As a child, Edwin's mom told him, "If you want to eat, you should cook it yourself." And that's exactly what he's been doing ever since.

Corned Beef for Breakfast

Hawaiians love their Spam, and Filipinos love their canned corned beef! When I was a child living in the Philippines, I thought that corned beef came in a can. Imagine my surprise when I immigrated to the United States and tried corned beef for the very first time on St. Patrick's Day!

Typically, Filipinos eat fried rice and meat for breakfast, such as longganisa (sausages), tapa (beef flank steak), tocino (cured pork) or fish. In this recipe, we'll be using canned corned beef to make the hash. It goes well with steamed or fried rice and is also usually served with a fried egg.

You can also use this corned beef hash as a sandwich filling. That's what I did as a kid when there was leftover corned beef hash; I would bring a corned beef hash sandwich for lunch at school.

Next time you're at the grocery store, pick up a can of corned beef and give this recipe a try.

There are many brands of canned corned beef, and I've tried most of them. For this recipe, I prefer Libby's brand. The reason is that the other brands tend to contain a lot of moisture and are too soft, which results in a very mushy corned beef hash. To avoid this, it's better to use a drier type of corned beef. This allows you to adjust the liquids you add to suit your own taste. If you want your corned beef hash to be drier, use less broth. If you want it to be more moist, add more broth. At least you will be in control of the results. Enjoy!
