What is corned beef made of?
Corned beef is a beef that’s been brined and cured with salt and seasonings. Corned beef gets its distinctive pink color from sodium nitrate which is used during the curing process. Corned beef comes in multiple different cuts, and it’s always best to cook corned beef for a long period of time so that it becomes tender.
How do you buy corned beef?
The first step to this recipe is to choose your meat. Most stores sell pre-seasoned corned beef, especially in March. There are a few different cuts of corned beef to chose from, including corned beef round roast, flat cut brisket, and point cut brisket. The round roast tends to have the least fat, but is also much more prone to drying out for that same reason.
Flat cut brisket and point cut brisket tend to be the better corned beef options. I used a flat cut brisket for these photos, as you can see by the uniform size and shape of the slices. Point cut brisket is the fattiest cut, but can also sometimes be the most tender. So it’s really up to you which cut you use!
