Corned beef or Bully beef


Or as we used to call it ( before we could pronounce it properly ) Pantacky, some people called it stove pie

My wise old Granny used to make it in the original cauldron, I promised you a nice surprise for tonight 👌

All the veggies chopped and corned beef sliced

How to make
  1. Layer some chopped onions, slices of corned beef and sliced potatoes in an ovenproof dish, (I use a smallish cast iron casserole with a lid) finishing with a top layer of potatoes, seasoning with salt and pepper between each layer. I like to use white pepper simply because that's what Granny used.  Pour over 1/2pint stock I found an oxo and cover with a lid or foil.
Here it is all layered up

  1. Cook in the pre-heated oven, (Gas mark 5/190C/380F) for an hour, removing the lid/foil for the last quarter of an hour, continue baking until the potatoes are browned and crunchy. serve with your favourite veg, we had carrots and savoy cabbage
  2. The Corned beef only cost €1.78 from Aldi

It was so nice we ate it all
