Here is the recipe:
This has become a family favorite. When my children were little they loved going to Olive Garden because of their bread sticks. So when we moved to Haines Alaska when they were in High School, they would occasionally get nostalgic for their life back in Connecticut, I'd make them a batch of their favorite Olive Garden Bread Sticks (albeit healthier using organic flour). I've since up'd the game with this go to fav by adding in a tablespoon of our crowd raving Ultima Frontiera spice blend. My children, now adults, tell me this is way way way better than the bread sticks they enjoyed when they were younger.
This recipe uses our spice blend called "Hugh's Pickling Spice." It is for Fish, Meat and Veggies. Hugh is our neighbor who resurrected the hundred year old Fish packing company before turning it over to his son as he wanted to retire. Hugh mentioned this pickling blend could be used with lower quality cuts of beef in a pressure cooker to make an almost instant corned beef.
We used a pound of top round that had been in the freezer for a year. Brined it for 24 hours in 4 cups of water, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/8th cup salt, 1 tablespoon vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of pickling spice. After 24 hours, drain out the brine. Put the brined beef into the crock pot. Add in the 4 cup of soup stock. Put in 2 tablespoons of pickling spice. Once the pressure pot gets to pressure, cook for 30 - 45 minutes (the closer to 2 pounds, go for 45 minutes).
