1/2 cup milk
5 tablespoon butter

Irish Bangers Recipe

2 tsp. ground white pepper
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp sage
1 tsp mace
3 oz salt
6 oz bread crumbs -plain
10 lbs. fat pork butt(if lean add 1 lb fat back)
2 cups ice water
Grind meat-1/2 medium, 1/2 fine
Add spices and mix very well

Corned Beef Recipe

1 corned beef brisket

6+ cups chicken broth (low salt / no salt)
1 tsp butter per cup of chicken broth

Get a large stock pot or crock pot. Place the brisket into the pot and add the chicken broth, save the spices and drippings in the bag. You will need enough chicken broth to cover the whole brisket. I’ve found, depending on the size of the pot, approximately 3-4 cups of broth per pound of brisket works best. You may need more or less depending on how much corned beef you are making, and the size of the pot you are making it in.

Bring to a boil and add the spices and drippings from the bag.

Boil for about 5 minutes (until all the spices and drippings are fully
mixed in) then reduce heat to medium.

Cook on medium for about 3 hours per pound, prepare any vegitables to be cooked in with corned beef during this time. (2 1/2lb brisket takes about 7 1/2 hrs from this point)

Check the beef with a fork every hour or so, add water to pot as liquid level drops. When it feels about done, cook it for another half hour and add the vegitables. Cook until the vegitables are done, then serve hot.
