Corned Beef Hash

OK – I promise this will be the last post that has anything to do with corned beef.  Because I used the last of my once-a-year brisket last night for hash.  Which means that I have nothing left to make until next year!  So let me just start by saying hash is probably one of the best inventions ever.  It’s just simply diced meat, potatoes, and any veggies.   You can kind of just throw anything into the pan and call it a hash.  I like mine with a sunny side up egg.  I like breaking the yolk and mixing it all together.  Because it doesn’t really matter what it looks like at that point since it’s all going to get mixed together in your tummy!

So I start all my hash recipes the same way.  With bacon.  Maybe I didn’t need it for corned beef hash, but there was something about making hash without bacon that I couldn’t do, so I started with bacon.  You can feel free to omit the bacon, and actually, feel free to change any or all of the ingredients, because this is about making a hash that YOU want to eat.

Sautee the diced bacon in a frying pan.

Add chopped onions, peppers and garlic.

Now I had some left-over oven roasted fingerling potatoes from the previous night’s dinner that I chopped up for the hash.  They were pre-cooked, so I knew my hash wasn’t going to take a super long time.

Add diced corned beef.  Because the corned beef was salty and peppery, I didn’t add any other seasonings.

Saute for a bit and then serve – with a sunny side up egg if you’d like!

Recipe:

3 strips of bacon (diced)
1 medium onion
1 medium bell pepper (any color)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
about 2-3 large potatoes (diced) – I used pre-cooked fingerling potatoes
about 1.5 cups diced pre-cooked corned beef
4 eggs (sunny side up) – depending on how many people you are serving

In a frying pan over medium heat, saute the bacon.  Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic.  Sautee until vegetables become translucent.  Add potatoes.  If using pre-cooked, cooking time will be less.  If using raw potatoes, cook longer until the potatoes are cooked through.  Add corned beef and cook for a few more minutes until corned beef is heated through.  Serve with a sunny side up egg.

Enjoy!
