Corn beef rubbery

I made corned beef and it's rubbery... Can it be fixed or do I need to toss it?

What cut of meat did you use and how did you treat it?

Try cooking it low and slow until tender. A slow cooker is handy for this. Or cover and braise in a low oven (~275F) for 4-6 hours.

How did you treat it? A good brining cure for corned beef is really a week to two weeks otherwise it will be tough. Then low heat / slow cooking.
