You really can't over cook corned beef. I mean you can but that takes effort;) Where did you find such a small corned beef:eek:
I was happy to find a small size in the grocery store, as they usually only have bigger ones -- maybe 4-8 pounds in the cryovac packages that they sell. Anyway, I'm baffled as to what went wrong. Last year, I had a larger piece, and don't recall any issues.

We had a smaller piece also (about 3 pounds) and we cooked it in the Instapot and it came out perfect!

I suggest driving down here the day before or ordering from a local place;)
I would actually do that, even up here. The problem is that without going to the few crowded places that cooked Irish dinners, there really aren't many other options, other than cooking your own at home.

That said, one of the grocery stores cooked a full meal (to go) and I could have bought those, but I just figured I could handle boiling meat for a few hours on the stove. What could possibly go wrong? :p

We are having our corned beef dinner tonight. I have mine roasting in the oven, that usually works well and turns out tender. There are a few times the corned beef has been tough but I think it was more the meat quality than my cooking. Hope tonight's is good. My roast is small too, just a couple pounds.
Corned beef is a brisket so it's a very tough cut to start with, so good luck to all who try and cook one not knowing how it was in it's original state

Two items that I depended on post hurricane recovery cleaning and repairing up my home when no power for weeks was canned corned beef and Spam. When I was so hungry eating from a can never tasted so good. Also side note - many kinds of Spam which is a favorite among locals in Hawaii when I visited, fried, grilled , on sushi , or straight out of the can with white rice and potato salad in HI.

I love Corn dogs, but I didn't have any today. I had a Reuben Sandwich with leftover corned beef.
Cracker Barrel used to have a very good Reuben Sandwich for a reasonable price, but they dropped it from their menu with no warning. There is a Deli close by that has good ones also but it's about $12 for one and I do not like Reuben's enough to pay that much for one. One of the many things that I become very frugal (cheap) about.

They're no too terribly difficult to make as long as you've thought far enough ahead to ferment the sauerkraut.;)

I missed the cold drink served in a frozen mug at Cracker Barrel when you ordered a drink. This was discontinued a few years ago.

Good food and a good time…!!!!! :happy:
