If you have enough pans and cooking space, it’s a good idea to cook everything at once so its all nice and hot when you bring it together. Also, feel free to add some diced potatoes, carrots or other vegetables while cooking the corned beef. It adds more texture and flavor. Just be cautious with your salt. The corned beef and canton noodles probably already have a high salt content.
