Many of my friends have only eaten boiled or canned corned beef before they met me. One friend in particular, asked what I was cooking. I told her 'corned beef and cabbage'. I asked if she wanted to taste and she said she never has liked it. I asked how it was fixed. Finally figured it out as caned. She took a small bite, before she left, she had 2 large slices and was licking her lips all the way home.
