It's best on the stove. Put it in a pan with enough water to cover the meat. Turn on the heat and let it come to a boil and then turn it down to let it simmer for 2 to 3 hours. The longer it cooks the more tender it will be. Most corned beef briskets come with a season packet. Add that into the water for flavor. Now if you want to do the cabbage, potatoes and such with it that's not a problem. Once the meat is done take it out of the water. Put in some cut up potatoes, some cut up carrots or baby carrots and a cut up small onion. Boil for fifteen minutes and then add in your cut up cabbage. Boil it until it's tender. IF the meat is cold then take out the vegetables and put back in the water for a few minutes. Then serve. Enjoy :)

Here where I live the corned beef can be bought in a pouch. It is already seasoned. I place it in a pot on the stove and cook slowly according to pouch directions. Then I let it cool down and brush it with barbeque sauce and broil it in the oven for a few minutes. I cook the potatoes and vegetables, cabbage and turnips separately.

Can you cover your pan? You dont have to cover the whole thing in water.. you just have to keep water in it as it cooks. I recommend cooking it with cabbage, green beans, potatos, carrots.. A crock pot would be easiest to do it in though.. I found some good deals at the Dollar Store on them.. it might be something you can look into! Good luck.. let me know how it turned out!
