    Posted for a request, I did make this once for fun. You have to ask your butcher for this cut well before St. Patrick's Day, before they turn them all into the prepared corned beef's.

      Rub each side evenly with salt mixture; place in a 2-gallon-size zipper-lock bag, forcing out as much air as possible.

    6. 6
      Rinse meat and pat dry.

      Add vegetables from category 2 and bring to a boil; cover and simmer until all vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes longer.
    14. 14
      Meanwhile, remove the meat from oven and cut across the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices.
    15. 15
      Transfer vegetables to meat platter, moisten with additional broth and serve.

      This is a wonderful recipe from the cookbook called The Best Recipe. I highly recommend it. The beef brisket is divided into two portions that you will find in the store; the point cut and the flat cut. The point cut is fattier (and therefore more flavorful) and you often have to ask the butcher to get it for you. Remember, this recipe is showing you how to corn the beef yourself, so be sure to get beef brisket and not an already corned beef brisket!
