I had this wonderful looking corned beef that we bought on sale. I wanted to make something different with it and for those that follow me, well you know how I like to make soup. So I thought, why not create a Corned Beef Soup!

I thought this was a pretty good buy since I love corned beef!

Seems like only yesterday they only cost $9.00, not on sale!

  1. Yum. I love corned beef. I had always thought it was very English, but in England the only corned beef to be found is in a can. It’s obviously something available in America. It’s one of our cheaper pieces of meat here in Australia.
