My buddy will be making his own corned beef for St. Paddy's Day. I'm going to help him eat it.
Though it's really to keep the meat that nice pink color, does anyone know where in LA to get sodium nitrate (aka "pink salt" I believe)?
I bought a 5# bag of pink salt from LAX-C. It's way more than you need but it is the right stuff. My home Corned Beef was delicious.
Hi Matt, what is LAX-C exactly, and where?
Think of it as an Asian food warehouse
1100 N. main St.Los Angeles, CA 90012Tel (323) 343-9000lax-c.com
Excellent. I'll have to check that out for Asian food too! Thanks.
Canton Foods on Alameda sells its too for cheap. LAX-C charges extra for credit card while Canton doesn't FYI.

Look for products like Instacure#, which is salt and 6% sodium nitrite. Pure sodium nitrite is not sold in consumer quantities.
I have seen it at Surfas.
