I thought I had started a topic on this lunch meat. but it might have been submitted on CH.
Here’s my abbreviated backstory: I discovered Pressed Corned beef at the Deli counter of the butcher we frequent. This was well over 20 years ago, when I was still working, and brown bagged my lunch. I grew to love the taste and usually had it for at least two lunches in a five-day work week.
Suddenly, and abruptly, it disappeared from the deli counter offerings. I questioned the butcher and was told that the bulk loaves were a product of Argentina; (sole producer), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture had put the product under embargo and prevented it from being imported to the United States. Crushing news for me.
Years passed and I adjusted my sack meals to other things from the deli.
But then, after years of absence, it came back on the market! We started buying it again, and as I adjusted to the retired lifestyle, I had to find a way to make my lunch time a sandwich making time again. Here’s what a typical slice of Pressed Corned Beef looks like…
It’s expensive, at $7.49 per pound. But than, I justify the cost as an indulgence.
