It's called corned beef in Jamaica, corn beef in the U.S. and salt beef in the U.K., and they all reference and refer to salt-cured beef by products.
There are three main types:
1. Wet-cured in spiced brine - usually made from brisket or round steak, and tends to be supple and tender due to the brining process.
2. Dry-cured with granular salt beef - tends to be much drier and firmer in texture, even after rehydration, and can be made from various cuts of beef.
3. Canned minced salted meat - ground salted beef that is crumbly and oily, and made from various portions of beef.
