You would bring to a boil and then simmer cover for about 2 hours (that is how I make mine) andwiches on rye with swiss is good for by itself with mustard....

Actually, corned beef is made from beef brisket. Corned beef is a beef brisket that is brined.

A beef brisket is a fairly tough piece of beef. You need to cook it in liquid for 4-5 hours in the oven to make sure it is tender. You could also cook it in the crock pot. You can just use beef broth or wine with bbq sauce and just let it cook away in the oven. It makes great sandwiches.

I discovered the joys of brisket while living in Oklahoma--seems to be very popular there. Here is an excellent recipe for Sweet and Savory Brisket. It is super-easy and my family loves it.

1 (3 - 4 pound) trimmed beef brisket, halved
⅓ cup grape jelly
1 cup ketchup
1 (1 ounce) packet dry onion soup mix
¾ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions:
Place half brisket in slow cooker. In bowl, combine jelly, ketchup, soup mix and pepper and spread half over meat.

Top with remaining brisket and pour remaining ketchup mixture over top. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or until meat is tender. Slice brisket and serve with cooking juices.

Saucy Beef Brisket

1 (5 lb.) beef brisket
1-1/2 cups ginger ale
1-1/2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1 (1 lb.) package baby carrots
6 small red potatoes, quartered

Place brisket, fat side up, in an aluminum foil-lined roasting pan.

Stir together ginger ale, ketchup, and teriyaki sauce; pour over brisket.

Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 3 hours. Add carrots and potatoes. Cover and cook 30 more minutes or until brisket and vegetables are tender.

Remove brisket and vegetables from pan, reserving sauce mixture in pan; let stand 20 minutes. Cut brisket across the grain into thin slices using a sharp knife. Pour sauce over sliced brisket and vegetables to keep moist.

Brisket is popular here in Texas too...never even had it before we moved here LOL. The best thing on it is Claude's brisket sauce. Not sure if you can find it where you are but it is yummy. We marinade it overnight then cook very slowly in the oven in more sauce for a long time. Then you must have ranch beans and cole slaw with it ;)

Liquid smoke and ranch beans

Liquid Smoke is a food ingredient used to add a smokey flavor, similar to what is obtained when cooking over an open wood fire. The product is produced by burning hardwood chips (notably hickory) and condensing the smoke particles with water into a liquid form. The liquid is then scrubbed and filtered to remove all impurities. It is most often added to sauces and marinades to flavor meat, poultry, and seafood. (From Wikipedia)

Ranch Style Beans are a brand name product from ConAgra foods. They are basically pinto beans cooked with a blend of southwestern spices that go well with steaks, barbeque and mexican food.

That's about as much help as I can be.
