Cornsilog (Corned Beef,
Sinangag at Itlog)

As the saying goes, you should eat breakfast like a king, and we Filipinos take this phrase to heart. Our breakfasts could be considered heavy by other countries’ standards. It usually consists of fried rice, eggs and some form of meat or dried, salted fish, and maybe some pan de sal (bread). Eating cereal is just not enough for us.

The most common breakfast combo is the Silog dish. It is a play for the words SInangag (fried rice) and itLOG (egg). The most popular is the Tapsilog, which is the addition of TAPa, a dried or cured beef slice. This dish has brought forth other combinations of fried rice and fried egg as the suffix, and a shortened form of the meat viand in the prefix. For example, there is Bangsilog (bangus), Hotsilog (hotdog), Chiksilog(fired chicken), Tosilog (tocino), Litsilog (lechon), Adosilog (adobo), and the list goes on and on.

This recipe is called Cornsilog, for CORNed beef. This dish is a creative way of preparing canned corned beef which is a staple in most households.
