Cooked up corned beef, fried dumplings and fried plantains.

I love dishes that are not only flavoursome but also reminds me of my carefree childhood years. Corn beef is a well known English product, but it is eaten in many Caribbean kitchens, which I can only think of is to do with many of the Caribbean islands were former colonies for England. I don't even know what traditional corn beef meals are eaten with but I'm so used to eating corn beef with fried dumplings and fried plantain, it's become comfort food.
The corn beef is "cooked up" by which I mean is cooked with onions, tomatoes and sweet  peppers until the vegetables are cooked, I rarely deviate from these ingredients but have occasion tossed a couple of mushrooms in to bulk the meal. The fried dumplings are also a firm favourite of mine and the recipe can be found on the link here.
Here is how my corn beef dish turned out:

1) Add the oil into a frying pan and fry the sliced onion and yellow pepper to the pan. Cook for around 5 minutes.
