How to Make Corned Beef Hash

Wondering how to make corned beef hash? It's easy. Just sauté some onions, add chopped boiled potatoes and chopped cooked corned beef, and let them sizzle in the pan until browned and crispy at the edges. So good!

Add A Few Eggs

You can't have corned beef hash without a few eggs, right? You can add eggs in two ways:

  1. Fry or poach a few eggs in a separate pan and serve them alongside your hash.
  2. Make a few nests in your pan of corn beef and crack the eggs into them. Cover the pan for a few minutes until the whites are set, and then serve the eggs and the hash together.

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 cups chopped cooked potatoes, preferably Yukon gold

  3. Cook until browned, then flip:

    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.

  4. Stir in parsley, black pepper to serve:

    Remove from heat, stir in chopped parsley. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper, and add salt to taste.

    Serve with fried or poached eggs for breakfast.
