Didn't realize corned beef is actually 'scorned' beef.

I grew up in the Philippines where corned beef is very popular and always comes from a can. Mind you, there it's considered at par with the other popular imported canned foods like Spam and Hormel Vienna sausages (vestiges of the country's American colonial past.) All these canned goods are considered relatively high-end because they are imported and expensive. There are local brands too and if you stroll though a supermarket in the Philippines, the corned beef aisle would showcase so many imported and local brands.

Corned beef is standard Filipino breakfast fare, sauted with garlic and sliced onions and accompanied by fried egg and garlic-fried rice. I grew up with corned beef, along with Spam.

Now I've grown to avoid salty and fatty foods. But I can't help but keep a few cans of Argentinian corned beef in my pantry for dire emergencies.

I've also on occasion tasted REAL corned beef with cabbages. Now does anyone have a TNT recipe for the real thing?

A wise observation that applies to a lot of things in life.
