All About

Corned beef

Although its origins are unknown, corned beef likely became popular when people started to preserve meat by salt-curing. There are different techniques you can use to make corned beef, such as brisket, or it may be pickled or brined. It's most popular in savory sandwiches like a Reuben, which garnishes the corned beef with mustard, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Russian dressing.
