Food Friday: Corned Beef Sinigang

food friday

Sinigang is a famous dish in the Philippines, it is typically sour and usually prepared with tamarind. Other ingredients like lemon, calamansi, and kamias can also be used for sinigang, but for corned beef, I recommend tamarind. Tamarind is also available in powdered form and it is easier to use when cooking sinigang.

A few years ago, a good friend invited us to dinner and he ordered corned beef sinigang. That was the first time I've heard of it and was really curious on how it tastes. It was so good so I tried making my own version.


1 can Corned Beef (any brand is ok but I prefer the chunky ones)
1 packet Sinigang Mix
4 cups of water
3 tomatoes, halved
1 onion, quartered
1 eggplant, sliced diagonally
1 radish, sliced diagonally
3 pieces okra (lady finger), halved
2 pieces long green chili pepper
4 small pieces of gabi (taro), peeled
1 cup kangkong (swamp cabbage) leaves
12 strings beans, cut into 3-inch long pieces


1. Bring the water to boil. When the water starts boiling, throw in the taro. Simmer until soft. Add the onion and tomatoes.
2. Add in the sinigang mix. Stir.
3. When the onion and tomato have softened, add the Corned Beef.
4. Bring to a boil, let simmer, then add the string beans and radish. When the radish and green beans are almost done, add the eggplant, then the okra and green chili pepper. Simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat then add the kangkong leaves. Cover for a few minutes.

I had to cheat on the photo and I apologize for that. Mine didn't turn out well so I had to borrow from yahoo images. Sorry guys.

Wow... pwede pala yung canned corned beef! Yung nakita ko dati sa cooking show gumawa talaga sila ng corned beef from scratch. At least ngayon alam kong pwede na gamitin yung de lata.

My Food Friday is HERE.
This is delicious looking and I think that I could make an incredible vegetarian version of this. Thanks for all your friday recipes!

Haven't tried that yet, looks different and yummy :)

We seldom eat corned beef now since we have lessened processed food. Our fave corned beef is the PF blue label, sarap din :)

Have a great weekend!

I used corned beef brisket in this recipe. Also I simmered it for about 4 hours.
