Purchase a 3 lb. flat cut corned beef brisket. This will feed a family of 6.
Place your brisket in a large pot. Cover the brisket with water, and then sit the lid on the pot. Bring the water to a boil, and then reduce the heat to simmer. Allow the brisket to simmer for four hours.
If you try to cook your corned beef brisket too quickly, it will become dry, and too tough to chew.
Options: Rub 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 2 tsp. paprika, and 1/2 tsp. of dill on the corned beef brisket before you place it in the pot.
