Corned Beef & Rice

Published Tuesday, 29 June, 2010 by Ashley

Super quick, super easy, super yummy!



  • Tin of corned beef (One tin will feed two people)
  • All purpose
  • Thyme or Rosemary
  • Rice
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Red pepper
  • 1 Onion


First put the rice in a pan. A cup full for each person you're cooking for.

If you put in a cup full of rice put in two cup fulls of water. Sprinkle in the salt and pepper and put in a dollop of butter. Put on a medium heat to boil.

Chop up the onion and pepper into small slices.

Whilst the rice is boiling put a splash of olive oil in a pan and fry the onion and pepper. Once that's browned add the corned beef. You may have to chop it up before you add it to the pan as it comes out in a huge block. Simmer it on a low heat so it doesn't burn but so it breaks up. Stir it with the pepper and onion.

Sprinkle the herbs and all purpose on the corned beef and stir. Don't add to much all purpose as the corned beef is salty as it is.

Let the corned beef simmer on a very low heat. Once the rice is ready you can share it out with the corned beef.

There you are, a meal under 15 minutes. A ledge meat to take to work to have for lunch as it's also delicious cold! :)

    I have been making corned beef and rice for many years and I always add a lot of tomato puree to the corned beef which is cooked along with the onion. Add cayenne pepper as well for a bit of fiery heat.

    was alright, my room mate also liked it but.. euhmm... adding celeri in my opinion would be nice and using spam to cook this kind of diner is... weird.. corned beef is cool and it works but i sugest not using a canned variety, look in the lunch meet section for some in plastic package.
