Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef Hash

Inspiration: Why not share another breakfast hash recipe? We’ve been enjoying having breakfast meals for dinner lately (see last week’s chorizo and sweet potato hash). Having breakfast for dinner is nice because night time provides a little more flexibility to make a breakfast that I normally wouldn’t make on an average weekday morning. Plus, Brandon loves anything and everything corned beef (….I think he could eat a reuben every day and be a happy man).

What We Loved: There’s something awesome about throwing all of your ingredients in a pan, sauteeing them up, and serving them in a big pile on your plate. It’s not very beautiful (to say the least), but it really is so comforting and tasty. This corned beef hash is a fairly standard recipe – just some nicely browned bacon, onions, corned beef, and potatoes with a good bunch of seasoning. It’s a great combination of rich and simple flavors, and the best part is the nice brown crust that you get on the pieces of potatoes and corned beef as you let it cook away in the pan.

Tips: I served this topped with sliced avocado, which was lovely, but I also think that a poached or sunny-side up egg would be a fantastic topping. Goat cheese would also be nice. A colorful topping works well – corned beef hash is not pretty.

Source: Original Recipe

5-6 slices bacon, diced
About 1 lb leftover cooked corned beef, finely diced
1 small onion, diced
1 large russet potato, grated
Kosher salt and black pepper
Garlic powder
1 avocado, sliced or diced

1. Heat a nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Add the bacon, and cook until crisp. Remove the bacon to a paper-towel lined plate, and set aside.

2. Add the diced corned beef, grated potato, and onion to the pan. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir to combine.

3. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are softened and everything is beginning to get nice and browned, about 15 minutes.

4. Serve topped with sliced or diced avocado.

  1. Here in New Zealand, corned beef either comes as a cabbage sized, raw, ball of meat or cooked and in a tin.

    I’m never quite sure which is being referred to when I read about corned beef online. Or does it come in a different variation entirely?

    We don’t eat potatoes but cauli-rice works well in this recipe as well. Top with a couple of fried eggs. Nice.

    • Yes, cauli-rice sounds awesome, too! My food processor is currently broken, so I haven’t been able to have that for a while. Sounds delicious in this recipe.

  3. Hmmmm. Bacon and corned beef together sounds amazing! I’ve always sauteed my onions for regular beef hash in bacon grease or added bacon, but I’ve never thought to do it with CORNED beef. I’LL HAVE TO TRY THIS!

    • Thanks! There aren’t a whole lot of recipes that aren’t made better by throwing bacon in first, right? I hope that you like it if you give it a try.
