I just chuck it in a pan, shake over some brown sugar, add a big splash of vinegar, cover with boiling water and cook for about 2 and a half hours. Add some carrots towards the end of cooking time. Starting at 3 would be fine (even if it's a frozen lump) :)

I use a crockpot myself, however, you can do it in a stock pot or large saucepan. To help speed up the process use boiled water from the jug. Rinse meat under cold tap first, then into pan, covering with water. Add a good 1 -2tbsp of malt vinegar, a 1tbsp approx of soft brown sugar, a couple of bay leaves and about 6 whole cloves. it is the long slow cooking that makes it tender. Cook slowly till tender.

I don't think that starting at 3pm and especially if it's frozen is long enough. It needs long, slow cooking

45 minutes per 500 grams is the normal. I wash the red sticky goo off first then put it in a pot of water with a generous splash of malt vinegar, a heaped tablespoon of brown sugar, a few cloves, some black peppercorns and a bayleaf. Another nice variation is to also put in the peel from one orange. I also turn it over from time to time and check that the water level doesn't get below that of the corned beef.

Its better cooked slowly. Bring to Boil and then simmer it. I cook it in Crockpot all day with Vinager & Brown Sugar & Pepper & Salt.
