Variations Ideas

  • Potatoes – Yukon Gold Potatoes can be used in this recipe instead of Russet potatoes.
  • Brisket – You can also make this recipe with diced ham or add in bacon.
  • Vegetables – This hash even better by adding in vegetables of your choice. Cabbage, Bell peppers or slice mushrooms are always a great option.
  • Seasoning – To add a hint of spice to the flavor, add in a ¼ tsp of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. We love the spicy tastes that it gives the hash.

Step by Step Instructions

Boiling diced potatoes in a large pot

Step 1 – Peel and dice the potatoes into bite size pieces.  Boil the diced potatoes until they are fork tender (7-11 minutes).  Drain off the excess water. 

Skillet with melted butter

Step 2 – Add half of the butter to a large skillet and melt over medium high heat. 

Adding the vegetables to the skillet with the seasoning

Step 3 – Add in the onions, potatoes, salt and pepper.  Sauté for 8-10 minutes until the onions are soft and the potatoes start to brown.  Toss regularly to make sure the potatoes brown on all the sides.  

Adding in the corned beef and butter to the skillet with the vegetables

Step 4 – Add in the corned beef, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce and remaining butter.  Heat until the butter is melted and stir to combine all the ingredients and make sure that all the ingredients are in an even layer in the pan. Gently press the mixture down into the pan with a spatula.   

  • Step 5 – Cook the mixture without turning for 3-4 minutes to allow the brown and form a nice crust on the ingredients.  
  • Step 6 – Once browned, turn the ingredients over and brown on the other side for 3-4 minutes until the other side is also browned.  Watch closely during the time and if the hash is getting too browned, add more butter if needed.  
  • Step 7 – Serve warm topped with fresh parsley and enjoy!  

Recipe Tips

  • Skillet – You can use any type of skillet that you prefer. But we recommend using a cast iron skillet for the flavor and texture that it gives the ingredients.
  • Preparing Vegetables – When cutting the vegetables make sure to cut in bite size pieces. This helps to cook the vegetables evenly and about the same time.
  • Cooking time – Cooking time will vary you want to cook the mixture until everything is golden brown.
