    Default How Do You Prefer To Cook Corned Beef?


    With St. Patrick's Day a month away now, I've been thinking of corned
    beef, and starting to really get hungry for it! Is it something you
    traditionally fix for St. Pat's Day? We always do, and other times of
    the year, as well.

    When you prepare it at home, how do you prefer fixing it? My mother use
    to bring it to a boil on top of the stove, drain the water, and then
    transfer it to a big roasting pan with the veggies and bake it, as
    that's the way my dad liked it. I've made it in the crock pot before and
    it would always turn out nice, but hubby likes to fix it for us and he
    does it on top of the stove. The meat is always so nice and tender, and
    he puts onions, cabbage, small white, or red potatoes and carrots in
    with it. I love the flavor of the veggies cooked in with the beef.
    Mmmmmm can't wait!!!! )

    In the bag it comes in, at a very low temperature, for a long time.

    I cook it in a smoker. Unlike regular brisket it doesn't usually need to be
    wrapped later in the process.

    It also tastes good simmered if not cooked to death, but your mom's method
    is more appealing to me. You can always boil the cabbage in the brine from
    the bag cut with some water.

    I usually boil it, and then finish in the oven to cook off some of the
    fat. This was a method recommended by Sheldon, I believe, and really
    like the results.

    Boil for an hour in spices, bake for two with veggies. Yep, my favorite
    method.

    Or at least close I don't want to boil out the flavor, nor bake out
    the moisture.

    I make the NY Corned Beef & Cabbage recipe. When it's done cooking you put
    the potatoes aside and create a great side dish.

    Boiling is okay (I like it), but I really like the oven method for
    corned beef. The problem is how to cook the potatoes and cabbage. I
    think this year, I'll roast the potatoes the way I usually do and
    roast the cabbage this way

    I should add that if I smoke it I add some pastrami type spices... a heavy
    coating of black pepper, ground coriander, and some garlic powder. Also it
    should be soaked or rinsed several times to reduce saltiness.

    I love corned beef brisket I've cooked it on the stovetop, in a crockpot
    and baked in the oven. It doesn't seem to come out any better or worse no
    matter how I cook it. I do par-boil it then put it in fresh water if I'm
    going to add vegetables to it. I don't mind salt but I don't want the
    potatoes and cabbage to taste overly salty as a result of the brine.

    I've noticed in the last few years that parboiling isn't necessary.
    Maybe it's just a west coast thing, but corned beef isn't as salty as
    it used to be.

    When this topic came up a couple of years ago, I and quite a few
    others pointed to Sheldon's method.
    Its salient features are to simmer the brisket for a half hour and
    then discard that water with its salt and nitrites. Then simmer
    again,
    adding fresh pickling spices. Then finish the brisket in the oven
    rubbed
    with brown sugar (or in our case, brown sugar and mustard). The oven
    finish makes a big difference. We've enjoyed it many times since I
    found it here on rfc.

    Attributed to Sheldon and Dmitri. I'm
    sure it's Google-able. -aem

    > sure it's Google-able. *-aem


    Here's what I saved from some time ago:

    corned beef -- thin-cut
    pickling spices
    whole carrots
    whole potatoes
    cabbage wedges
    brown sugar

    Choose good grade of thin-cut corned beef (I
    prefer Nathan's).

    Cook in the largest pot you own. Seriously, cook
    in lots of water.

    Rinse corned beef and and discard spices if
    present (old spices were used up), or save
    spice packet if present. Start in cold water.
    Bring to the boil (uncovered). Simmer 1/2 hour,
    dump water!

    Start in cold water (again? yes, again!). Add
    spice packet (if none exists or since you dumped
    the first batch, add new pickling spices. Bring to
    the boil, lower heat to low simmer. Simmer approx-
    imately 1 hour and add peeled carrots (whole) and
    unpeeled potatoes (whole), bring to simmer again
    and add cabbage wedges. Simmer til veggies are
    tender and remove. Continue simmering til corned
    beef is tender yet firm; test with fork.

    Remove corned beef to roasting pan fat side up,
    cover liberally with brown sugar, tent loosely with
    foil, and place in 325 F oven for 30-45 minutes.

    Remove corned beef from oven (now place veggies
    in oven to reheat). Let corned beef rest uncovered
    15 minutes. With sharp knife slice thinly across
    grain, and serve with veggies, mustard, and beer.

    I haven't bought a corned beef brisket in a couple of years, so I can only
    comment on past purchases. Perhaps it is less salty. <shrugs>
