- To capture that nostalgic flavor and consistently superior quality, we select each First Cut from our own briskets. We then add our special cure and seasonings which have been in the Nations Best® family since 1922. Try one bite of Nations Best® First Cuts, whether on a platter, or piled high on a sandwich, and you'll agree it's "That Perfect Slice of New York." (from Nation's Best)
Beef Cured with a Solution of Water, Salt, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Dextrose, Garlic Powder, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Nitrite.
