Steamed corned beef is a classic Bahamian dish also known as 'Fire Engine'. Traditionally served with grits for breakfast or with white rice for lunch or dinner. Steam is a Bahamian term for anything fried down and simmered in a tomato base (bologna, pork chops or chicken can also be served this way).
