CANNED FOOD | Taste Tests & Chef Hacks

DIY 和生活百科

#WithMe - In the last month, we’ve seen tinned foods disappear from our shelves like it’s canned gold. But, our question is, shouldn’t we appreciate tinned foods more all year round? In this episode, our Chef, Ben, whips up a few tinned treats for our normals, Jamie and Mike to see if they’re prepared to give the canned cuisine the attention it deserves.

    I currently live up north, just south of New Castle. Up here people eat more corned beef than anything els. Greggs sells corned beef pasties and sausage rolls nothing els. Mike is effeminate sissy, he clearly lacked a father growing up thats its problem. Become a man Mike eat more tinned meat and while your at it grow some balls.

    You need to slice the spam thin, season it with cayanne, black pepper & all season spice (like Adobe) then fry it in a pan, take 2 pieces of bread put mayonnaise, a piece of cheese,lettuce & tomato then 2 pieces of crispy spam on there. And that's how u make a southern spam sandwich.

    I'm from Germany and in my family we only use corned beef(?) only for Lapskaus (potatoes, red beet, pickled fish, pickled cucumbers. All grounded and heated up with an extra pickled fish, cucumber and an egg) and for a korean army stew. (With baked beans, cheese, ramen noodles, kimchi, mushrooms and a lot other stuff)

    Why does the canned elk have a picture of a moose on it? Get your ungulates right, guys. As someone on a pretty tight income, I use canned foods all the time. Various casseroles, corned beef hash, deviled meats for ploughman's lunches, and especially fish. Can't go wrong with tuna salad, but I'll often just eat it straight out of the can if I want a snack with zero effort put on. Aside from fighting off my cat, of course.

    The corned beef hash looked awesome...but let's have it was 1992, three single guys in Gray's Essex, worked all day, partied all night, every night. The Essex boys hash was a saucepan you add your diced corned beef, a tin of beans and a tin of spaghetti in sauce, salt and pepper, then serve on toast with brown sauce. Guaranteed to give you a full belly, lot's of energy, protein AND fiber, and above all heartburn for 24 hrs...that's how we rolled!
