Spending time over the kitchen...Menu for the day..Ady's corned beef ala carrots de patatas

This is the other side of me when I'm just at home...COOKING...I knew how to cook since i was a little kid...if I'm not mistaken i first cooked some rice when i was 5 years old and it all started there..It's always been my interest being around the kitchen and it's not because i do love to eat but i just love to cook and discover new menu's by my own..This is what i cooked over lunch for me..I call this dish...ADY'S CORNED BEEF ALA CARROTS DE PATATAS..First off,here are the ingredients:


1.>>>The union, the garlic and the sliced carrots...Make it sure that THE carrots are soaked into the water for a while to retain its freshness and color..



2.>>>The patatas or what we called potato...Patatas is a tagalog and cebuano term..Still it has to be soaked onto the water for a while to retain its freshness and color...Potatoes are sensitive and it has to stay in the water until it will be added into the mixture...


3.>>> The corned beef...I use the canned one because it is ready to cook and it doesn't really needed to be fry for long..You can use the ground beef as alternative on this menu..







COOKING TIME...THE PROCEDURE



1.>>> Saute the union and the garlic with an oil in a pan for a few minutes until the ingredients turns into brown color...Mix it very well..


2.>>>Add on the corned beef to the mixture..Saute it very well for a few minutes..No need to fry it for long because it's already cooked..


3.>>>Add on the sliced carrots and mix it very well with th rest of the mixture..Add a little amount of water and have it boil until the carrots are tender...


4.>>>Add the remaining ingredient..the potato...Mix it very well with rest of the mixture..No need to add water anymore..Cover the mixture and have it boil for a bit until the patatas are tender...


5.>>> Add the seasoning to taste..So this menu is very easy to do..It is good for 4 servings match with rice and a softdrink..


THIS WAS MY LUNCH...YUMMY...
