Long, slow cooking tenderizes the brisket, which is the centerpiece of this hearty, one-dish meal. Trim fat from meat. Place in a 4-to 6-quart pot; add juices and spices from package of beef. Add enough water to cover meat. Add pepper and bay leaves. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 2 hours or till meat is almost tender. Add carrots, parsnips or rutabaga, and onions to meat. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Scrub potatoes; halve or quarter. Add potatoes and cabbage to pot. Cover and cook about 20 minutes more or till vegetables and meat are tender. Discard bay leaves. Remove meat from pot. Thinly slice meat across the grain. Transfer meat and vegetables to a serving platter. Makes 6 servings. *If your brisket comes with an additional packet of spices, add it instead of the pepper and bay leaves called for in the ingredient list.

What does across the grain mean?
rjw7579 1m ago
Beef and other meats have a "grain" (think of wood grain) that runs in generally parallel lines. To "cut across the grain" means to slice perpendicular -- i.e., at a right angle -- to these lines. - Steve Murch 1m ago

Basically this is the way I make corned beef and cabbage, however, I hate parsnips(Grandma made us eat them as kids,yuk!),so I omitted them, and added quartered ears of corn-on-the-cob. Turned out great! I wanted to check and see if 2 hours is the usual cooking time for the brisket, and that seems to be the minimum cooking time most use.

I have made this several times, for 2 at home and for 10 at the firehouse. Great, easy recipe.
