We do corned beef all the time in the crock pot, we get tired of pastrami all the time.
And yours looks great!!

Ritchie that looks tender and delicious. I’ll bet that was great with the cabbage and potatoes. Once I get bacon out of the way I plan on doing some pastrami from Pops brine using the same cut. I did it from knuckle last time and the flavor was great but a lot of chewy gristle parts.

Tropics, Nicely done Corned Beef! Did you use any additional spices with Pop's brine? I always use Pop's brine for turkey and it works perfectly for me... but never tried it with whole muscle....

jcam I was not impressed it was tender but not enough fat IMHO.

Looks good Richie . I know what you mean by not enough fat in that cut . I bet smoked it would have been moist and perfect for sandwiches .
Nice work .

I know what you mean Richie. It is great for sandwiches. Not so good for corned beef with cabbage and potatoes. Not enough fat. And it makes for a great Pastrami. Speaking of which. I need to make a trip to the garage freezer. I'm thinking about a hot Pastrami sandwich.
