What Makes Corned Beef Brisket Special?

Corned beef brisket gets its unique flavor and tenderness through the process of corning. Though this term can be used for other cuts of beef as well, the combination of rich flavors from the fat and the tender lean meat of brisket is what truly sets it apart. The beef is cured in a salt solution, resulting in an exceptionally flavorful and tender brisket.
