What to do with all of that corned beef....

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

Okay, so I was pressed for time tonight and hubby is away on business and the kids were at my mercy...eat it or starve...Turned out to be a kid's favorite!

1 can corned beef 1 can cream of potato soup 1 can evaporated milk

Cook until bubbly and serve over rice...Nothing could be simpler...kinda like chipped beef on toast, but tastier...

It is a kiddy favorite! Parents may prefer something else, though I liked it alot too.

Here's another corned beef recipe. We've been working on pure storage food dishes and this one worked well for us.

2 cups raw rice (any type will do, we use converted) 4.5 cups water 1/4 cup dried onion 1/4 cup dried carrots 1/2 cup dried greens (broccoli or spinach works well) 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (less for you midwesterners) 1 can of corned beef

Combine rice, water, dried vegetables and garlic powder, bring to a boil and cook as you would for normal rice. Just before you're ready to turn off the heat and put on the lid of the rice pot, open the corned beef and shake the meat out on top of the rice wihout breaking it up or stirring it in. Put on the lid and allow rice to finish cooking. Just before being ready to serve break up the corned beef and mix thoroughly into the fully cooked rice.

If using fresh vegetables decrease water slightly. I've been adding a shake of turmeric powder to the cooking water give the rice a nice yellow color to contrast the red of the meat, the orange of the carrots and the greens. You can also add a bit of ground red pepper if you like.

One package Lipton Butter Noodles, plus one 12 oz can Corned Beef. Serves one hungry man.

thankyouthankyouthankyou! I didn't have many recipes for canned meats and these help a lot. I have grilled or steamed corned beef and spam for sandwiches or casseroles but these are quick and easy too ;-)

My family has always eaten can corned beef with eggs. Heat the corn beef in a skillet. Make little wells in the corn beef and crack open an egg in each well. Add about a tablespoon of water and cover. Steam until the eggs are set. My daughter's favorite.
