    Corned beef Help 6th Jun 05 at 5:00 PM
    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 ) 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

    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.

    I've just made this for tea


    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!!!

    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.

    I haven't tried these because they're not my personal taste, but here are a couple of "traditional" additions to corned beef hash:

    Stir some cooked cabbage in towards the end, kind of corned beef bubble&squeak

    Cook your CB/diced potatoes/onion in a frying pan till nearly done, make a well in the centre and break in a couple of eggs and cook till they're set.

    My Mum used to make a lovely stew with chunks of corned beef inside the dumplings, I'm not sure of the exact recipe (think it involved a tin of Campbell's soup) but I suppose you could make a vegetable casserole with Corned Beef Dumplings. I think I ought to get her recipe book off my brother

    An American friend raves about their version of corned beef, she says it's a bit similar to what we would call salt beef. I think she said they cook it very slowly till it goes all soft.

    I have a recipe for Chaos casserole:

    I tin corned beef cut into cubes
    1 tin new potatoes
    1 tin baked beans

    Tip all into a large casserole and heat thru in oven. Can top with grated cheese if liked.

    This was from the pennypincher newsletter as a recipe suggestion for students. I've tried it and it is very filling. Would be great for a caravan or boating holiday meal.

    I can and I will Bogof_babe for one major reason.

    Don't like onions. If they are in anything they have to be really really small and really well cooked as well so I can see them anymore.

    I have visions of my mums shepherd pie (don't ask but we always called cottage pie, shepherds pie in our house. I assume because my dad did not like lamb)with long stringy bits of onion. Use to pick them out as the thought would make me feel sick.

    Did I tell you I am fussy moo. Well I can't be that fussy as I am about 3/4 stone over weight. And I don't eat a lot of rubbish either. Just need to up my exercise me thinks.
