Tater 'ash (as my Nana made it)

This is my all time winter comfort food. Every Saturday my Nana would make a big pan, served with white sliced bread and pickled red cabbage.

Method

1. Peel and chop the potatoes and onion.

2. In a large pan fry the chopped onion in some butter until golden brown.

3. Add the potato and add water enough to cover and bring to boil & simmer.

4. Open corned beef, break up into pieces add to the simmering potato and onions.

5. Add beef stock cube(s) or a liquid cube (I like the Knorr Stock Pots) to taste.

6. Simmer until potatoes are cooked. You can add other vegetables too I sometimes add carrot, suede or parsnip.

7. Serve in a large deep plate with a generous helping of pickled red cabbage & white sliced bread to mop up the gravy.

Ingredients

Beef Stock Cube(s)
Butter For Frying
Water For Boiling
Onions 1-2 Large
Potatoes 4-6 Medium Sized
Corned Beef 1 Can (340g)

Hints 'n' Tips

This recipe isn't an exact science and can easily be adjusted to personal taste.

I find browning the onions to begin with adds a lot of flavour to the dish.

Accompaniment

Baron de Ley Club Privado Reserva Rioja

The Baron de Ley winery was founded by a prestigious group of Rioja professionals in 1985. They were quite unique in their approach as they modelled the winery on a Medoc chateaux, which was a pioneering move at that time for producers in the Denominacion de Origen Calificada Rioja. This wine is aged in new oak casks for 20 months prior to resting in the bottle for 2 years before release. It has definite claret qualities; the nose is layered with ripe cherry, toasty oak and a touch of cigar box. Lively, ripe, red fruit with dried tobacco and nutty vanilla overtones, round tannins with an expressive woody finish. Rioja wine can be excellent value for money and has terrific cellaring potential. Buy this wine if you like: Well rounded reds, with soft fruit and toasty character, easy drinking for upfront pleasure.
