Braised beef?  Smoked beef / jerky?

As to what *I* would do with it now -- s-l-o-w cook "wet" OR barbecue,
braise-and-boil, or something similar.  Salt only at table, or as
sparingly as possible before that.  Slice / chop across the grain.

And if your resources run to it, the afore-mentioned home-corned beef
sounds marvy.
