My favourite sandwich when I was a child was corned beef with tomato sauce, what can I say? I have simple tastes! This recipe comes from a book, published in 1980, was donated by my Auntie and is full of some great food ideas, Eighties and otherwise. As yesterday, we ate more than the portions state but it was so bloomin’ good!
Pop the oven on at 190ºc (fan). Did they have fan ovens in the Eighties?
Cook some chopped onion in oil and butter until softened. Add finely chopped carrot and soften too.
Cook some frozen peas.
Pop a couple of tins of corned beef in a bowl and add the onion, carrot and peas. Add seasoning and a couple of dashes of tabasco, along with an egg. Mix well.
Pop in a pie dish and cover with ready made shortcrust pastry. Crimp around the edges and brush with egg.
Put a couple of holes in the top of the pie. Pop in the oven, cook for about 25 minutes, reduce the oven to 170ºc (fan) and cook for another 20 minutes.
Serve with a dollop of tomato sauce, what else?
Using CORNED BEEF, ONION, TABASCO, EGG, CARROTS, FROZEN PEAS, SHORTCRUST PASTRY and TOMATO SAUCE (KETCHUP)…
