So What Is Corned Beef?

It’s a salt cured beef brisket. With the name corned beef coming from the curing treatment process, as it uses large grained rock salt that is also called ‘corns’ of salt. Corn beef can either be pink or grey depending if the recipe has used nitrates or nitrites. These convert the myoglobin which gives the beef that pink colour.

What Does Corned Beef Taste Like?

Corned beef like most salt cured recipes has a slight briny & salty taste. Plus that strong meaty flavour you get from beef. It is commonly cooked again with many recipes using spices, sugar and vinegar. This gives it a more balanced flavour. In my recipe below I use natural sweetness and acidity from the sweetcorn and tomatoes. Then tabasco and onion to add depth.
