Corned Beef  
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.
