Having tackled some of the sprout overload on Wednesday night, we looked at the 1.5 cabbages in the fridge yesterday and thought “we really should eat some of that”.
So – cut up a couple of biggish spuds into smallish chunks, and put them in the bottom half of the steamer to boil. Shredded not very much of a cabbage – it goes a long way, does cabbage, and put it on to steam for the last six minutes of the potato boiling.
Chopped an onion, and set it to fry in some oil – unaccountably, we have run out of dripping, both in the dripping bowl, and in a packet. Shockingly poor housekeeping there.
Diced the contents of a small can of corned beef, and added it to the cooking onion. Stirred these around until both onion and corned beef were soft.
Drained the veg, and added the potato – mashed it gently down into the pan with a masher so everything started to meld together, then added the cabbage and stirred everything round. Started patting the mixture down so it would brown, which it did quite helpfully.
I ate mine with lashings of HP Sauce. Pete had Lea and Perrins, but he’s peculiar.
Haven’t had this for ages, and had forgotten what nice comfort food it is.
