Garlic Fried Rice, Corned Beef Hash, And Fried Egg: A Filipino Breakfast

Labels: , , ,

The theme for this week's Lasang Pinoy Sundays is BREAKFAST and one of our all-time weekend favorites is Corned Beef Hash with garlic fried rice and sunny-side-up or over-easy fried eggs.

Corned Beef Hash
corned beef

1½ pounds beef brisket
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon pickling spice
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, quartered
¾ teaspoon pink salt, optional (if you prefer the cooked meat with red hue)

corned beef hash

cooked corned beef
2 tablespoons olive or grapeseed oil
1 medium red-skinned potatoes, peeled and cut into very small cubes
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium onion, sliced thin
1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
  • Cook the corned beef: Put brisket in a pot large enough to accommodate the brisket. Add the rest of the ingredients and enough water to cover meat. Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat down to medium, and boil for 2 hours. Remove cooked meat and transfer into a plate. Leave until cool enough to handle.
  • Prepare the corned beef hash: Slice the brisket across the grain into 1½-inch strips. Shred the meat using 2 forks or with (gloved) hands. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and fry potatoes until slightly brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon oil and sauté garlic and onion and cook until onion is soft. Add tomatoes and sauté for 1 minute. Add the shredded brisket and potatoes, stir fry for 1 minute. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Stir fry for another minute. Serve hot with garlic fried rice and fried or scrambled eggs.

homemade Corned Beef Hash is better than the canned pap

I also love corned beef with chunks of cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and turnips or white kohlrabi.
To make Corned
Beef And Cabbage: Double the ingredients. Remove meat after boiling and transfer to a platter. Strain the liquid and discard solids. Adjust seasoning and return liquid into the pot with the brisket and vegetables. Boil for 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Serve with grainy Dijon mustard or bottled horseradish sauce.

i believe this is not a canned corned beef :) I love this kind of corned beef :)

G, I have been enjoying the canned corned beef all my life and only recently started cooking my own. I still buy canned corned beef though.:)

Ruy, welcome back! The long cooking time is well worth it.:)

Iska, thanks! It's really good.:)

Ces, mmm...beef caldereta, yum!:)

Maiylah, my Dad refuses to eat the American style corned beef mush. He prefers the shredded style like this dish, available canned in the Philippines, I think Purefoods or Swift brand.

Marites, thanks.:)

Agent112778, the idea of shredded instead of finely minced corned beef comes from the Filipino canned corned beef as I mentioned above. It tastes better somehow when you can feel and chew the meat.:)

I miss making this stuff. I wonder where I can get canned purefoods corned beef. Or was it hormel?

I heart corned beef. I can eat this everyday! Your recipe looks very delish. I'll try it ha. :-)

Jude, there are a few cans of Filipino corned beef in my Philgrocer with labels I have never heard of.

Dyosa, me too, but I don't eat fried rice everyday, inside pandesal na lang.:)

ang galing mo naman, oggi, pati corned beef homemade :) I introduced my husband to corned beef hash for breakfast. He said he never had it before even though it's also common here in the south.

JMom, I cook corned beef once or at the most twice year.:)
I also thought corned beef hash is an American breakfast staple.
