How to Start a Corned Beef Making Business
I. Estimated Investment Cost
C. Raw Materials/ Ingredients/ Packaging Material
The curing method is applied in corned beef making. This involves the application of salt, sugar, nitrate, and other chemical preservatives that kill micro-organisms or delay microbial action.
1. Select quality meat.
2. Cut meat into 1 1/2inches. The best beef cut is brisket (punta y pecho) but any cut will do.
3. Prepare the cover pickle (40 salinity). Immerse the meat in the cover pickle.
4. Cure at room temperature for 8-10 hours or in a refrigerator for 1-2 days. After curing, wash meat for 20 seconds to remove excess salt.
5. Cook in pressure cooker for 45-60 minutes or in open fire for 4-6 hours. Mix the cooking ingredients with 2 cups of water.
6. Remove meat from the stock (sabaw) and flake.
7. Pack in polyethylene bags and keep inside a freezer.
• 1kg. meat will produce 700 g. of lean and 300 g. of stock (sabaw).
• To get the yield of 1000 g., bring to a boil the following until they thicken, and add to 700 g. meat: For a 300 g. stock solution add ½ tsp. Vetsin after flaking, 2 tbsp. Trimix, and 1 tsp. Carageenan (previously
dissolved in ¼ cup water.
To increase yield, add 100-200 g. of pork skin to the meat before pressure cooking.
III. Estimated Costing and Pricing
After mixing all ingredients with the 1 kg. meat, finished product should weigh a total of 1.3 kgs.
* The higher the volume of production per day (i.e., more than 35 kgs.), the lower the production cost, thus increasing the markup to more than 10%.
* If price per kilogram is lower compared with the existing market price, increase markup to more than 10%.
