I'm almost 40 years old and all my life I have never been able to successfully open a can of corned beef. Sounds deplorable I know but it's true. Today however has marked a glorious change. I have finally opened a can of corned beef!

This may be the dumbest instructable I have ever published or the dumbest instructable ever but this is how I open a can of corned beef!

Yes yes, I can see the world of crazy comments to follow but I just have to share this knowledge with others who are in my former state of inexperience.

Step 1: Removing the Key.

This is where I went wrong for so long. I needed to remove the damn key. Use a knife blade or spoon to Pry it out and get ready for action.

Step 2: The Correct Orientation.

Ah ha! The mystical position! The T of the key has to line up with the base of the can as shown. I used to try to roll it as packaged with the can. Yes folks, I will read the comments soon enough.

Step 3: Roll It Baby!

In our island culture we would say, "roll it gyal!" or to the non dialect speaking community, "roll it baby!"

A nice uniform roll keeping the T of the key on the base will give pain free results.

Step 4: All Done!

See the can is open and the beef is out! For the rest of the world this is a no brainer. For my single brain cell, it was a puzzle. For almost 4 decades I could not open a can of corned beef without using a can opener or hacksaw!

What a day, what a lovely day! So much so I can spray paint my mouth silver. Now after feeling so accomplished the corned beef is now dog food.

Huh? Whats what? Why is it dog food? Well I love my doggies. Also I can't stand corned beef. Never liked the stuff.

I hope I have helped someone out there!

<p>Thank you, thank you from my own single cell brain.</p>
<p>Made in Brazil! Hey!!</p>
<p>The idea is to take it easy and not to force it.</p>
<p>Some foreign made corned beef has an &quot;off&quot; taste.</p>
Granny, to me they all taste off.
<p>Your first (and only) mistake is that you keep getting CANNED corned beef. Get some of the real deal, and you may just like it too! I can't get enough of the stuff.</p>
<p>---or pastrami; you will never go back.</p>
<p>My issue is that I forget to check for the key while I'm in the supermarket.</p><p>Then I am at a hotel a thousand miles from home without tools and we all know that a can opener doesn't work around those corners. Then what ?</p><p>Can someone answer that ?</p>
Really sharp meat cleaver. Wham!
<p>This has to be fake. There's no way you did this without having to resort to using pliers. </p>
<p>Should we consider this Spam? xD</p>
<p>good lord yes!</p>
It looks like if I won't need a hammer and chisel again opening such a can next time ;)<br>Cheers!
Hey thanks!
My dogs won't touch the stuff
Hell, my dogs fight over Vegetables. They eat anything including my car mud guards and one front tire.
