What is corned beef hash?

The term “hash” is often used to describe a dish made with chopped potatoes, onions and meat. In this case, the meat is corned beef, thus you get Corned Beef Hash. It’s a pretty easy, straight forward recipe.

The ingredients you’ll need:

BUTTER/OIL: To fry the hash in.

CORNED BEEF: You’ll need two cups of leftover corned beef diced small. Because you want it diced, thinly slices from the deli won’t work for this recipe.

RUSSET POTATOES: Peeled and diced.

ONION: Yellow or white onion work best in this recipe. Diced to the same size as the corned beef and potatoes.

GREEN ONION: Adds fresh onion flavor and a pop of color.

SALT/PEPPER/GARLIC POWDER: Keep in mind that corned beef is pretty salty. Wait until the very end to see if the final dish needs salt.

EGGS: Optional if you want to make this a main dish to serve at breakfast.

How to make corned beef hash:

Hashes are super easy to make, and this corned beef hash recipe is no different. Just follow these step by step instructions and you’ll be on your way!

STEP #1: Dice the potatoes, onions and corned beef into similarly sized pieces.

STEP #2: Heat olive oil in butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once butter melts add potatoes and cook 5 minutes without stirring.

STEP #3: Add in onions, garlic powder and pepper. Stir. Cover and cook for 2 – 3 minutes.

STEP #4: Uncover add corned beef and cook until the corned beef is warmed through. Add in green onions and season to taste with salt and pepper.

OPTIONAL: In a non-stick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Once melted add egg. Allow to cook until the egg whites are set. Spoon hash onto a plate, top with fried egg and serve.

Variations:

One of the great things about “hash” recipes is that the variations are essentially endless. You can use different potatoes: yukon gold, red or even sweet potatoes. You can add in some diced bell pepper. The most important thing is to make sure everything is about the same size. Other than that, it’s up to you!

Notes

You can leave the peel on the potatoes if you prefer. 
Allowing the potatoes to cook untouched for 5 minutes helps them to get crispy. I also like to use a well seasoned cast iron skillet for this. It helps get a great crust on the potatoes.
