What's the big idea?
Originating from the area around Wigan in Lancashire, "Lobbys" or "Lobby" is a dish which has no fixed, set-in-stone recipe, as originally whatever leftover
food and seasonal vegetables were avaiable would be "lobbed" into the pot. Over the years the recipe has standardised somewhat into a sort of corned beef hash, which is
still popular in the Wigan area; indeed the people of the Wigan area are sometimes know as "lobby gobblers" by their neighbours!
Serve with warm, crusty bread and butter.
Here's the list of what you need:
What To Do
- 1 whole tin (300-400g) of Corned Beef
- 2 beef stock cubes
- 1lb potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1lb carrots, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
- Remove the corned beef from its tin and dice it into cubes
- Place the corned beef into a large saucepan. Add 2 pints of water and the stock cubes (crumbled)
- Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat until simmering
- Add the vegetables to the saucepan and continue to simmer until the vegetables are ready to eat
- Add more water if needed during the cooking process
- Remove from the heat and serve in bowls with warm, crusty bread
