Rescuing too salty corned beef?

gmm | Sep 2, 2010 10:25 PM

Is there a good way to leech out some of the excess saltiness from a corned beef brisket that's already been cooked without diluting out too much of the flavor? I usually buy corned beef from a local meat market but they were out, so I purchased a commercially prepared brisket not realizing how much saltier it is than the one I usually buy. I still have the cooking liquid so I thought I might add water to it and just soak the cooked meat. Any better ideas?
