Corned Beef Sinigang

It's a rainy Thursday again and Wahvu and I spent the whole afternoon electric fan-less, with just the windows opened and curtains drawn. A perfect bed weather again! 

But just as when it's already dinner time, Wahvu suddenly craved for Sinigang (Sour Broth). Oh no, how I am going to run to the grocery at the last minute?

I scoured the pantry for ingredients that I can use and luckily I have it in stock!

So tonight I am going to cook Corned Beef Sinigang for Wahvu, it's an old recipe I learned from Chef Tristan Encarnacion many years ago. So my guess is you might be familiar with this recipe already.


String beans
Pechay (or any leafy vegetable of your choice)
Onions (I used 3 large sizes, it's Wahvu's favorite)
Tomatoes (Optional)
Corned Beef (I use Swift Corned Beef small pouches)

Knorr Sinigang Recipe Mix (any variant will do - Sampalok, Miso, or Gabi)

How to do it:
First, sauté the onions and tomatoes.

Add the corned beef.

Add water, then the Sinigang Mix. 

When it boils, I let it simmer for 5-10 minutes in medium heat.

Then I add the vegetables. Boil, and then remove from heat.

 Serve warm with rice.
