corned beef recipe
Corned beef makes the perfect dinnertime meal or a simple sandwich filler.

This recipe for corned beef or pickled pork was submitted by local resident Chris Forgan, who said the tasty meat made a great meal or was delicious on sandwiches!


  • Either pickled pork or corned beef roast (from your local supermarket)
  • 1 whole onion
  • 1 diced onion
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mild mustard (or wholegrain)
  • 3 tablespoons minced or crushed garlic
  • potatoes
  • 1 packet of béchamel sauce
  • vegetables to serve


  • Remove meat from bag, rinse off the excess brine and place in a suitable pot.
  • Add 1 cup of white vinegar, a good tablespoon of mild mustard (whole grain mustard is nice too), 3 good teaspoons minced or crushed garlic, a whole onion peeled (I like onion so I add 2)
  • Top with water until meat is covered and bring to a simmer (follow the time guide on the bag)
  • When meat is 30 minutes off being done, add half dozen washed potatoes to cook with the meat.
  • When finished cooking remove meat, spuds and onion.
  • Dice onion
  • Cook packet béchamel (white sauce) and stir in the onion
  • Serve thick slices of meat with sliced potato and sauce.
