I went to a real butcher shop of good repute, Iowa Meat Farms in San Diego, and asked for a point piece that would be cooked on low in a crock pot. I started it on high for one hour before leaving the house and then left it on medium at 10:00 a.m. It never boiled. At 6:00, the edges were stringy off so I tried to cut it. Too difficult. Back in the crockpot for another two hours. Still hard to chew. Left it in until 9:00 when I cooled it and figured I will slice it thin tomorrow. Still chewy.
It was just covered with a cup of Guinness, a couple cups of water, a Tb brown sugar, a bay leaf, some garlic, and sliced onion. Carrots and cabbage were added in late afternoon -- they were dinner!
