Corned beef in a tin was war rations when fresh beef was not available.  No one really eats it unless the Germans are bombing do they?  Or on Nelson's ship during the battle of Trafalgar. 

Corned beef sandwiches.... sitting on the beach with Mum, Dad & my sister, slight drizzle, cold breeze, after a dip in the refreshing near sub-zero sea:Lovely.   Yes, it really was lovel

you must not be British.

Gramps told me they did that during the blitz and later I did it on long distance sailboat races but never at home.  We always had corned brisket of beef for dinner and made hash the next morning for breakfast.  

I know which hash I prefer for breakfast !     LOL

You must not be British.  My granny's recipe; make a salty curing brine with a little prague powder with pickling spices like mustard seed, allspice berries, coriander seeds, and peppercorns. Then you marinated a beef brisket in the brine, for 5 to 7 days. Once brined, you remove the brisket from the brine and simmer it in water with more pickling spices for several hours until tender.

and when you eat that you'll never make the mistake of calling the canned crap corned beef again..

Foodland two frozen kippers around 500 grams 693 baht. Medium sized Aussie turnip 280 baht. That is 7 bloody quid

In some tesco you can find 2 frozen mackerel ready to grill for 69 baht

 

Its next to the frozen squid and frozen fish heads

I can assure you sir that the two are like Chalk & Cheese, absolutely no comparison, may I suggest you buy a tin, chill in the fridge for a few hours, cut some thick slices apply to buttered bread cover with HP or Daddies Brown sauce add the other buttered slice and eat, I think you will agree that the tinned version is superior in every way to that tatty imitation you have posted 😎

I thought this was a foodie thread????

 

Then someone posts that a tin full of bovine toe nails, testicles and [email protected]@eholes, mixed with a little meat is superior to home made corned beef brisket. 

 

Must have been mistaken.

I have no problem with your comment, a bit like certain fast food outlets so called "Chicken Nuggets" and the ingredients therein, however having been brought up in the UK in the 50's I appreciate things like "OUR" Corned beef compared to yours, the first time I tried your Corned Beef was maybe only 3 years ago, it has absolutely no comparison to our canned bully beef and as I have previously stated they are like chalk and cheese, I prefer mine to yours, it's as simple as that, and not whether one is a heathen for liking something he was brought up on, remember we still had rationing and as a child I played on bomb sites in the middle of London. unlike you guys from USA, Aus & NZ that were shielded from the actual physicality of the war, Yes I know you lost a lot of sons, brothers & fathers as did we and I remember them each and every day almost. Truce.

Not sure what you mean about "ours and yours".

That was mainly directed towards our U.S. and Commonwealth members who don't seem to have had the pleasure of a tin of bully beef, hence the ours & yours comment, most of them have never tried it and fob it off as crap 🙂 At least I have had both so feel qualified to comment. 🙂

But you were quoting me???

 

I too have tried both. I also remember the scandal of the Argentinian corned beef in the 80s.

 

Most processed, canned meat is crap. Let's face it. As are most supermarket bought sausages and burgers, pies and pasties.
