PUERTO RICAN STYLE CORNED BEEF AND RICE

Before we start cooking today, let me tell you my sad news.  My laptop is in the shop.  : (  It has been for a few days now.  Yes, I can use this one (Jorge’s), but it just isn’t the same.  Apparently, even with all my anti-virus protection, my computer was BADLY infected.  And I don’t know how it happened!  Grrrr….
One of the first and simplest Puerto Rican recipes I learned to cook was corned beef and rice.  I admit, it’s high in sodium, so I don’t advocate eating it every day, but every now and then, it is soooo good!  I quit measuring for this a long time ago, so I had to slow down and pay attention to what I was doing this time. 
PUERTO RICAN STYLE CORNED BEEF AND RICE
5 Tbsp canola oil
1 potato, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion

10 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, minced
1 packet Sazon
1 packet chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp Adobo
1 8-oz. can Iberia Spanish-style Tomato Sauce
6 oz. beef broth
1 can corned beef

1/4 cup green onion, chopped

Fry chopped potato in canola oil.  Remove from pan; drain on paper towel.  Add onion, garlic, pepper, and seasonings to pan.  Cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently.  Add tomato sauce and beef broth; bring to a boil.  Add corned beef; lower heat to simmer. It will probably be necessary to break up beef with fork.  Cover and cook at least 15 minutes.  Stir in potato and green onion; cook additional 5 minutes. 
 Serve with white rice.
Remember the tostones and garlic sauce?  Serve with the corned beef and rice…..Que bueno!
Until next time, Happy Cooking!   : )

    Can I do this with a real Corned Beef Brisket? I have a recipe from Alton Brown (FoodNetwork)

    Hmmm….interesting question. I don't think it would work. The canned variety is more of a ground meat and tastes different. If you do try it, please let me know how it turns out. Thanks for stopping by! : )
