Best Answer

The earliest written evidence of 'corned beef' dates back to England of 1661, in a book, Anatomy Of Melancholy', by Richard Burton: "Beef, a strong and hearty meat...for labouring men if ordered aright, corned, young, of an ox (for all gelded meats in every species are held best)... "

The term "Corned" is derived from the art of placing meat into a crock and covering it with large rock-salt kernels termed "corns of salt", thus preserving the meat.
Corned beef is called corned beef as it is cured in large grains of salt. The Old English word corned referred the large grains of salt.
