back to basics... corned beef and rice

what self respecting bacchy food blog would be complete without a corned beef and rice? yeah, i know... it's just corned beef and rice. but yuh know what? ah have to represent. since the days of duckin school all the way to now, corned beef and rice hits the spot everytime.

it always freaked me out to see the corned beef in slices on the tin though. never had it that way. i always take it out the tin and mash it up like this.

that way i could add my lime... yuh know ah love it.

and i could add a little touch of green seasoning like so. then i could mix that up while i...

put some oil in a pot to get heated.

the next step is to put some onions, pimentos and garlic.

in goes the corned beef. let that cook for a bit.

then cabbage.

some ketchup, some A1 sauce and some water.

some paprika...

some black pepper...

fire fuh dat!

and daz it dey. on some jasmine rice, yuh on. the only thing easier, quicker and more affordable than that is a make it happen loan.

leh we bubble.
