This is basically corned beef out of the can. I am not sure why this is named carne norte (meat from the North) -
probably because after the war, this was available as relief package from the GIs coming from North America.
At anyrate, it is a comfort food for me - as this is such a treat - when I was growing up.
1 can of corned beef
1 medium onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 medium tomato (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a frying pan, sautee crushed garlic and sliced onion (and sliced tomato if you prefer).
When the onion slices turn transparent, add corned beef. Make sure to mash the beef before you
add otherwise you will be eating lumps.
That's it. This is always a nice breakfast meal with fried rice.
