Corned Beef Stew

Published by themum

A very cheap way of using veg up and extremely tasty



  • To serve at least 4
  • one tin of corned beef
  • one - two onions
  • potatoes chopped into cubes about (4 medium ones)
  • 3 or 4 carrots
  • swede
  • leeks
  • frozen peas
  • basically any veg you have lying around.
  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • gravy mix
  • brown sauce


Chop onions and stir round in a large pan for a minute or so. Add all veg and water. Add two stock cubes. Cook for 10 mins then add a tin of corned beef cubes. Mix round. Cook until potatoes are ready. Add gravy mix (use the granules)until its as thick as you want it. Add a good squirt of brown sauce. Eat as it is or with some nice crusty bread, over yorkshire puddings, or with dumplings.

i added dumplings to the stew in the photo.

    I'm glad to find this. An old friend from England made this for us and said it was a fast easy comfort food over there. I'm going to pair it with Yorkshire pudding

    Bethan, make the stock up with the stock cubes and the appropriate amount of water. There will be instructions on the stock cubes. It's not an exact science but make sure the veg are pretty much covered or nearly covered.

    one lesson learned: don't put the tin corned beef in too early. it will burn and the whole stew will have a strong burnt taste to it.

    At first, I didn't think much of it: "Oh just some stew", but after eating a whole bowl, I decided to eat FOUR more!

  • KAIWEN 6 years ago

    My mum had 6 mouths to feed. In the 50 tees up until the mid 60 tees money was always tight, in the 50 tees some things were still on ration. From autumn until the end of winter my dad would buy a sack each of potatoes carrots and onions to complete the stew very large pan two oxo cubes salt and pepper lots of water and corned beef. If it's cooked on the hob it only takes 1/2 an hour a lot of homes didn't have ovens back then i still make it today but for pleasure not a necessity.

    I only had corned beef, onions, gravy mix and a bag of mixed veg but it still tasted alright.

  • Luke 7 years ago

    This was the bomb. I put it all in a slow cooker, with cubes of uncooked corned beef for about 6 hours, and then added the brown sauce and gravy. Totes yum

    I don't know how many calories but it is very filling. I would look at the tin of corned beef and work out how many in the tin. Then add calories for potatoes and gravy mix. I wouldn't worry about the veg because veg are extremely low in calories. Divide the whole lot up into 6 or so portions and you will have the calories for a serving. That serving can be huge if you put more of the low calorie veg in. Enjoy!
