Tricky to open, too much fat & very little flavour
Although I haven't had it for a while, I do enjoy Princes corned beef, or, rather I did. I decided to buy a tin the other day. Firstly I struggled with the key, got it most of the way round the can but then the strip of metal just unraveled from the key and I had to pull it the rest of the way by hand. It was very sharp so I had to wind a teatowel round it so that I didn't cut myself. It also made it difficult to dispose of as I didn't want the recycling centre staff to injure themselves. The meat itself was bleeurgh. Just nothing. A lot of fat that I had to scrape off, but no taste to the corned beef. It was very disappointing. Another food memory spoilt.
On 2 recent occasions bought tins for a change. The first tear strip broke off leaving only a small piece in the winding key. Large pliers and immense force used to undo the can. The second tin started to unwind but then the opening ran down the can instead of along both scored lines around the can. Two tin openers and a lot of force were required to open enough of the can to spoon out the contents. The opening process does NOT work, the cans are far too strong. I have strong hands, these cans would totally defeat anyone with arthritic hands or weak wrists. Will not buy any more
Would NEVER buy this again
Absolutely hate it - it's worse than tasteless. There's a nasty aftertaste which is a bit difficult to describe.

This is a regular in my shop buy always arrived without key 😡
Very nice and tasty corned beef....but had difficulty opening the can,the key would not turn and eventually broke,...had to open it with a tinopener.
My dog wouldn't even eat it
What happened to this product. It used to be amazing, but they reduced the fat and salt, now it's a tasteless hard dry mass of mechanically removed cow derived protein.
Chill in fridge - unopened. Either make a hot pot or slice for a salad or a sandwich(A touch of mustard / tomato sauce/pickle makes a great snack.) Good quality.
Fridge it before slicing to get it firm, tastes ok, my regular CB.
Stovies (or Shepherds Pie 1940s style)
For those that point out it is salty... that's what the "corned" bit of "corned beef" means. For those that are concerned at the fat content it is brisket, that's what the "beef" bit refers to. Personally I find this a long overlooked delicacy.
Tasteless . The worse corn beef Ive ever had . No
Tasteless . The worse corn beef Ive ever had . No flavour at all and spongy . Won't buy again . Better off with Tesco sliced corned beef
