Can I make our St Paddy's Day 11 lb corned beef brisket in the oven?

Most recipes I'm finding call for both boiling and baking in oven. I would prefer to do the whole thing in the oven if possible. Will that work well or should I boil & bake?
Also, what temp, how long?

While searching the board I found someone's colcannon recipe and will probably make that. Off to read the recent soda bread thread...

Thanks very much and Happy St Patrick's Day!

  1. you can do it just in the oven- I never boil first. If I do use the stovetop method, I simmer though, not boil, as it would make it tough. Based on your size, I guess you have more than just the flat cut portion.

    I usually put it in covered on 300 degrees. Be sure that there is liquid (water,beer or broth) so that it just covers the beef. I usually cook the 4 lb one for about 3 hrs.

      Thank you, pamd. I used dijon and brown sugar and some dark beer and did as you said, poured in the liquid, covered it up (actually sealed it in foil) and it is smelling really good in here! Thanks again for your help, I was afraid I was starting too late and was very glad to read your response.

      I've got bacon frying for some sauteed cabbage and I'm going to go put together a soda bread for the oven right now.

        Just to let you know it came out beautifully. Very tender and flavorful. Thanks again for your help!

          glad to hear- I use brown sugar & beer as you did, along with some other stuff. Happy St. Patty's day!
