*CORNEDbeef._

our viand for lunch

I took the task of cooking our lunch. I did it in 1 and ½ hours. I cooked rice for the 3 of us through the rice cooker, and another for our dogs in the cauldron. Then I thought of sautéing corned beef, half with just onions and garlic, and the other half mixed with vermicelli. I soaked the vermicelli in lukewarm water for an hour so the noodles will not collect much water when I add for its broth. The dish can be eaten as a snack or with rice. I did the second. So, it was carbohydrates plus carbohydrates for my lunch. From the nearly full saucepan, only a small portion is already left for our dinner. If the first corned beef dish will have leftover, I can just add eggs to make an omelet. And that is our way of a frugal meal.

is vermicelli sotanghon or bihon? this is the first time i've seen corned beef with noodles. we usually saute in potatoes or cabbage. are those mangoes, the yellow one?

yes, i used vermicelli (sotanghon) and it is good. it can be a snack or a viand. just like vermicelli and salmon, this taste good according to my standard. we tend to discover viands when there is nothing to buy in the flee markets. why don't you tey it? just saute with garlic and onion, then the corned beef, bring to a boil, then add the soaked vermicelli. i usually add ground pepper and salt to taste. yes those yellow slices are mangoes.

hahaha! hija, the bowl's all drained na since last night. yes, sometimes i cooke corned beef with cubed potatoes. have you tried adding mixed vegetables too? the one with the potatoes are usually a dry dish for me. if i add water as broth/soup, more often than not, the potatoes will seep the water.

@ridingbet Hello po. I have never tried mixing other vegetables. Usually the potatoes only and then sotanghon. I remember my dad adding that.

@ridingbet What you did with the corn beef sounds interesting. I just started buying corned beef in the package and ate it with pastromi and it was good.

I'm very familiar with that dish. I missed eating vermicelli, corned beef with pandesal. Sotanghon the best! A mouthwatering dish you have there.

@ridingbet haha! believe me, that's part of my diet before. But the way that vermicelli of yours looks, I think it's a killer. Delicious. My sotanghon is what they call "pacham" in the Philippines.

@TreinY pacham? i have never heard that word here. maybe because we live in different regions.

you can try it. you just have to saute the onions and garlic, add the corned beef, add water, then the vermicelli. sometimes the noodles collect the water so it may be dry (like bihon) but the taste/flavor is already embedded in the broth and the noodles.
