Salt beef is a great traditional meat that is largely underused in the UK. We use brisket, which is brined and then boiled for hours, in the same way that you would with a joint of gammon, creating a really moist and amazingly juicy texture because of its high fat content. Buy your salt beef brined and cooked from a top quality butcher. This dish is great as a starter or a main course lunch dish. It’s a simple but good hearty salad.
