A little while ago I was set a challenge by Princes. They offered to send me some of their new Corned Beef flavours to create a family meal which would take less than 20 minutes to make and cost less than £5. I love a good cooking challenge so I put my thinking cap on and got to work.
The recipe I created is fairly simple and easy to make but pretty tasty too.
Chilli Corned Beef and Mixed Veg Fritters
You will need:
1 tin of Corned Beef with Chilli – broken into small pieces
150g of SR flour
175ml of semi skimmed milk
1 medium egg
1 cup or 200g of frozen mixed vegetable ( cooked in microwave for 3 minutes)
Pinch of sea sat
Pinch of crushed black peppercorns
Mix together your corned beef and veg and set aside. Mix your flour, egg, milk and seasoning together into a thick batter and leave to stand for 10 minutes ( more if you have time)
then stir in your corned beef and vegetables.
Place a large frying pan over a high heat and add your vegetable oil, heat until bubbling and then add dollops of your batter mix. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden.
Serve with a large green salad and a sweet chilli sauce perhaps.
This meal costs less than £4.50 to make including salad and sauce and makes more than enough for two hungry adults and one energetic toddler. The hint of chilli in the corned beef gives the fritters a bit of a kick but is subtle enough for children to eat and enjoy.
