St. Patty's Day has come and gone and all we are left with is a hangover and leftover corned beef. This is the perfect opportunity to create my favorite corned beef recipe - Homemade Corned Beef Hash. I personally prefer my corned beef shredded in the food processor with minimal ingredients (potatoes and onions). However, by definition, hash is a combination of finely chopped ingredients; so use any and all of your leftovers from the Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipe. The actual ingredients and measurements will vary depending on the leftovers you have. If you prefer a more rustic hash roughly chop the ingredients, rather than dicing.

the Formula for Corned Beef Hash

1 tablespoon vegetable oil or butter
1 small onion, diced fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
leftover potatoes (about 1 cup), diced fine
leftover corned beef (1-1 ½ lbs), shredded in food processor
salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste

the Procedure for Corned Beef Hash

1. Heat cast iron skillet over medium heat, add vegetable oil or butter to coat. Add onion and saute until soft. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds.
2. Add potatoes and corned beef, mix and allow to heat through.
3. Spread mixture to create an even layer in skillet and flatten using the bottom of another pan. You will want to use a pan that is just slightly smaller in diameter than the skillet and be sure to grease the bottom to prevent it from sticking.
4. Let the mixture cook (while being weighted) for about 10 minutes. The longer you let this sit without touching it the better. The objective is to create a nice golden crust without burning it. Think golden brown hashbrowns, this is the effect you are going for. Flip the hash mixture to cook the other side, another 7-10 minutes.
5. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with poached eggs, toast and your favorite hot sauce.

    Thanks for posting Angel. I had corned beef hash this weekend with a little bit of cinnamon sprinkled. It was delicious, I highly recommend it.

    That does sound good! Baked chicken that was prepared by sprinkling cinnamon and garlic on it before baking is also quite tasty!

    Wow, think we need to do some beer butt chicken with cinnamon! Thanks for the tip Angel!

    Roast some onions when you make the chicken, and sprinkle the onions with cinnamon too. It is surprisingly good. :-)

    My wife loves corned beef hash…I surprised her with this recipe ( including adding the cinnamon ) and she was blown away…now we have to have corned beef at least once a month so I can make her more of the hash…A bit of advise: make the hash low and slow; patience has it’s rewards…I love the tasty simplicity of the recipes you have here which allows even a klutz like me to put out meals my wife and kids rave about…Thanks, Larry
