Servings: 4
Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time20 minutes
Total Time35 minutes


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 small onion or large shallot – peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic – peeled and chopped
  • 1 orange pepper – deseeded and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp dried chillis
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes – a good quality brand will give a better result
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 a 340g can Princes corned beef – diced
  • 4 eggs – free range
  • 60 g grated cheese – I use cheddar

To serve


  • Pour the olive oil into a large frying pan, add the onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes until starting to turn golden. Add the peppers, season with pepper and salt and fry until soft. Add the tinned tomatoes, the chilli and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Once the sauce has thickened add in the Princes Corned Beef, stir and cook for another few minutes until you have a rich thick corned beef ragu.
  • Divide the mixture between 4 mini casseroles, or pour into one large gratin dish.
  • Make a well in the centre of each dish and pour in an egg. Top with a sprinkling of grated cheese. Bake at 180C / GM 4 for 15 – 20 minutes until the whites have set but the centre still has some wobble.
  • Top with fresh coriander and serve with a wedge of lime and some tortilla chips.


Make a double batch of the Princes Corned Beef ragu, freeze the extra for use as a quick and simple pasta sauce.
