Corned Beef Guisado

By on 8:33 PM

Corned beef guisado is a very common Pinoy recipe in the Philippines.  This is basically just a corned beef sauteed in garlic and onion, and mixed with some potatoes.  This is very common because this is cheap and very easy to make.  But corned beef guisado is very tasty, especially the corned beef that is made in the Philippines.  For some reason, the corned beef that you can buy here in the US is too bland.  The Pinoys can make it even better which I am so proud of.

Ironically, most of the Pinoys who are in the Philippines prefer the imported corned beef, or we usually call it “stateside.”  I don’t even like the Libby’s brand.  It’s not as chunky and flavorful as the Argentina corned beef that is made in the Philippines.  However, if you are outside the Philippines, any brand of corned beef will do if you are craving for some Pinoy recipe corned beef guisado.

Corned beef guisado goes very well with steamed rice or fried rice.  It is also delicious if you are going to eat with pandesal and kape.  Oh I miss those early morning breakfast in my hometown where you can smell the freshly baked pandesal from my grandma’s hurnohan or pugon, and the sauteed corned beef from the kitchen.  And also, the kapeng barako that is being made by my aunt.  These memories makes me wanna go back to the Philippines so bad.


1 can Libby’s Corned Beef
