Am I the only one who thinks that corn beef is just one of those delicacies that can never be saved, it does not matter how much you try to make it taste nice, it is just awful? Followed by the pointlessness that is tomatoes(boring and acidic) and oranges(hate how it explodes in the mouth and untidy to eat)?

The only time I make corn beef (once a year maybe) is frying onions and adding corn beef, then adding tinned tomatoes and sweetcorn. Loads of salt and pepper and serving with white rice.
Dp will not eat corner beef or mince.

I was going to say a relationship after cheating!! Haha. Totally missed the point

Totally agree about corned beef. I don't think pasta tastes any where near as good the next day.

Oh hell. I love a corned beef and tomato sandwich. Does that make me the Devil?

Corned beef is grim. Its too dry and has a weird texture.

Corned beef mixed in with mashed potato - mmm!

Corned beef & picallilli sandwiches with a packet of salt and vinegar square crisps! Heaven!

Corned beef, salad cream, lettuce and onions in a sandwich. Or with potatoes fried with a fried egg.

I love the stuff.

Corned beg and Branston pickle is a child hood memory. Yum yum!

You are wrong about tomatoes and oranges, sorry.

I am convinced my tastes are better halo

White under wear under white outer wear can never be made to look angelic classy- I did this mistake earlier this week - I sort of knew it looked revealing for work but I thought I could get away with it - not!

Thank you Guinness for giving me a great idea for my lunch! Off to the shops now, corned beef, tin potatoes, sweetcorn, check!!! Might share some with the dog.

I don't eat meat now, but when I was younger, I used to love mixing corned beef with buttered mashed potato and tinned sweetcorn, with a bit of brown sauce stirred in. It was rather yummy, but admittedly, not very sophisticated. grin

YABU Yum to corned beef. Most tomatoes are tasteless but if you get proper sweet scent full home grown ones they are a delight. I like soaking tomato slices in balsamic vinegar with a spoon of sugar. Absolutely yummy as heck.

I don't see the point of rice myself. Pointless bland filler. Ditto those gnocchi pasta ball things. Also non-streaky bacon. It is just salty cardboard. Also controversially, chocolate. Waxy oversweet cloying yukkiness. grin

LeMontane I am with you on tomatoes. It's taken me fifty six years to decide, but I really don't like them.

Also rice, pasta, potatoes and bread. Boring boring boring, only edible if slathered in butter and/or cream.

I don't think anything realy tastes nice served up twice. Can just about take roast beef cold the following day, everything else is just...flat, somehow.

No you are RIGHT about tomatoes and oranges. When I stopped eating and drinking them my eczema got better almost immediately.

So did my aching joints !!!!

Corned beef Yuch Yuch Yuch it looks like dog food and the smell shock OMG

Corned beef with tomato, lettuce and squeezey mustard in a sandwich is delicious. Yabu sorry!

QuimReaper Thu 16-Mar-17 12:17:00

Oranges are AWFUL, I have never understood people who eat them! I'm traumatised by having them forced on me as a child, I always seemed to end up covered in cold sticky juice and chomping through six inches of pith, what on earth is the appeal?

Corned beef is grim. Its too dry and has a weird texture If your corned beef is dry you are buying the wrong stuff! Corned beef with pickle on fresh thick sliced white bread is a thing of beauty.

I with you about tomatoes, I can eat them cooked in a pasta sauce or similar but I can't eat a cold tomato hate the taste, hate the texture

You forgot mangoes and pomegranates. Any food where you end up with more on your arms and the rug than in your mouth is pointless.

Corned beef is lovely, I can eat it straight from the can.

Also fantastic in stovies.

Corned beef heated up with about a zillion steamed sliced runner beans from my grandfather's garden ... camping food....

Stormtreader Thu 16-Mar-17 12:20:49

Corned beef sandwiches with chicken soup is a classic, dont know why it works but it does!

Nannplum666 Thu 16-Mar-17 12:21:05
