  1. Pat the meat dry to remove any remaining bits from the brine
  2. Place all of the ingredients in a stockpot, with enough water to cover the meat. Cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Gently simmer until the beef is done, approximately 2+ hours. The internal temperature should be 185° for a tender corned beef. Remove the meat from the stockpot, and slice and serve
