Organic Salt Beef Slices

Treat yourself to a deli classic - part of our organic charcuterie range

It might be associated with indulgent, high-piled sandwiches from New York delis, but salt beef is a traditional delicacy also historically connected with England and Ireland. It's made from our organic grass-fed beef brisket, a hard-working joint taken from between the front legs of the beef carcass. The robust texture and hearty flavour of brisket make it perfect for curing, as it's able to hold both its shape and taste throughout the process.

Salt beef is first cured in a brine bath. This soaking process allows the meat to absorb the salty liquid so the joint doesn't dry out on cooking. Traditionally, the brine was intended as a means of preservation, with the distinctive, intense flavour coming as a bonus. In the 1600s, in the absence of refrigeration, the English started preserving meat with chunky salt crystals the size of kernels of corn. That's why salt beef is otherwise known as 'corned' beef. Once the beef has been brined for a good week or so, it's gently boiled until it's yieldingly tender. Any fat marbling will have melted away and the meat is left soft, flaky and deeply flavoured. We try to keep our recipe as simple and natural as possible letting the flavour of our beef shine through.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.

  • All of our meat is butchered in our in-house organic butchery by our small, experienced team.

Salt beef is at its best when served in a hearty sandwich. Cut and toast thick slices of rustic white bread then load them up with tangy mustard mayo. Add a thinly sliced dill pickle, layer on as much salt beef as you dare and top with a slice of Emmental cheese. Blast briefly under the grill until the cheese is melted and oozy, top with the second piece of toast and tuck in. Just make sure no-one's watching.
