What does a Filipino do when he can stock up on canned goods? Buy corned beef!
There are so many stories about corned beef and the Pinoy; like what does an immigrant do when he is able to send something to his family back home? Send a Balikbayan box loaded with canned corned beef – as if we don’t have any here in the Philippines!
But I beg your pardon – imported corned beef has a magical charm of it’s own. I can understand this because my good friend Twin Milette Orosa likes Ox and Palm corned beef, and I agree, it does taste oh so much better.
So now in this time of quarantine cooking, what do we do with all that corned beef? Let’s do Corned Beef Hash Pinoy Style!
