Following the load of spam being deleted on these forums, lately, I decided to Google 'corned beef' (just to be awkward) and found this interesting 1966 extract from 'Lost Cowboys: From Patagonia to the Alamo'. An interesting read; click here

Well, I found it very interesting but then I have to say I have always preferred fact to fiction.

Even 'recent' history is fascinating. To be able to come across something like this on the internet, just on a whim, is also amazing. Even ten years ago it wouldn't have been as easy.

I enjoyed reading that, it was kinda fascinating.
Thanks rdave13

Maybe Brumas will present us with a postcard of the place one Fri night ;-)

Although Fran's tastes are quite eclectic I don't think they encompass this, so the chance of finding a postcard in her vast collection would be as remote as Bingalau winning a beauty contest ;o]]

Corned beef or 'dog' as it's often called, is one of those once in a while simple meals that I suddenly have a craving for as a taste from the past.

Corned dog, chips & beans yummy... Best served chilled from the fridge and cut into 3/8" thick chunky slices:)

I remember during the Falkland war the only corned beef I could get was tinned Botswana cattle meat - it was delicious!

Was that political sourcing?

Brumas. I haven't missed that derogatory remark, so another black mark goes against your name in my little book, I forget what colour the book is. But it matters not, your name is well and truly ticked.
Why have you got a double chin in your post above, by the way?

If you like Corned Beef, this is how my favourite restaurant make their own...
