    I halved the recipe as it was just a meal for myself, and only used carrots and potatoes as they were all I had in the house. And I must say OMG this is delicious, I'm so going to make it again if I have half a can of corned beef in the fridge  -  31 Dec 2009


    Yummy and so easy! I don't use gravy granules so I used a little cornflour to thicken the gravy and it was perfect. I might try swede in place of parsnip next time as the parsnip does make it quite sweet. Looking for something cheap but wholesome with lots of lovely veggies, then this is a good recipe to use.  -  01 Feb 2012


    Really tasty. Adding gravy granules is a must - I didn't, so the gravy was thin. I will most certainly make this again, thanks.  -  07 Mar 2010
