I saw bucket of something in the meat dept. at one of our local stores. I asked a young meat cutter what it was . He didn't know so we asked an older butcher . He said it was salt beef plate. I have never heard of it & the guy said that people from Newfoundland love it.

It was cured beef plate (Navel). I didn't realize there are so many different types. It was a 10 pound bucket & it was 25 bucks I think. I know a lot of Navies ran on salt fish & salt beef.

How would you use a bucket full?!

I wonder if you rinse it like you do with salt fish? See all the other products they have? Pickled pig tongues!

When I looked up the brand I saw this story. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/slush-for-christmas-1.5399672

You don't just rinse salt beef. You have to soak it in water for at least a couple of hours, changing the water frequently. If you don't get rid of most of the salt, the beef is inedible.

Yeah we used to soak salt fish overnight & simmer it & change the water again. 

Then you add cut up potatoes & cook them. Mash them up with some green onion & make fish cakes!

Who knew??? Bucket O Meat........Brilliant!!!
I’m assuming it is a cross between cured meat and dried beef or the cross between corned beef and wet jerky !!!
Probably great in soups, dips, casseroles and an accompaniment to many things that need a little bit of meaty texture as well as the salty beefy flavor.
I can think of many dip / condiment ideas for a bucket of this stuff !!!
I think the Canucks have have been holding back on us and hiding in da weeds!!!
First it was Poutine, now it’s Buckets O’ Meat. AKA, da BOM !!! They’re so sneaky!!!
Slammer!!!

I'd think our friends across the pond would know more about how to use this because Newfoundland is more British than Canadian! I'm sure fishermen brought it from the British Isles along with their customs & accents still prevalent today.

Funnily enough Bob, most of us wouldn't have a clue.  We all learn at school about salt beef and ships biscuits, but salt beef or even corned beef are not common items here, in fact I have never seen either for sale.  I think that corned beef as you guys know it is available in Jewish food shops, but not in mainstream shops or areas, at least not that I've seen.  To a Brit, corned beef is a can of processed almost ground beef that is sliced and put in sandwiches.  Whenever I want the North American version, or to make pastrami, I have to cure/brine the beef myself.

Corned beef in the states is salted brisket. It is cooked with potatoes and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day. A traditional Irish dish, acording to my Irish mother.

The stuff in a can is called corned beef hash. It looks, smells, and tastes like dog food. Dad served it fried, along with pancakes and eggs on Saturday mornings.

Canned corned beef hash fried crisp with a couple of poached eggs and slathered in hot sauce is my idea of a guilty pleasure. 
 

What we call "corned" beef, the Brits call "salt beef" and the Canucks  call "smoked meat". I've eaten it in all three countries, and I just call it good.

Uh, not quite.  Corned beef, or pastrami, is cured.  Smoked meat is genuinely smoked -- I've made some many times with my Big Green Egg: low heat, six to eight hours.  Let it cool, then when you want sandwiches, you steam the meat to reheat.

That's my take on it too.   Our cut of brisket is different, ok for corned beef but no good for pastrami so when I make it I have a friendly butcher who cuts it straight from a side of beef for me.

HP sauce is my favourite, also it goes great in a toasted sandwich.

Get yourself a tin of corned dog and give it a go Bob.

Did you buy a bucket of beef by the way? That looks right up my street, I'd love to see something like that in the shops over here.

You know what? I should! There are 3 buckets left! 

I was thinking it was ordered for a Newfie Screech In. When i moved here Terry had a lot of friends at the Legion. 

I met some Newfies & having lived on the east coast we hit it off.

They invited us to a screech in in Victoria. They didn't have a dead puffin to kiss so it was a mackerel instead,

I still have the certificate somewhere. Proud to be an Honorary Newfie.

I suspect they're pretty similar Bob, I think it all comes from South America.  I grew up on it and I like it.  That said, I'd definitely be up for a bucket of beef right now!
