What internal temp for corned beef?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I picked up a couple of corned beef points at walmart yesterday. I have two 4lbers. packages says to cook to 160.  I have always cooked brisket to 190-200. 

What suggestions do you have for internal temps?

As far as I know 205, I did my first last Sunday and I checked it and it was at 203 and took it right out since I was anxious and couldn't wait lol. Anywhere from 200-205 is fine, put it in the reefer for 2 days and then steam to 295 and slice, otherwise slice and eat it right away but apparently texture and tenderness will not be the same!

I usually simmered mine in the water bath till about 190 for slicing. Don't want it to shred away on the plate.....Willie

160 is safe temp,  I would simmer on low heat in lots of water till you get the tenderness you are looking for.
