    As above, is it healthy? Or bad for you?

    I'm thinking of something to eat and got a tin of corned beef and I'd likely make something where by I'd eat the whole tin in one meal.

    Was thinking of grilling it, then shopping it up adding some sort of sauce like pasta sauce to it and having rice and vegetables with it.

    Thanks
    Will.

    Everything is bad for you, just depends on the quantity.

    It’s got reduced salt so it has some benefit. It might be bad for you if you stuff yourself with it but that can be said of almost anything you eat that way.

    Just remember that you need salt.

    The pants or the custard? :D




    I would say in moderation OP it is 'ok'. Ideally meat wants to be organic but you can't have everything. :)

    Ok in moderation but it still contains a lot of fat and additives much like pretty much anything tinned.

    not quite in keeping with the thread, however I found a can of corned beef hash in the supermarket the other day and thought I'd give it a punt.

    Whatever you do, don't make the mistake I did. Twas awful!

    It starts with the word "reduced", nothing starting with the word reduced is worth eating.

    Yeah without sharing, the *******

    Corned beef is cured in salt, not sure how it can still be called corned beef if they don't do that.

    You realise they hang up the carcass and spray it with water to get the last bits off?

    Everything that doesn't look like beef, is that crap.
