A meat dish that refers to cuts of beef
that have been cured or pickled in a salt brine solution and then cooked. The beef brisket is most often used when preparing corned beef
, but cuts from the round primal and at times, the tongue, are sometimes used. When served, corned beef is thinly sliced for deli-style sandwiches, or it is served as a main dish. It is often prepared with cooked cabbage
, and many people like it as an ingredient in hash recipes
. In the United States, it is often associated with the St. Patrick’s Day
holiday, served as a complete corned beef and cabbage
dinner accompanied by other cooked vegetables, such as potatoes and carrots.
