When it comes to canned goods, lots of people opt to go the easy route in cooking it. After all, what’s inside often just needs a bit of applying some heat to get it ready for serving. But you can also get creative with this type of food, and end up with something rich and exciting for the palate. This is the beauty of Corned Beef Saute, made with a few more simple ingredients like onion, corn and carrot for a good variety of textures and flavors.
What does corned beef saute taste like?
Since we are working with corned beef, which has a savory flavor in itself, you can expect something that is nicely salted, and tastes perfectly meaty. But we are mixing in some garlic, onion and butter for a bit more depth, as well as an irresistible buttery quality to the beef. What I also like about the corned beef that is famous in the Philippines is that it is very convenient to eat. Since the meat is cut up into flakes, it also complements other tidbits of ingredients well like our green peas.
And even if I did describe this recipe as a way to get creative with your corned beef, you won’t have to worry about a complicated cooking process. There are just a few easy steps to making this Corned Beef Saute happen. We will mostly just be mixing in our ingredients together while, as you may have guessed with the name, sautéing them. Let’s get started then!
How to Make Corned Beef Saute
1. Sautéing the garlic and onion
- Melting your butter – We are kicking things off by putting our 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan. Apply some heat so we can let this melt.
- Adding garlic and onion – Once your butter is melted, it is time to incorporate 3 cloves of garlic you’ve chopped. Also put 1 onion you’ve chopped in the pan. Just sauté everything until the onion gets nice and soft.
2. Cooking the corned beef
- Adding the CDO Home Style Corned Beef – Just open up your can, and put the contents in the pan as well. We will sauté this with your garlic and onion for just 1 minute.
3. Sautéing everything with some more vegetables
- Integrating more ingredients – Now we have to add 1 carrot we’ve cubed, ¼ cup of whole kernel corn, and ¼ cup of green peas. Then keep everything cooking for approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Make sure that the food is not getting too brown or overcooked.
- Seasoning the dish – For our final step, we just need to sprinkle in as much salt and ground black pepper as we prefer.
- Time to serve – Transfer your dish onto a serving plate of choice. Make sure to have this alongside some freshly cooked rice.
