I’m tagging this post with “Beef” because corned beef here tends to look like proper beef and not just a can of mashed meat.
So I’ve been wanting to try Highlands Corned Beef for the past few months and only got my chance to do so tonight. It boasts of being made with Angus beef and of having some meaty males backing the brand although right now, I’ll say that it’s certainly not even remotely close to being steak-like. Still, the lure of Angus beef was enough to get me interested.
I was pretty surprised when I popped open the can; the contents were drenched in what I assume to be beef broth. On one hand, it’s good that the corned beef isn’t dry. On the other hand, there seems to be quite a dollop of grease in there. Into the pan the corned beef went, along with onions, a sprinkling of pepper, and a dash of garlic salt.
I must give Highland Corned Beef props for looking like finely shredded beef, leaving people in no doubt that it’s made of proper meat and not dubious surplus meat. Even if I left it on the pan a little too long, it still turned out extremely tender, and you won’t hear me complaining about the taste. In a nutshell, it’s tasty, albeit not life-changing. I like it enough that I may turn to this brand the next time I get a rare craving for corned beef. I’d be interested to check the veracity of their Angus beef claim, though.
