Not bad for a first try. It came out a little salty, because I forgot about it and left it on the cure for a week. Next time I think 4 days will be about right.
Now I just have to go the the deli and get them to slice it like this- it's just too much work to keep doing it by hand. Isn't it pretty? It almost makes me want to make stained-meat windows, except that it's too tasty.
