About corned beef
Corned beef, also called Irish salted beef, salt beef, or Irish corned beef, is beef that's been cured in salt. It's not related to corn, the popular vegetable. Corn gets its name from the Germanic word “kurnam,” which means “small seed.” Salted beef started to take on the name "corned beef" in the 17th century because it was preserved with "kernels" of rock salt. Salting beef to make corned beef keeps it from spoiling, and people have been cooking it for thousands of years. British and French sailors and soldiers started using it in the 17th century, and it was an important staple for colonists. It also helped feed soldiers in World War I and II.
Many people eat corned beef on St Patrick's Day. Ireland became the hub of corned beef production, but popularity drove up the price and made it too expensive for most Irish people, who turned to pork and potatoes. Irish immigrants often ate corned beef after coming to the United States in the 19th century. The cost was much lower, but people still thought of it as a luxury food.
People usually make corned beef from beef brisket, a cut of meat from the breast or lower chest of the cow. They sometimes use rump roast, bottom round, or even tongue. Even though it uses less expensive cuts of meat, cooking slowly at low temperatures makes corned beef more tender.
