Corned Beef Hash

Corned beef hash is a popular dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the Philippines.  It is so quick and easy to make and is considered to be a comfort food.  The traditional corned beef hash is composed of canned corned beef and potatoes and flavored with garlic and onions.  Tomatoes are added at times.  The dish is a combination of both American and Spanish influences -- canned corned beef and sofrito, a basic sauce composed of garlic, onions and tomatoes.
