No pickling spice with the Corn Beef?

I have no pickling spice packets with my Corn Beef...
Can somebody tell me what spices I need to throw in the pot?

  1. All the flavors are in the meat already, but bay leaves, coriander, cloves, mace, black pepper, cinnamon stick, allspice, mustard seeds...

    1. I don't use the small packet of pickling spice that comes with the corned beef. I add garlic, bay leaf, whole peppercorns, onion, and sometimes a slight dose of red pepper.

      Pickling spice mixes are available in the supermarket.
