    Remove meat from slow cooker. Place onto cutting board. Cut across grain into thin slices.

Tip #1

Corned beef brisket usually comes with pickling spices. If you choose a brisket that does not contain spices, add 1 tablespoon pickling spices. You can find them in the spice aisle of the supermarket.
