Ahh my intrepid readers

Good Sunday to you all.  (or Monday depending if you're on the other side of the Date Line. )

I'm slacking.  Yeah.  I should be cleaning my house but I'm putting up another blog recipe/entry while having my morning coffee.


Here's a cheap and easy dish that's a staple around here:

Corned Beef Gravy.

Peel and cut and boil a few potatoes.

Then, get a can of corned beef (I use Hereford brand but whatever floats your boat) open it and dump it into a frying pan.  Turn on the element to around Med-High heat and start mashing it down with a fork while the potatoes are boiling.  while this is going on, mix up roughly 1/2 cup flour to 2 cups of water really well...like no lumps or anything.

When the potatoes are done, drain some of the water into the frying pan with the corned beef...add some seasonings if you want, garlic/onion powders, steak spice, pepper (no real need for salt.)

Now,  give your flour/water mixture a stir, and slowly pour in to the hot beef/water mixture while stirring constantly,  it should thicken up pretty well.

Serve over the hot potatoes (smash em on your plate a bit and put butter on them first if you want)  and with some bread and butter.

The gravy freezes/refrigerates  well so all you need to do is put it in individual containers.  So there you go a $2 can of corned beef can feed you for a bit.
