Why Salt Beef Sandwich Is A London Favorite

  • Published on Feb 4, 2018
  • The salt beef sandwich from Beigel Bake is London's best cheap eat. Beigel Bake hasn't changed its recipe since 1979, and for good reason: the shop has earned its fame by filling Londoners' stomachs 24/7.

    Is this just what we Americans call corned beef? Nothing wrong if it is. We don't have any delis where I live, but I've made it myself a few times by steaming it in a colander over a boiling pot and it looks just like this.

      +Frederick Röders kosher is set of rules for example- dairy and meat don't go together as per rules. That prevents bloated stomach and many other complications and all over good for gut health.

    For everyone saying boiled meat is weird and bland and yada yada yada it’s called salt beef for a reason it’s pretty salty and has a really good flavor just as it is and when you boil it right it’s all shreds kind of like crab meat does and it is the best shit even Americans can make beef stew and chicken pastry then sit there and wonder why other people boiling meats
