Step 2: Add 50ml of malt vinegar and 50ml olive oil.

Step 3: For the potato rosti, use 650g waxy potatoes with boiled skin on for exactly 5 minutes. Drain the water when done.

Step 4: Once the spuds are cool enough to handle peel, then coarsely grate into a bowl, add 75g butter and season really well.

Step 6: Add 100g grated strong cheddar cheese, 100g corned beef and 3 chopped gherkins.

Step 7: Now add another ¼ of the spuds and press down.

Step 8: Invert and flip out on to a plate, then slide back into the pan. Sprinkle with extra cheese.

Step 9: With the rest of the mixture, which includes another 100g of cheese, corned beer and 3 chopped gherkins, use this to make another batch.

Step 10: Cook at 200C for about 12 minutes until crisp and golden.

Step 11: Serve the tomatoes on top of the rosti and a good dollop of brown sauce.
