Planning the menu for your next dinner party or St. Patrick’s Day feast? There’s nothing quite like a classic plate of corned beef brisket, and we have the quality selection you need to satisfy any craving. Corned beef is salt-cured, and its name stems from the practice of slow-cooking beef with large rock-salt kernels that were popularly known as “corns” of salt. Each order of our USDA corned beef brisket includes seven pounds of meat, as well as a spice packet to give you a headstart on your traditional Irish meal.
Brisket became the standard for corned beef because a higher fat content will produce a moister meat even though the fat melts away as it cooks. Marbling is usually a telltale sign of a good cut of steak. Marbling is the intramuscular fat within leaner sections of beef, and our corned beef brisket features choice-grade marbling that will help you cook a restaurant-quality meal for your family or dinner guests. Our USDA corned beef brisket can be boiled, oven-braised, or slow-cooked. Beef brisket can also be left to soak in a brine for about a week.
