Flat Cut Vs. Point Cut

Corned Beef is usually available in two different cuts, flat cut and point cut. Which should you use?

After a little research I discovered that a flat cut corned beef was the way to go. It is easier to find and it is lean and when cooked properly, it is tender and flavorful. Sliced across the grain, the slices of corned beef are fantastic for sandwiches the next day, or they can be diced for a wonderful meal of corned beef hash. A Point Cut, looks like it’s name, it comes to a point at the end.

Don’t add the cabbage until the last hour though if you are going to use it.
