Corned Beef Bolognaise

Corned beef is not something that I buy, because I can't stand the stuff. The husband has different views though and often reminisces about the good old days when he enjoyed corned beef & salad cream sandwiches - I still don't buy it though. Can you imagine his joy when I was asked if I would like to receive some to use in creating a recipe or 2. When the cans arrived he immediately popped one in the fridge ready for his sandwiches. 

I decided to use a couple of cans and see how they faired up in a bolognaise. The cans don't have keys on them like I remember and instead now have a ring pull, making them very easy to open. The corned beef is still the same as I remember though and not something that I'll be eating in my sandwiches anytime soon.

Corned Beef Bolognaise

olive oil
chopped onion
sliced mushrooms
sliced peppers
2 garlic cloves
2 cans of Corned Beef, roughly chopped
1 can of chopped tomatoes
mixed herbs
1 tsp Paprika
142g of tomato puree

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan and fry the onions, mushrooms, peppers & garlic until softened (I used frozen but you can use fresh too)
  • Add the corned beef & mash down
  • Add the tomatoes, herbs, paprika & tomato puree and stir well
  • Place the lid on and simmer until the sauce turns rich and thick
  • Serve with pasta and grated cheese on the top

This went down very well with everyone, and whilst I didn't dislike it, it's not something I'll be eating on a regular basis, mainly due to the high fat content - but I wouldn't rule it out if we were snowed in and had no access to fresh food!

I was sent 6 cans of Princes corned beef for the purpose of using in recipes
