Usually there isn't any grinning smiley

If you have leftover corned beef what do you do with it after having had it cold for dinner the next night and the next!!

I've seen recipes for corned beef hash but have never tried it.

Could you freeze the cooked corned beef?

Amazed that you actually have any left over!

Love corned beef hash - make it by boiling or steaming potatoes, mashing them, or dicing them, adding finely chopped raw onion, and the broken up meat. And lots of chopped parsley. Salt and pepper but be careful of salt if corned beef is a bit salty. You can add garlic or chilli or whatever at this stage.

If mixture too stiff, add an egg.

Flour hands and mould into patties, or cook in frying pan with a little cooking oil until brown on both sides.

So simple and so yummy and so cheap.

Try a bit to see if you like it.

I always wonder what to do with that quarter or so that is left over after a couple of meals. Now I slice it up and make up little meal parcels and freeze it. Most successful and great for those times that you have forgotten to take something out for dinner as you rush out the door for work and drag yourself in tired at night.

Dear Morven, We make some white sauce with parcley out of a packet and warm it up again in our small oven - sometimes we also put a little cheese and slices of tomato on top if available. Very tasty. It does make scrumptious rissoles too, but a bit much if you just want a quick tea. I know what you mean though, if it is a large chunk of meat and you have already had two meals with it, you do need a change!

With my left over corn beef I fry up the left over potatoes (or cook somemore if needed) & Vegies with onion. Add the left over corned beef that has been diced up salt and pepper may be a spalsh of worcestershire sauce or mustard (anything you might like). I sometimes just have it like that or add a couple of beaten eggs to it (alittle like a frittarta) and cook unit the eggas are cooked. It is lovely & also easy

Julie Le Clerc has a recipe in one of her books for Corned Beef and Kumara Cottage Pie.

Fry an onion, add a can of crushed tomatoes, lots of parsley and ground pepper. Whizz corned beef in food processor and add to tomato mixture and thicken with a couple of tbsp of flour. Put into an oven proof dish and top with mashed kumara (lots of butter and cream/milk).

The salty corned beef and creamy kumara go really well together and it is definitely worth trying.

Fry an onion in a little butter and add frozen peas. Place sliced corned beef on topand dot with a little more butter and salt and pepper. Simmer for about ten minutes till the beef is heated through. Serve with mashed potatoes. Yum

Used to do this often when the kids were younger. Always a favourite and different from the usual hot or cold. Shepherds pie with corned beef is very tasty as well

Minced and mixed with tomato sauce makes a lovely sandwich spread.

We don't very often have any leftovers though

And the answer to your question Morven - yes you can freeze cooked corned beef. It's moist and doesn't lose any of its taste. I also freeze a couple of cups of the cooking liquid, then slice the silverside into it before I reheat it in the miccrowave. Makes nice hot sandwiches as well.
