Corned Beef Hash

March 14, 2012 by Ali

Of course after a rockin’ meal of corned beef, roasted cabbage, soda bread, and three¬†Bailey’s desserts, we of course had a fewwwww leftovers. :)

This was good news, though, because I was super stoked to make some corned beef hash! Yep. It’s not rocket science. Just leftover corned beef, hashbrowns, onions, and a few fun seasonings to make it super-spectacular.

And oh man. It was seriously good. I’m pretty sure that I justified eating the leftovers of the leftovers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So easy and delicious. Definitely a great way to continue with your St. Patrick’s Day feasting!

Corned Beef Hash

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 2-3 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups small-diced potatoes (I used Yukon gold)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium white or yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly-cracked black pepper
  • pinch of cayenne and dried thyme
  • 2-3 cups shredded or diced (cooked) corned beef
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Method

Fill a medium-sized pot halfway with water, and bring it to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil for 5 minutes until they are partially cooked. Drain and set aside.

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, and saute for 3 minutes. Add potatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne and thyme. Continue to saute for another 10-12 minutes, stirring every few minutes so that the potatoes can brown but not stick to the pan. When the potatoes are ready, add the corned beef and saute for an additional few minutes to warm the beef. Sprinkle or toss with chopped fresh parsley, and serve immediately.

Ali’s Tip:

For a shortcut on this, feel free to use frozen small hashbrowns instead of chopping your own potatoes.

  5. I learned a few weeks ago that to make boiled potatoes that still hold their firmness and shape well, put a little bit of vinegar in the boil water. Not much, just a teaspoon or two will do. They don’t taste funny, but do hold their shape and texture without getting mushy. Thought you might like to know that tip for a recipe like this.

  6. I’ve always wanted to make my own! My mom used to bake the canned stuff in custard cups and top it with a poached egg. I LOVED it growing up. Guess I know what I’m doing with my leftovers this weekend!
