Quick Answers



How do you prepare corned beef?

Corned beef is made from a less-tender cut of beef such as brisket, rump or round. It requires long, moist cooking on top of the stove, in the oven, microwave, or slow cooker. Use a meat thermometer to ensure doneness. The internal temperature should reach 160F. Allow the brisket to stand for 10 minutes after removing from heat.
