Not going shopping till wednesday and trying to use up what I have. I threw a tin of corned beef in the trolley the other week and OH was smirking saying he hadn't eaten this since university (20 years ago :eek: ) and what on earth was I going to do with it? In the only corned beef recipe I could find in the Squeak's index, it is not clear how long to cook everything for.........can't find any others on this site (maybe not searching properly). Can anybody help..... and I would really appreciate a recipe that doesn't involve too much frying or hours of prep.....and oh tastes delicious so OH will eat it and eat his words too:rotfl:

    just do a corned beef hash. par boil some potatoes, and fry off some onions. put corned beef in a dish and then i suppose some gravy and then the mashed potatoes on top. oven bake for a bit, serve with carrots.
    maybe not eh???
    HTH,
    Rob.

    There's a recipe for corned beef hash... though I did a quick and easy one a while back:-

    Boil your potatoes for the usual time. Mash it till it's mostly done. Add diced corned beef and mash a little more - but not so much that everything blurs together. Serve with lashings of gravy and veg of your choice.

    If you have a slow cooker there's a Corned beef curry in the Recipe Collection, and if you don't - just cook it in a casserole dish in a moderate oven for a couple of hours or so :)

    I reserve baked beans for the tuna version! Replace the CB with tuna and serve with baked beans and, as you say, crusty bread :)

    Can't eat the stuff brings back to many memories of saturday lunch times. of cornbeef and mash for lunch.

    I have tried to eat it since but no go. And don't think cornbeef hash would be help.

    But I have feeling in the states when they refer to cornbeef it is not the stuff in the tins.

    Yours

    I've just made this for tea :rotfl:


    Boiled up some baby new spuds earlier today, and left them to cool, before chopping into bite size chunks (skins still on). Fry diced onion and potato in a little oil, then add chopped corned beef and fry few more mins before chucking in a tin of baked beans and simmer till heated through! Season with pepper and lashings of Worcestershire sauce .... YUM!!! :D

    Corned Beef Fritters - basically, slice your CB, dip in batter and deep fry few a few minutes.

    Corned Beef Hotpot - slice corned beef, sliced par boiled potatoes, layer in a casserole dish, pour on some stock and bake in the oven, until the potatoes are soft, top is crispy.

    Corned Beefcakes :- mix mashed corned beef with some mashed potato, form into rounds (like beefburgers), dip in egg and breadcrumbs - chill for half hour in the fridge, then fry on both sides until cooked through and golden.

    Corned beef is not the same without the onion ingredient that is part of c/b hash. I don't much care for it sliced with mash & veg, or in a sandwich, as you really do need the fried onion to bring out the true flavour. So please don't write-off c/b hash (any recipe so long as there is onion in it) until you've tried it!

    Corned beef makes a lovely pie, especially cold with salad.

    Lightly fry a finely chopped onion, mix with a spoonful or two of leftover mash and a good dash of worcestershire sauce and mix with the mashed corned beef. Lay strips of pastry on top of the pie, or make three slashes on top as it tends to rise a bit.

    This is even better eaten cold.
