Corned Beef with Cabbage

We Filipinos are so fond of corned beef. I grew up getting used to my corned beef sauteed in onions or tomatoes or sometimes both. Other times my mom cooked it with potatoes. Because in our backyard, we grew sayote abundantly (well, they actually keep on spouting out of nowhere, she tried adding sayote to our dear canned corned beef. Of course she never tried to force sayote on me.

Anyway, now that I am the official cook in my family, coming home late from work, I asked hubby to just cook anything in the fridge. He did with a little fear. He opened the cupboard and there was one can of corned beef waiting to be opened. He opened the fridge and there was another one, a cabbage head. Guess what we had for dinner? It wasn't that bad and I actually found a way of incorporating veggies in my children's meal.

Do I need to tell you how it's cooked?

Ang ganda ng corned beef mo, hindi durog durog. Is that canned? Most of the canned corned beef sold here look like corned beef hash minus the potatoes. The frozen corned beef naman is too watery.

Sauteed corned beef with cabbage is comfort food for me. Sassy, d ba uso dito chunky? Though I haven't tried them, I like Argentina and Purefoods, but not the chunky version. Longer shreds, better taste than the imported ones.

Sassy, there is a particular brand I use..Palm from Australia(Halal Certified daw).

Kai, I tried them when I went home. The grains of the Palm Corned Beef are still bigger and chunkier I think. Personally, masarap 'tong Palm.

Eden, I'm assuming you've tried it by now. How was it?

Ting,

Saan ako pwedeng makakita ng Palm brand? Is there's any specific store who carry this kind of corn beef brand? Please let me know.

Thanks

Tin

Oh yeah, my husband said Palm is good. We were given some cans from the duty free shop by my balikbayan sis-in-law - I usually give them away because she buys the cheapest ones, like Hereford, and they have the consistency and taste of liver spread. ;-)

ayaw naman ni swiss cheese maalat daw, but every now and then I crave for this sarap patong sa mainit na kanin

it looks really nice and I miss eating cornedbeef as well. I manage to get some from my aunt since she buys them in London usually coz they dont have one in Finland and neither in Norway except probably in some stores but not the variety that I really want.

I love this. This was regular breakfast fare back at home. Awww I miss breakfasts with my family!

Thank you for reminding me this recipe, tagal ko nang di nakakaluto nito.

Masarap nga ang Palm brand na corned beef.

This corned beef looks like what corned beef should be... not like the ones we get here in cans - almost mashed. Last night, i found one that is in a sealed bag in the meat section of the supermarket. Irish corned beef. It seems it still needs boiling (it was a whole piece of meat) - i wanted to get it but not sure how to prepare it before using it for cooking.

Palm corned beef is really good, i was looking for Argentina corned beef here in Daly City but couldn't find one, so I tried Palm, I was surprised, hindi maalat and very tasty. I ate it last night, during lunch and will still eat it tonight.
