  1. In a large stock pot, combine corned beef, pickling spice and vegetables. Add enough water to cover ingredients by 1 inch.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, cover and cook for 2 to 3 hours, until beef is tender.
  3. Remove beef from pot and place on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut beef against the grain into thin slices.
Chef's Note:
  1. You can buy your brisket pre-brined or complete this process yourself using a trusted recipe (if you choose to brine it yourself, plan for the process to take several days).
  2. Many pre-brined briskets come with a seasoning packet. For this recipe, leave out the seasoning packet and use Frontier Organic Pickling Spice blend instead.
