Salt beef is meat that has been cured or preserved in salt. In the UK, salt beef refers to a form of beef cured in brine and then boiled. It’s usually served thickly sliced in sandwiches, or broken up and mixed with mashed potatoes and fried into a hash. The saltiness of the beef is a good match for strong, sour gherkins. Salt beef is commonly associated with Jewish cuisine.
