Beef with Young Corn


That was a quick Monday.

It was busy. I got up late and missed my planned “morning work-out”. It was all good because I was able to work out last Sunday before going to church.

There was chaos in my brain as I plan out the week’s menu, the household chores, and the backlogs from last Christmas! ARRGH! I should’ve done it last Sunday. But, you know, I feel like Sundays are made for church, and family day, and rest, and movie nights.

Sometimes, that’s the hassle when you’re a work-at-home-mom. It gets difficult to separate work from mommy duties, wifey duties, and household chores because they are all there in front of you… waiting which one you’ll take on first.

Ah, that’s the time when our ability to multitask comes in…. and before I know it, 80% of it is done. The 20% that’s left will be carried over the next day.

Inhale. Exhale.

Beef with Young Corn

This Beef with Young Corn is part of my Monday. It’s one of those little things that made it fantastic. peanutbutter loved it. Ykaie loved it too! I actually saved some for her baon to school today.

And you know what, I kinda broke my no rice diet and gave in.. but just a little. That rich, brown sauce is just too hard to resist.

Today, I woke up at my usual 3am. I thought about going back to bed but weighed myself instead. I was thinking I didn’t lose any weight this week with all that I was eating. I was surprised to find out that I am now down to 180lbs!

I lost three more pounds. Wow. That got me more inspired to work out this morning.

So here’s my progress so far…

Start Date: January 9, 2016
Current Date: January 26, 2016

  • Starting Weight: 185lbs
  • Current Weight: 180 lbs
  • Goal Weight: 130 lbs

Meanwhile, I suggest you make this for lunch or dinner. It’s so easy to make and it takes so little time to cook it. I guarantee your family will love it.

I used fresh young corn in making this but you can use canned if fresh is not available.

Happy start of the week.


Beef with Young Corn

  • Author: Peachy Adarne


  • 500g beef sirloin, tendons removed and cut into strips
  • 4 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp liquid seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 cups fresh young corn, cut in half (you can use canned if you can’t find fresh ones)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp chopped spring onions


  1. In a large bowl, combine beef sirloin, hoisin sauce, liquid seasoning, salt, and pepper. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. After 30 minutes, heat oil in a pan. Sauté garlic and onion until onion becomes translucent.
  3. Add beef mixture including marinade, if there’s any left. Continue sautéeing until beef becomes brown and cooked through. The marinade will form a super thick sauce so make sure you’re cooking this on medium heat or the sauce will evaporate.
  4. Add young corn and water. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Pour in cornstarch-water mixture, make sure it’s mixed well.
  6. Stir beef until sauce thickens. Simmer for a few seconds more.
  7. Garnish with chopped spring onions and serve with steaming hot rice.

  1. We worked at home for years, and it really gets hard to separate your work and your everyday life. It’s a juggling act, isn’t it? Anyway, great dish. So much flavor! Thanks.

  2. From a fellow work at home mom, I hear you! It’s always hard to separate work and home and so easy to get sidetracked! This meal looks delicious, and those little corn are so cute!

  3. This looks yummy and yes, when you work at home then it’s too easy to get sloppy about meal planning but at least my kids are grown & on their own so I don’t feel as guilty.

    1. Ang Sarap naman nito mommy.Fave ko din Ang Young corn..Try ko this recipe

  4. I often cook beef with broccoli and haven’t tried with the young corn. Might be the perfect time to serve beef with other variants – this young corn included.

    Thank you again for the inspiration.

  5. I also cook this at home but most of the time I used broccoli or other veggies, I seldom stock young corn at home kasi..

  6. That looks amazing! I’m a huge fan of dishes like this that feature young corn. It’s got such a delicious flavor and texture. Can’t wait to make this one!

  7. This dish has a lot going for it. Not only does it look delicious and have yummy ingredients but it’s also a one pot meal! Congrats on the weight loss.

  8. Thank you for sharing the delicious recipe. I think it’s wonderful that you are so health conscious when you have so much going on in your life. Best wishes with your schedule and workout routine. It sounds like you are doing a wonderful job balancing your life.

  9. This looks really good! My husband loves beef dishes but I don’t cook them as often as I should.

  10. Your beef with young corn looks so good and I could not have passed up the rice either. Congrats on your weight loss and you’re correct – it’s difficult to separate work and family life.

  11. Congrats on the 3lb loss, that is exciting. This beef and corn looks really good, just in time for my chore of meal planning. I’m tired of eating the same things all the time.

  12. This looks fabulous! I added it to my growing list of recipes. So, this is a good recipe for trying to lose weight? I’m in the process of trying to dump my weight and that would be great if it were :).

  13. I totally here ya! This recipe looks and sounds delicious. I will have to try it soon.

  14. Oh this is one of my favorite recipe and part of my menu. I usually put oyster sauce (low sodium) instead of hoisin and then button mushroom for additional vegetable. I use low fat beef for a healthier version.

  15. My son loves corn. So last Sunday, we ate chopseuy with young corn. I have him a spoonful of young corn with rice. To my surprise, he didn’t like it! haha! Ang sarap ng gawa mo sis!

  16. It’s ok to break the diet sometimes, we need cheat days too.
    Holding yourself too much makes you crave more…

    On your workout mommy peach, try to add weights so you sweat more.
    wear jacket as well and less salt on food, since salt makes our body stock more water. When you sweat a lot already, that’s the time it will burn the fats ^_^

  17. I love it. Super delicious. The good thing is it is easy to prepare.

  18. I like this recipe especially I love to eat baby corn ?.. I want to prepare this for my family especially during special occasions.i wish I will do it perfectly like you did.?
