You must be super super sensitive to the stuff. :smile: I always have a can in my 'Brexit emergency' cupboard, but have never detected any trace of garlic. Ours was always from Brazil or Argentina, but I've had it (to my surprise0 from some place in Africa .

Fry it and combine with mashed carrots than seal it under mashed potato and call it Drover's Pie.
Thanks Liz, it does look nice doesn't it.
I bought veggies yesterday and boiled sprouts. Steak pudding and sprouts for dinner and pork pie with sprouts and mushy peas for tea. The new season sprouts are lovely.

Works every time and is delicious. Enjoy

Ingredients
1.5 to 1.7 kg corned silverside
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 onion cut in half
4 cloves
6 peppercorns
1 bay leaf
3 cups water

Method
Rinse the meat under cold running water to remove excess salt. Place in a 4 litre casserole dish. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on High for 10 minutes. Turn the meat over and cook on Medium – Low for 1.25 to 1.5 hours. Stand in the cooking liquid for 10 minutes before carving. Depending on the shape of the meat it may require another 10 to 15 minutes extra coking on Low.

I set off to make Leek and Cauliflower a la Wendy but got sidetracked by wanting to use bacon and onions that were fine but needing using. I ended up with two separate pans, one of Leeks, onions, bacon, butter and cream and one of mashed carrots with steamed green cabbage and cream. I also set the slow cooker to work on mutton and beef in Cider. That will be deboned and defatted this morning, the gravy has been in the fridge all night.
Dinner was a meat pie veggies and Leek and Onion. Tea was a steak pudding and veggies. I shall construct a stew this morning!
