Mortons Sugar Cure

Can I make a corned beef with it?

Has anybody tried it for that?

I use to use Morton Tender Quick. Less sugar and no, despite the name it isn't a tenderizer. http://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-make...f-for-st-78650

Yes, I know there are other products. I've used the #1 pink salt with good results. But I have a 5 pound bag of sugar cure I need to use. Just wondering if it will work for corned beef.

E-how actually suggests using it. How to Use Morton's Sugar Cure | eHow but I can't comment from personal experience. How to Use Morton's Sugar Cure | eHow

Oddly when you search Sugar Cure at Mortons it returns tender quick. Does what you have contain sodium nitrite?

No Nitrite. But it lists 1.5% nitrate.

Thanks for the link, I'll give it a try.

Probably why no longer on Morton's site. From what I have read there has been a switch in recent years to using potassium nitrite instead of potassium nitrate for health reasons.

You can corn beef without the cure salt, however the results will be meat that is brown in color instead of the traditional bright pink meat. Won't take away from the taste just a visual. I get my pink cure salt from Bass Pro Shops and a little goes a long way and is a fail safe against botulism.
