Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
Hi, Davetnova. The corned beef I am talking about here is a slab of beef brisket, about 6 inches across, 12 inches long and 1.5 inches thick. It is pickled in a factory and then sealed in cry-o-vac, which is a heavy plastic that keeps the air out.

We do have the corned beef in cans, the cans with the little keys that usually break when you try to use them. It comes from Brazil or Argentina, usually, and I use it sometimes to make corned-beef hash.

There is also corned beef hash ready-made in a can, but I wouldn't feed it to my dog.

I don't know what the corned beef in the UK is like.
