Corned Beef, Onion and Potatoes

I don't know if any of you remember Maggie and Jiggs from the comic strip Bringing up Father, if you don't, go have a look atWiki. I can understand Jiggs's love for Corned Beef and Cabbage cos my family too love Corned beef from the can. It is a must in our pantry as it is so versatile to cook with.
1 can Corned beef
1 small onion - sliced
2 potatoes - peeled and diced
1/4 tsp pepper
oil for frying the potatoes
chopped spring onions for garnishing

Heat oil and fry the diced potatoes until light brown.
Remove and set aside.
Remove all the oil and heat wok/skillet again.
When heated, add in 1 tbsp oil and sweat the sliced onions.
Add in the corned beef and saute until fragrant.
Add in the fried potatoes and saute to combine.
Add pepper, dish out and garnish with spring onions before serving.

In Hawaii we mash up the potatoes with the can corned beef add beaten egg and shape into pattys. Deep fried it. It sold in all okazuya take out.

Yes.. this is a staple in our house too :)
In addition to potatoes and green onions, I add a sprig of thyme and minced chilies.

This is great for brunch with fried eggs (over easy) and hearty bread.

For dinner, we eat this with steamed rice.

Hello Lily, any more of that delicious corn of my weaknesses, besides hum choy pai kuat tong, ha ha.
Guess you're a gourmet cook....

You have a beautiful weekend and keep a song in your heat, Lee.
