Corned Beef Spaghetti

Corned Beef Spaghetti is a type of Filipino spaghetti prepared with canned corned beef instead of minced meats, other ingredients remain the same.


Filipinos are very resourceful that is why we have dishes like this, when a certain ingredient is unavailable, we try to replace it with something that can work, take this spaghetti for example. Usually spaghetti back home usually is prepared with a mixture of pork and beef mince, extenders are also used to feed more family members like the use of sliced hotdogs or ham but if you don’t have any of the above well sari-sari store is your answer. Just buy some canned corned beef, and if you are lucky you might still have that Libby’s corned beef in your pantry, the pasalubong or padala from overseas relatives last Christmas.

Like the Filipino spaghetti this is sweet but due to the corned beef it’s a bit tastier and saltier, it is easier to prepare as well as corned beef in can are usually cooked drastically reducing the cooking time of the whole dish, it may not be for everyone especially when you are used to the Italian pasta but you never know you might like it, give it a shot and let us know.
