I make Newfie Dinner for every cooked dinner occasion..its a tradition!! My Family is all from Newfie. I however do not soak my salt beef or my peas overnight.I put the salt beef in the pot and bring to a boil then taste the water,if its to salty I will drain off some water add more and reboil. My peas are put into my bag dry and tossed in with the salt beef in the morning around 10:00-11:00am.I let it boil all day and in the afternoon around 4:00pm I start the Veggies...dinners ready by 5:30. Very very Yummy dinner and the house smells amazing!!!
This if fantastic, thanks :o) My hubby is a Newfy, and he told me about this "Jiggs Dinner", so I made it for his birthday, and not only did he love it, but said it was totally authentic, and he (and his mom who lives in Newfy-land) were impressed that I went as far as to make it with Peas pudding AND Figgy Duff... He said it was totally authentic. Thanks!
