Sliced Salt Beef, 500g

£ 14.00



Our Sliced Salt Beef is made from only the best top quality brisket. This is a fatty, flavoursome cut of meat from the underside of a cow. The beef is boned, rolled and cured for several days in a salty brine solution. After this, it is then slow cooked in a gently flavoured broth until soft and tender. Treating the meat in this way turns a cheaper cut into something incredibly tasty. It literally melts in the mouth and has an amazing soft buttery texture.

The history of salt beef dates back to ancient times when salt was used as a means of preserving meat. However, nowadays it is frequently associated with and seen as an integral part of traditional Jewish cuisine.

It is usually served thickly sliced in sandwiches, or broken up and mixed with mashed potatoes and fried into a hash. It is absolutely unbeatable piled high on a bagel or rye bread, topped up with plenty of pickles and slathered with mustard.

So, if you are hankering after some traditional Jewish East End fare or an authentic New York Deli experience at home, you should definitely try out our fantastic Sliced Salt Beef. It is absolutely delicious.
