Nosh-talgia: 11 Canned Corn Beef Recipes That’ll Make You Miss The Seventies

Corned beef is back, baby. Check out these 11 canned corned beef recipes for a hot meal—easy and fast.

And back with a bang. 

Ready your can opener: these canned corned beef recipes aren’t just a blast from the past — they’re tomorrow’s lunch. 

There’s no arguing that corned beef is decidedly unfashionable— it’s meat out of a tin — but it’s that very utilitarianism that ought to be admired. 

Those portly red cans tell of a time when imperishability was of the essence and the simple tastes of one’s childhood consisted of whatever the war effort could spare — namely, high fructose corn syrup, dinky little victory-garden-beans and yes, tinned meat. 

Loads of the stuff. 

Let’s suppose for some unfathomable reason, you don’t find austerity alone to be appetizing enough, rest assured that corned beef is one of life’s simplest pleasures. 

It also happens to be of great value — that ought to work in its favor, not against it. 

Without further ado, here’s 11 of our favorite canned corn beef recipes. 

From a radish and beef hash to a corned beef stew and even corned beef burritos: there’s a wealth of possibilities inside that tin.

1. Keto Corned Beef

Nothing comforts like an overfull plate of meltingly tender, bracingly salty corned beef. 

Potatoes are usually a must — but peppery radish cuts quite nicely through the richness in this more-than-decent hash.

2. Corned Beef Hash Quiche

First things first: it ought to be unlawful to attempt to make corned beef remotely fancy — if you can’t love it for what it is, you oughtn’t despoil it with Thousand Island dressing or (shudder) stuff it in chicken.

But this cheesy, low-effort quiche gets a pass; if only because it’s so damn good.

3. Corned Beef And Hash Patties

Every summer, we declare we’ve found our new favourite homemade burger. 

Then, without fail, another one comes along to dethrone last year’s popular dish. 

But something tells us this is one easy recipe that’s here to stay. 

At least for the next little while. 

4. Deluxe Sloppy Joes

What’s a girl gotta do to get immortalized as a sandwich around here? 

Well, to hear Joe tell it — you’ve got to be sloppy

Real sloppy. 

Take a few pointers from this deliciously messy, crowd-pleaser of a burger; it’s certainly taught us a thing or two. 

5. Corned Beef Open Sandwiches

Salivate your way through these drippy, moreish sandwiches. 

Serve this canned corned beef recipe with a side of pickled slaw and French fries.

6. Corned Beef Stew

On those bleakest of bleak days, enjoy the simple comforts of this warming stew. 

If you’re expecting a lot of people, this recipe will double or triple wonderfully.

7. Corned Beef And Cabbage

The light, crisp texture of cabbage makes this dish fresh and airy, in spite of the hearty, generously-fatty beef. 

Stir this into some slippery fried noodles with a slug of oyster sauce for a simple, muss-free quick meal.

8. Corned Beef Cottage Pie

When executed correctly, a rich, savory pie is uniquely capable of being one of the most delicious things on the planet. 

Case in point: this stupendously buttery specimen.

9. Corned Beef Rice Burritos

Your burrito ought to inspire groans of pleasure and perhaps a satisfied belly-rub or two — this’ll do just that — and it has the added advantage of coming together in under half an hour.

Recipes with canned corned beef don’t get a whole better.

10. Beef Spaghetti

Wondering what to make with a can of corned beef?

Seductively saucy and brimming with big, meaty flavors  this simple, filling bowl of pasta is the culmination of all our hopes and dreams for comfort food.

11. Canned Corned Beef Sandwich

Even a sub-standard sandwich will go down smooth enough provided you’ve got enough ketchup/horseradish/mustard on hand to help it on its way. 

So it stands to reason that an excellent sandwich would be one of the finest things ever to grace your plate . . . 

Next time you ask yourself how to cook canned corn beef again, you’ll have your answer.
