NOTE: Please see the recipe for Corned Beef and Cabbage for complete instructions. This video leaves out these instructions from the recipe: "Rinse brisket; discard brine. Place in a large pot. Add enough water to cover by 2 inches. Add onion, celery, and carrot, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until very tender, 3 to 3-1/2 hours." It is important to discard the brine solution and add new water to the pot before you boil the beef. Do not boil the corned beef in the brine.
