  • 2 tbsp coriander
  • 2 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp anise seeds

  • Toast coriander, peppercorns, mustard seeds, and anise seeds in a cast iron skillet for two to three minutes, or until fragrant.
  • Add crushed bay leaves and crushed red pepper flakes for the last 30 seconds.
  • Pour contents of the pan into a spice mill and pulse a few times to release the flavor of the spices.
  • Store in an air-tight container. 
  • Use as much of the spice mix as you'd like to season your corned beef before cooking.
