Is there any help/fix for tough corned beef, sliced thick, that I bought from the deli in my store? Cook more? How? What? Please help. Thank you so very much, ahead of time.

I used to use a deli style corned beef in a restaurant. One of them was made from a Pork loin. It was only good when sliced real thin. If this is what you got there isn't much you could do. If its from a brisket and it isn't tender I would braise it with some cabbage so it kind of steams to tenderness....

I'm sure the issue is resolved, but I've gotten in the habit of making "Rueben Galumpkis". Chop, pull, or grind the CB, mix with sauerkraut and a little grated carrot and roll the mixture in steamed cabbage leaves. Bake in either a thin tomato sauce, or a Bloody Mary (my favorite).
