... or, as my Mum always said, 'Panhaggerty'. Recipes differ around the North East of England, more than I realised until recently.
I did publish my Mum's 'posher' version of this recipe, goodness knows how many years ago on my blog and this is the LINK ...... if you have leftover roast beef and some rashers of bacon, in place of corned beef.
However. and this makes sense in these times, I think I've come across the original 'Paneklty' version - which uses corned beef rather then left over roast beef and some bacon rashers. Could easily make a meal for four with extra veggies.
I've also experimented with this recipe. twice using the slow cooker and it works wonderfully well. Right now, in times where we're all watching our pennies - this is THE most scrummy casserole. Probably best served up with some dark green cabbage or kale - and possibly a dollop of horseradish sauce:
1 340g can of corned beef - I use low salt - sliced (I do find that slicing the whole block in two from top to bottom once it's out of the can, then cutting smaller slices is easier - even easier it it's chilled straight from the fridge
2 large onions, halved and thinly sliced
4 large potatoes (baked potato size) - peeled and thinly sliced
200 ml hot gravy made using the water, two beef Oxo cubes and a tablespoonful of Worcestershire sauce or similar (eg Henderson's)
Heat the slow cooker to high - mine is 3.5 litres - good for a family of two and even up to four - but you must check as appetites do vary
Then do all the slicing as detailed above
Add half the sliced onion into the slow cooker and then top with half of the corned beef slices and then a layer of half the thin potato slices
Do the same again with the next layer - and you obviously will end up with a layer of potato slices. Nice if they're overlapped a little too
Add the hot Oxo with the Worcestershire sauce mixed in - just pour it over your beautifully layered supper
Pop the slow cooker lid down and walk away leaving it on high for around three and a half hours. Usually that's long enough and a skewer 'poke' will tell you if the potatoes and onions are cooked. Thereafter - I turn it to 'slow' or even 'keep warm' depending on your slow cooker model and then decide what nice green veggies to have with it. Enjoy ......... and also use a slotted spoon to aid in serving!
