  • 1 (4 pound) Certified Angus Beef ® fresh corned beef brisket with seasoning packet

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 bay leaves

  1. Place corned beef and seasoning packet in large heavy pot; add water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour.
  2. Add onions and carrots. Bring back to a boil and skim off fat.
