This is a family favourite in my family and if I ask "What do you fancy for tea tonight?" at least one person will request this one!

You Need
tin of corned Beef (the value variety works better than the dearer stuff)
Potatoes - depending on how many you are feeding
Beef stock cube
Gravy granules
frozen peas

To Make
Peel potatoes and chop into chunky but not to large pieces.
Peel carrots and chop into bite size pieces.
Add to a large pan with frozen peas, cover with water add the stock cube.
Chop the corned beef into small pieces and add 1/2 to the pan.
Simmer until potatoes are cooked to your liking - we like them to be quite mushy!
Add gravy granules until the gravy is as thick as you like it and add the rest of the corned beef.
Heat through and serve.

In our house we have this with pickled beetroot and bread - lots and lots of bread! (great for mopping up the gravy!)

If theres any left which is unusual in our house I often add more potatoes and stick a pasty crust on top to make a pie for the following days tea. This is also a great meal to cook earlier in the day and reheat when your ready to eat (but be careful it does not stick - reheat slowly!)

When she found herself with a shopping budget of
just GBP10 a week to feed herself and her young
son, she addressed the situation with immense
resourcefulness, creativity and by embracing her
local supermarket's 'basics' range. She created
recipe after recipe of delicious, simple and
upbeat meals that were outrageously cheap. Learn
with Jack Monroe's A Girl Called Jack how to save
money on your weekly shop whilst being less
wasteful and creating inexpensive, tasty food.

in her situation, she then began to publish them
