    Corned Beef, good or bad?

    Shop Now
    Hi, most CW sites tout corned beef as bad for health due to high amounts of cholesterol, fat and salt. But how does that fare with us PB'ers? We brits eat tons of it year round. I particularly like it as hash with eggs. But is too much a bad thing?
    Would be grateful for your wisdom!

    Thanks

    I treat it like most processed meats - I see what is in it and eat it sparingly. Check the label (if canned) or ingredients (if from a deli) to see if anything is added and how much processing is done. Then go from there - the more junk added the more you should avoid it. I tend to eat processed meats sparingly due to the amount of sodium in them. I add enough salt to my own cooking that I do not need more from processed foods.

    Can't be that bad, it's just meat and salt. I bet you'd get more salt by eating a seafood type diet anyway, which definitely isn't frowned upon as far as I'm aware.

    My local grocery store makes their own corned beef and basically use the same pickling spices I would. Now I don't eat any other kind of corned beef. It is easy to slice it after it is cooked and chilled so you can use it as a lunch meat or in hashes. Many butcher shops make it during March but some have it year round. Like anything premade, check the ingredients and decide accordingly.

    Check the labels and everything in moderation i guess ( except bacon) Love the look of that home made recipe though. Might give that a go.
    Thanks for the advice!

    Me and the kids love it, although the wife isn't that fussed.

    Pop it in the slow cooker overnight and have it for breakfast as a replacement for bacon....

    It's pretty easy to make it so you can control the ingredients. Chop it up with some potato for hash, and put a couple of fried eggs on top. Delish.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
