  • 6 1/2 lb Beef
  • 3 x Bay leaves
  • 10 x Cloves
  • 5 x Blades mace
  • Crushed clove garlic
  • 1/4 c Brown sugar

NOTE: prepare 7 days in advance of eating! Wipe meat over with a damp

fresh herbs. Rub seasoning well into meat; then lay mean on bed of
seasoning. Leave in a cool place (preferably not refrigerated, though).
Repeat rubbing each day. On the seventh day, put the meat into a saucepan
and cover with cold water. Bring to boiling point and simmer gently for 5
hours, when it should be tender. Put cooked meat on a flat dish and cover
with a board. Set weight on top of board until meat is cold, when it is
ready to carve and eat.
