「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

罐頭鹹牛肉 Canned corned beef

罐頭鹹牛肉 Canned corned beef



噢!噢!噢!這篇儲存在艙底的文字,今天重見天日了!


偶然到茶餐廳都會見到, 牛肉治 或 煎蛋牛肉治,不過若是地道香港人,一定知道,這不是用新鮮牛肉做的三文治,不會誤會。因為用新鮮牛肉做的三文治,在餐牌上叫“鮮牛肉治”,價錢也貴得多。


咁樣是甚麼牛肉呢?是香港人的都會知道,那是用罐頭鹹牛肉做的。入到百佳的網頁,search 原來還有得供應。有長城牌的國產鹹牛肉罐頭 方罐的 GREATWALL CORNED BEEF (RECTANGULAR) 340G HK$16.60,圓罐的GREATWALL CORNED BEEF (ROUND) 340G HK$16.20 也有來佬的 鹹牛肉罐頭 LIBBY'S CORNED BEEF 340GM HK$44.90,價錢相差頗大。

但論懷舊,兩個牌子都是舊時,家中購買過來吃的。當然舊時祟洋覺得 Libby, Mc Neill & Libby 鹹牛肉罐頭,是好吃啲、好味啲嘅。但究竟是不是呢?心理作用罷了!


兒時間中母親大人放假,不入廚房,或者和啲“晏瑅”去街街,父親放工回來(老爸一向少吃快餐),用電飯煲煮好飯後,開罐鹹牛肉罐頭,叁仔爺各用筷子,掘一舊鹹牛肉落飯碗,熱烘烘、熱呼呼的白飯,溶掉牛肉的肥膏,搓鬆了之後,撈勻白飯來吃。嘩!嘩!嘩!細路仔視為美食了,連盡兩碗白飯,咁又攪豎一餐,平、靚、正也!


牛肉治 或 煎蛋牛肉治,是茶餐廳餐牌常備的 Snacks 小食。坊間的茶餐廳用邊隻牌子,當然不會是來佬的罷,可能連長城牌都不是,用些越南,泰國的 no name 牌子,貪便宜嘛,成本平啲嘛。

過去的週五放下晝,去睇完場電影,入到佳佳買餸,天時暑熱,不想入廚房,咁就買了罐 Libby 鹹牛肉罐頭,返屋企煮煲白飯,撈鹹牛肉吃,咁就攪掂,醫妥個肚子。還有剩低未吃完的,週六早午餐 brunch,就弄鹹牛肉煎蛋三文治吃,快夾妥也!


咁這篇短文,有沒有喚醒你的懷舊腦細胞和味蕾,也想吃吃罐頭鹹牛肉呢?

>>"掘"一舊鹹牛肉

實在是再貼切不過的描述!!

我也是很喜歡吃的,被你引到我即刻想吃喔。

小朱姐: 你都同意“掘”就好了,吃過的都會知道,要用力才可以掘開啲鹹牛肉吃。長城牌的比較鬆,體積看起來大些多些,不用掘開來吃。來佬嘅牌子,都 pack 得好實,貨真價實,價錢也較貴。

一向很少食,
味道好似唔錯,
唔知是不是健康食物之一,
會唔會好高膽固純呢?

新鮮兄:香港沒有標簽法例列明 nutrition facts,顧特別上網為兄臺查明,Libby canned corned beef 的 cholesterol 和 SPAM 午餐肉雙若,不算高但都有膽固醇。但都是沒有 trans fat 反式脂肪。

I used to have 牛肉治 for lunch in Central District HK when I was a student. The canned Hereford corned-beef was from Argentina.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corned_beef

I remember the tapered can came with a "key" that "wrapped" the cut metal around itself when the can was being opened.

The meat had all kinds of preservatives (e.g. nitrite) in it but heck those were the days.

space,
哦~
唔該哂,
咁間唔中食吓都唔大問題喎!

罐頭鹹牛肉,未食過,很難想像是什麼味道!

hari big brother,
舊時的罐頭有防腐劑,今時的罐頭也有防腐劑,只要不常吃,偶然懷舊一下罷。

還用條鎖匙開的罐頭,真的很懷舊,我在加拿大買SPAM午餐肉,都已改了用,二奶罐!

多謝你給我的連結,不知加拿大和美國有冇生產呢? Libby 是巴西的, Hereford 是阿根廷的,都是南美出品。

喺囉!新鮮兄做人咁辛苦,間唔中去鬆弛一吓喇。
間唔中吃一些應該無問題!

噢!紫丁香君:很難想像你沒有吃過”鹹牛肉”,往日的香港,這和我們常吃用豬肉做的午餐肉罐頭,一般普偏呢! 去去去,買返罐試吓,和你囝囝一起嚐新。

微豆 Haricot said...

The beef industry is big in both Canada (e.g. Alberta) and the US (e.g. Texas). So, I am sure there are companies that make corned beef and sell the canned products. I will take a closer look when I go to the grocery stores.

Hari big brother, I have tried to access Safeway, Loblaws, Sobeys, and Dominions to search for canned corned beef,in vain!

紫丁香 said...

以前媽媽很少煮牛肉,記憶中只有二次。現在家裡幾乎沒有食牛肉,只有去自助餐時才會嘗試。

the inner space said...

紫丁香君:自助餐的 prime rib and 和牛,都是高價貨,是高尚高級高價的自助餐才有得供應。

幫襯街邊茶餐廳吃鹹牛肉治可以常吃到。

Here in Ottawa, Nate's Deli is the place to go for corned beef sandwich, in my opinion.

Note: The owner of Nate's closed its location on Rideau Street near downtown abt a year ago, but has now re-opened at 1545 Merivale Rd.

tks HBB no matter where about Nate's I have no intention to travel all the way from HK to Ottawa for a piece of corned beef sandwich. But surely you can go for a couple of sandwiches after busy workout at the gym near Merivale Mall. Protein good for building up muscles!
