I am cooking a corned beef point cut in the crock pot. My question is how long should I cook it to be super tender? I read to cook it 6 to 8 hours covered with water? Does this sound correct. I was going to do it on high covered in water for one hour then on low for 7 hours. Its 9:30 now, I want it done by around 6. Thank you for your help!!!
I’d go on high for 2 hours then on low for 6. By then it should be nice and tender. Place about 2" of broth or water in the bottom of the crockpot and season the top with pepper and sliced onions and BBQ sauce on top of the sliced onions. Don’t peek for the whole 8 hours, if you can stand it.
Here’s a recipe that sounds wonderful and had a great review.
A flavorful crockpot corned beef and cabbage, made with corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, and carrots.
6 to 8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into thick (about 1/2-inch) slices
3 medium carrots, thinly sliced
2 ribs celery, thinly sliced
1 corned beef brisket, about 3 pounds
1 cabbage, about 2 pounds
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups water
Lightly butter or spray a 5 to 6-quart crockpot; layer potato slices over bottom of pot with carrots. Place corned beef on vegetables. Slice cabbage into 8 wedges and arrange around meat. Sprinkle with the pepper and add water. Cover and cook on LOW setting for 7 to 8 hours, until meat and vegetables are tender.
Remove meat to a platter; cover with foil and rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.
