Best canned corned beef

I like to use the chunky variety and have had great results with Martin Purefoods, Palm, Ox & Palm, and Argentina brands. I’ve heard Delimondo is pretty good, too, but I’ve never personally tried it.

Like other canned meat such as Spam or tuna, canned corned beef is ready to eat straight from the can. Cooking it, however, elevates the flavor.

It takes but a few minutes and one pan to turn the rather unappetizing mound of shredded beef into a delicious, stick to your ribs corned beef guisado. Plus, you can double or triple the recipe and revamp leftovers into a brand new dish such as frittata or pizza for the next day’s dinner. Check out other tasty ideas below.

  • Cooking Tips

    • For extra nutrition and color, you can add chopped cabbage or frozen sweet peas during the last 2 to 3 minutes and cook until heated through.
    • I prefer my guisado on the dry side. If you like it a bit soupier, increase the water to 1 cup.
