So how did my corned beef congee taste?

It tasted great. I have a couple of containers left for leftovers during the week. The containers are now in my freezer solidifying.

  1. Looks delicious, Gary. It looks like it came out just right, and a little bit saucy too 😀 Enjoy the leftovers in the coming week. It’s been a while since I had corned beef. But first, I have to get through this can of Spam I have in the cupboard…I’ll admit that I bought it because recently I saw your hot and spicy Spam photos 😀

    1. This is really a tinned meat weekend Mabel. The congee was delicious. You could have a spam and corned beef version 😃

    2. Spam and corned beef sound like a great combination. Will keep that in mind 🙂 I ended up cooking spam mixed with brocolli and chicken pasta for my dinner on Sunday. Cooked a bit too much but it will last the whole week 😀

  2. Spam … I got nostalgic a few years ago and bought a can.

    Never again cause BOY! it was salty, though the few things I made with it (Spam musubi and Spam loco moco) weren’t bad, I tossed half the can. I’m sure I could have done more interesting things with it but I kind of forgot the slices in the freezer and then had a clear-out.

    1. Excellent, thanks for the link. When I holidayed in Oahu last year I enjoyed spam musabi and many other taste treats 😃

    1. Thanks Lorraine. Congee and jook sound so much better than rice gruel! I like to mix it up a bit. At some stage this winter I’ll do an old fashioned one like my Mum’s.
