Eoins Recipe for Tasty Spice Beef:-

“First you have to corn the beef – salt it in brine.

Then it goes into wet spice barrels with brown sugar, pimento, ground cloves and juniper berries (I add in a few other things that I’m not going to disclose!) for one week.
Once the spice has permeated the whole way through, the beef goes a kind of purple colour.  Then it’s rolled in dry spice, a dry mix of the wet spice, then it’s matured for about a week. 
You need sodium nitrate or saltpetre for the brine – that’s what gives it its colour.  If you don’t have that it goes kind of grey”.
