Used Pops Brine again on 2 small Brisket flat cuts cured for 19 days.

Soaked in ice water for 3 hours using the low salt I think I took to much salt out

I brown both sides

Then make it all happy with 2 cans of PBR
a Bay leave & tea ball with picking spice

Bring to a boil then lower heat to a low boil

Turn it over after an hour let it go another hour
start checking for tenderness with tooth pick.
I add the tatters at that time,when I recheck the
meat is usually done and tatters are ready
Remove meat and tatters add cabbage to the pot
Slice as thick or thin as you like I like thin

Super tender

That's a great looking Patty's Day meal right there Richie, real nice job. I've never seen brisket flats for as inexpensive as corned beef goes for in March. I've heard of guys brining tri tip into corned beef, I'm gonna need to get a garage fridge! Like. RAY

Mind blown how tender it looks Richie! Never boiled one- just straight in the smoker or roaster oven to cook it like pastrami. I must try this! I might have to add a little liquid smoke if I do though... Like!
