Breakfast Recipes: Corned beef with sayote

Corned beef with Sayote

In my quest to have variety in our everyday food, and considering the diet restriction of my husband, I’ve tweaked this famous Filipino breakfast recipe. (Kung maka recipe, mura jowg!)

This is often cooked with potato cubes but since potato has 17g of carbs per 100g, I’ve substituted it with sayote (chayote) which only has 4g of carbs per 100g.


1 clove of garlic, minced
1 small red onion, minced
1/2 medium sized sayote, peeled and cubed
1 can corned beef
1 tsp cooking oil


  1. Saute garlic and onion in oil.
  2. Add corned beef and stir until a little cooked, probably five minutes or so.
  3. Add sayote and let simmer until sayote is a little transparent.
  4. Serve with brown rice.
