Corned Beef Oats

I’ve written before about using corned beef cooking broth in oatmeal. This time I used the packaging fluid from a pre-cooked corned beef from the super. Cutting one end of the plastic and draining it into a bowl gave about a cup of liquid. I tried it two ways — once with beef broth and once with vegetable broth. Since cornedbeefandcabbage is all one word around this house, I also added a third of a cup of shredded cabbage about three minutes before the end.

Setup: 1/3 cup of stone ground rolled oats, two dinner teaspoons of potato flakes, 3/4 cup of broth, 1/4 cup corned beef liquid, no salt.  Cook for 7 minutes or so, depending on the exact style of oats. Add 1/3 cup shredded cabbage. Cook for 3min more.  Add the potato when you take it off the stove..

Results: Not bad. Not exciting. Good enough that I’ll do it again the next time we get a corned beef, but not good enough that I”m going to run out an buy one for the packing liquid. Cabbage gave it a nice crunch.
