Tony Stallone: Corned Beef Leftovers

March 9, 2014

One of the best reasons to make it is for leftovers. You don't just have to rely on sandwiches. Tony Stallone with Peapod, came into our ABC 7 Eyewitness News studio to show us how to make corned beef hash.

Tony's Tips For Buying Corned Beef:
1. Beware of the Sodium
Corned Beef can range from 550mg up to 1050mg per serving.

2. All corned beef is not created equal.
- There are 2 types of corned beef, point and brisket.
- Points are fattier, so if you like more fat this is the cut for you.
- Brisket or Flat is leaner, and in my opinion a more flavorful cut.

3. Don't let the price fool you - read the fine print
- Points are far cheaper, but there is more waste because of the fat.
- Brisket or Flats are more expensive but have less waste.

4. Save some for later
