Ingredients Convert to Imperial

  • 1.81 kg Certified Angus Beef® corned beef brisket with seasoning packet (4-5 lbs) *
  • 3 quarts water (48 oz)
  • 2 onions, halved and stuck with 2 cloves each
  • 6 carrots, peeled and halved
  • 1 large head cabbage, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh parsley
  • 12 peppercorns, crushed
  • 12 coriander seeds
  • 1 1-inch cinnamon stick

Directions:

Place corned beef and seasoning packet in large heavy pot; add water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour.

Add onions and carrots. Bring back to a boil and skim off fat. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer approximately 2 to 4 hours until beef is tender. When brisket pierces easily, it is ready.

Drain the water, place brisket on a platter and let stand about 10 minutes. Slice diagonally across the grain and serve with cabbage, carrots and onion.

Variations:

* Please carefully check ingredients of the corned beef seasoning packet to ensure it contains no dairy, if dairy-free is required.

* Other brands of corned beef may have higher calorie and fat content.

If desired, serve with boiled or baked potatoes. Serving suggestions are not included in the nutritional analysis.

Tips:

The cooking time listed includes the minimum 2 hours simmer time (over 4 lb. brisket, allow extra time).
