Tips & Tricks:

  • “Corned” brisket just describes the way its been cured. It has a very red color even after it’s cooked and tastes very salty.
  • The longer you cook it the more tender it will be.
  • Cut against the grain of the meat when you’re ready to serve it.
  • If you don’t have a slow cooker you can put it in a roasting pan and in the oven on the lowest setting.
