  2. Add the corned beef and mix it in well with onions and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Layer over the potato slices and cover with stock to taste and consistency required. If becomes too dry, add additional stock as required.
  4. Simmer gently on the hob for about an hour or so or until potatoes are soft and fully cooked through.
