Ingredients

Let's start with the list of ingredients you will need for our absolutely delicious recipe.

  • 300 grams Potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Onion diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika

While certain ingredients require no explanation, I will provide more specific advice and appropriate alternatives below.

Potatoes

While we have a particular fondness for the humble white potato in our recipes, it's important to remember that this dish is versatile and can certainly accommodate other potato varieties.

Whether you opt for russet, red or sweet potatoes, each brings unique flavour and texture to the table.

For those seeking a convenient option, tinned potatoes are an excellent choice. As they're already cooked, they simply need to be diced before adding them to your recipe, saving you a step in the preparation process.

Corned Beef

You can buy canned corned beef in all supermarkets in the UK. It comes pre-cooked and ready to eat straight from the can/tin.

However, we believe that frying corn beef enhances its flavour significantly, making it even more delicious.

Do not be confused with home-cooked or deli counter corned beef this will not give the same results!

Eggs

Just a quick mention about the eggs used in this recipe, when they are cooked in the oven at the end they will cook with a firm yolk.

If you prefer a soft yolk I suggest you cook fried eggs, whilst the corned beef hash is cooking in the oven.

Optional Extras

Why not get creative with your corned beef hash? Explore the possibilities of adding fresh sliced chillies, garlic powder, a medley of mixed herbs, or even a splash of hot sauce for an extra kick of flavour. The choice is yours to elevate this classic dish to new levels of deliciousness!

Equipment

Let us list the equipment needed.

When it comes to cooking corned beef hash a good knife is essential for chopping your onions and potatoes, while a sturdy spatula will help you flip and stir your ingredients without them sticking to the pan.

Now, let's talk about the star of this recipe - our versatile cast iron pan. It can seamlessly transition from hob to oven, making it perfect for cooking dishes like corned beef hash, which require hob frying and oven baking.

Preparation

Start by preheating your oven to 200℃ fan / 220°C / 425℉ / Gas Mark 7 . While it's heating up, peel and dice your potatoes. If you're using canned potatoes, you can skip this step.

Next, cut your canned corned beef into cubes. Don't worry too much about perfecting the cubes – they'll break apart while cooking. Set your cubed potatoes and corned beef aside for now.

Crush, dice, or mince the garlic and dice the onion.

Boil

Place the diced potatoes into a pan of boiling water to cook, they should take about 7 minutes. Drain and allow the boiled potatoes to air dry.

Fry

Gently fry the onion in the oil until it's soft. This should take around 5 minutes.

If you want to store leftover corned beef hash for a longer period, you can freeze it. Divide the hash into individual portions, and place them in freezer containers. The hash will freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost before reheating.

Reheating

When reheating the hash, use either a microwave to reheat until warmed through.

Or use a pan or skillet on the hob. You might want to add a little bit of oil to prevent it from sticking and to help it regain some crispiness.

History of Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef Hash dates back to the 14th Century in the UK, but it really kicked off as a good storecupboard meal during World War II.

Food was rationed, making it hard to find meat. So, canned corned beef became a very handy source of protein.
