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!
