Beef Cut: Brisket
Steak Type: Corned beef

Corned beef, (also 'bully beef' in the UK), is a cut of beef (usually brisket, but sometimes round or silverside) cured or pickled in a seasoned brine. The "corn" in "corned beef" refers to the "corn" or grains of coarse salts used to cure it. The Oxford English Dictionary dates the usage of "corn," meaning "small hard particle, a grain, as of sand or salt," to 888, and the term "corned beef" to 1621.[1] The term "corned beef" can denote different styles of brine-cured beef, depending on the region. Some, like American-style corned beef, are highly seasoned and often considered delicatessen fare. Image File history File links BeefCutBrisket. ... For other uses, see Beef (disambiguation). ...

In the United States, corned beef is often purchased precooked, as in delicatessens. Perhaps the most famous sandwich made with it is the traditional corned beef on rye, a very thick sandwich made with thinly sliced corned beef, "Jewish" rye bread made with caraway seeds, and mustard or horseradish. Also famous is the Reuben sandwich, consisting of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island or Russian dressing on rye bread which is then grilled on a flat griddle or in a cast iron pan.

In the United States, corned beef is also associated with Saint Patrick's Day, when many Irish Americans eat a traditional meal of corned beef and cabbage. According to the History Channel,[2] while cabbage has become a traditional food item for Irish-Americans, corned beef was originally a substitute for Irish bacon in the late 1800s. Irish immigrants living in New York City's Lower East Side sought an equivalent in taste and texture to their traditional Irish bacon, and learned about this cheaper alternative to bacon from their Jewish neighbors. A similar dish is the New England boiled dinner, consisting of corned beef, cabbage, and root vegetables such as carrots, turnips, and potatoes, which is popular in New England and parts of Atlantic Canada. Also similar is the traditional Newfoundland boiled dinner, sometimes called "Jiggs' Dinner" which uses the same ingredients as a New England dinner, except that it uses Salt Beef. This is a meat cured in brine (essentially coarse salt and water) and was commonly used in the days of sailing ships and the fishery which was Newfoundland's main economic stay. The meat though similar to corned beef and smoked meat is markedly different in taste and initial preparation. Today it is sold as a delicacy and is wet packed in plastic pails to be sold in local grocery stores and in some Newfoundland specialty shops. St. ...
