Cooking time for 2 corned beefs in the same pot??

Midlife May 23, 2005 05:53 PM

I'm making a traditional New England Boiled Dinner for a bunch of guests tomorrow and will be using TWO 3.5 lb. corned beef briskets. The package directions say to boil for one hour per pound, and I know not to double that. But............ will two in the same pot require extra time? and how much? TIA

    It really shouldn't, as the hot liquid will surround both pieces, just make sure both briskets are roughly the same weight.

      As long as there is ample room in the pot, I would not add any cooking time.
