26 Easy Meals to Cook With Corned Beef (Especially Meals You Can Freeze!)

My husband and I raise our own cattle for beef. We get lots and lots of cuts of meat that keep us going for many months. We’re at the end of our meat supply now, and all I have left are T-bones and giant hunks of corned beef.

I like to cook meals for my husband to take to work. He’s away for 7 days and although food is supplied, it’s often boring, overcooked, and just not very tasty. Now that I only have corned beef left over though, I wondered what meals I can cook with it that are a bit “outside the box”.


This list of meals to cook with corned beef might come in handy for you too, as well as serve as a reference for the future. I’m going to try and get more mince in the future, but for now, I have at least 50 lbs of corned beef to use up!
