The history of Corned Beef and Cabbage is truly a working-class dish and is used as an affordable option for meat. Corned beef or salt beef is salt-cured beef brisket and gets its name from the ‘corns’ of salt used to brine the heart and other spices. This salt brining process is an old preservation technique used worldwide and still today. The meat is marinated in the brine liquid before it is cooked, sliced, and eaten alongside cabbage or a sandwich. The canned corned beef we know today came during the industrial revolution and used the less desirable parts of the cow, which were then minced and canned for an even longer shelf life. The canning process brought Corned Beef to the Caribbean as an affordable working-class option for meat.
