Canned corned beef is a pantry staple in my house. When my favorite brand goes on sale, I make sure to stock up a few cans to use in my home cooking.

Not only is it relatively inexpensive, it’s also easy to prepare. Other than the regular ginisa with onions and potatoes, there are so many delicious nashville filipino food meals the potted meat can be used such as in bread,sinigang soups, frittatas, and pasta sauces.

Unlike my Filipino-style spaghetti which requires a more extensive list of ingredients (yes, hot dogs!) and little longer cook time (need to simmer all those flavors together!), this corned beef spaghetti version pulls together with just a handful of ingredients and in less than twenty minutes.

Cooking Tips

  • For best texture, use chunky corned beef. My preferred brands are Ox & Palm and Purefoods.
  • The recipe uses packaged Filipino sweet-style spaghetti sauce, but feel free to make it from scratch using tomato sauce and banana ketchup if you like.
  • Boost the texture and nutrients by adding veggies to the sauce such as chopped bell peppers and mushrooms.
  • Give it a smoky layer of flavor with hot dogs, bacon, or ham.

Storing leftovers

  • To store leftovers, it’s best to keep the sauce and noodles separately as they may require different thaw and reheat times. Transfer to airtight containers and keep in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer for up to two weeks for noodles and up to 3 months for meat sauce.
  • To reheat, drop the frozen spaghetti in boiling water for 1 to 2 minutes and heat the sauce in a saucepan over medium heat until internal temperature reads 165 F. Or, drop the noodles directly into the simmering sauce and cook until the desired temperature is reached.
