Corned Beef Hash

Corned beef hash has to be one of my very favorite breakfasts and amazingly enough, we have only attempted to make it at home once before (using deli counter corned beef). It was good but nothing like the ease and flavor of this recipe. Of course I do think the fact that we used our own homemade corned beef played a huge part in the incredible flavor, but this could be made with deli corned beef too and would be quite tasty. I like the ease of the recipe and the simple ingredients. If you have a husband who makes it for you then it's even easier (thanks honey!). Adapted lightly from Simply Recipes.


3 T unsalted butter
1 cup yellow onion, diced
2-3 cups cooked corned beef, diced
2-3 cups cooked Yukon gold potatoes, diced (boil the potatoes in their skins and then peel them)
  • Heat butter in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) on medium heat. Add the onion and cook a few minutes, until translucent.
  • Mix in the chopped corned beef and potatoes. Spread out evenly over the pan. Increase the heat to high or medium high and press down on the mixture with a metal spatula.
  • Do not stir the potatoes and corned beef, but let them brown. If you hear them sizzling, this is good. Use a metal spatula to peek underneath and see if they are browning. If nicely browned, use the spatula to flip sections over in the pan so that they brown on the other side. Press down again with the spatula. If there is too much sticking, you can add a little more butter to the pan. Continue to cook in this manner until the potatoes and the corned beef are nicely browned.
  • Serve with poached (or fried) eggs for breakfast.
