I was sent over a few cans of Highlands Gold Corned Beef to try out. The packaging was simple and elegant with gold trimmings to match the name. “Made from Angus Beef” was printed prominently in front of the can, under the brand.
I just love cans with easy open lids, don’t you just hate scrounging around for the can opener when it get buried under the other kitchen tools. It’s so easy to open, my little friend here can do it all by herself.
Once you open the can you’ll see it filled almost to the brim with tightly packed strands of beef. I was really surprised at the thickness of the strands, it looked similar to my favorite brand.
Corned beef is an easy to cook food that I associate with breakfast but this time around I remembered a dish I used to order in high school, corned beef omelette. The ingredients are simple. eggs, onions and corned beef.
First, Irene sauteed the Highland Gold corned beef in some onions, I prefer my corned beef not too toasted so the end product is just right. I sneaked in a little taste before she started on the omelette and I was honestly surprised how good it tasted. You could taste the meat with really good flavor and not salty unlike my current fave brand.
Look at that corned beef, the strand are thick and long, looks so premium. The meat is chunky and the strands are long and you can really taste the premium Angus beef they use because of the strong beef flavor. Irene finished up the omelette and transferred it to a plate where my rumbling tummy awaited.
Time for lunch, I paired it with some sliced tomatoes and a cup of red rice. I quickly polished off the plate in no time and told Irene that this is the brand we should be buying from now on. The corned beef had less oil and salt so it’s not only tasted better but it was healthier.
Highlands Gold Corned Beef is available in leading supermarkets for an SRP of P150 for a 320 gram can.
