The result is a tasty beef ulam that's spicy and garlicky in a can that's super flavorful with every spoonful you take.
However, upon opening this can, you'll immediately be greeted with a layer of lard. This is a good thing. What people, in general, may not know is that "fat is flavor". This is actually a belief held true in many professional kitchens, and this is based on the fact that flavor compounds are more soluble in fat, such as that you'll find in oil and beef fat, than in water. What this means is that it's the fat where you will find the most flavor, not the soup. This is why spices are bloomed in oil, including chilis. That's why it's more common to find chili oil than chili water. It is just more potent and tasty.
Does this mean that this can of corned beef is tastier because it's got more fat in the can? You need to try this corned beef version to believe it yourself!
