Past few times I have bought fresh corned beef in slices, they don't come out of the packs in clean slices. They stick together and come out in bits. Anything I'm doing wrong?
Will not buy canned corned beef as I cut myself very badly some years back and put off buying it again.

    Let the pack come to room temperature,  then gently put the end of a knife between the slices to separate.

    I would disagree with the above, if it’s left to get to room temperature the fat warns up and the slices stick together. I have never had a problem with the slices sticking together when I take straight out of a cold fridge.

    Agree with the fridge thing, that's what I always did when I bought slices.

    I've never had corned beef slices, but some sliced cheeses do this (Mexicana is the worst!) and I've found a metal spatula/fish slice works well to get between slices and keep them whole.

    I won't buy corned beef now. Brazilian government standards aren't as good as EU standard Brazilian xorned beef. 
    Australia DOESN'T have a deal with the EU.
