Corned Beef baked?

I asked about this before, but can't find my old thread. some nice person on this list said Bake It!

I think it was boil for 20 minutes first to remove saltyness,
Wrap in foil and bake with appricot jam coating
then open foil and brown top under broiler.

I don't remember the time or temperature.
350f for 2 hrs
250f for 4 hrs?

maybe just check it after a while untill it is fork tender?

Thanks, Eric.

Either will work, actually. I'd do 350ºF until fork tender.

I have had it both ways. Prefer boiled. My family likes to use the pot liquor to mix in their veggies with butter.

Make sure you boil it first, or at least soak it for a while, changing the water 3 times or it will be really salty.

I forgot to do that once when smoking a corned beef, and it was horribly salty afterwards.

Corned Beef baked?

I should have first boiled the last one we got as a business gift from one of DH's customers years ago. I followed the directions on the package, and baked it without soaking or boiling. DH's parents were visiting, and they politely ate some, but to me, it was totally inedible. I threw it away, and made something else.

I've had pretty good luck making corned beef in the oven. Granted it's more of a braise then a bake, but I much prefer this cooking method to boiling because it retains the flavor better. I make my own brine (very easy and you can control the salt level) and leave it sit in the fridge for several days. Then I sear it and cook at 225F in a covered dutch oven with just enough white wine in the bottom to keep up the moisture level in the pot. It takes about 5 hours, but comes out very juicy and tender. You can easily do the same thing in a crock pot, if you want.
