pounds, and learned that the smallest available now would be 8 to 9 pounds. I looked at two, chose the one with more marbling, and it’s simmering now on the stove with the dry seasoning spices provided in a separate baggie.
This one weighed 8.45 pounds. The posted price is $3.49/lb. for corned beef brisket and I was only charged a flat $25. Gotta love old time family-owned businesses!
