Corned Beef Hash with a Twist
This corned beef hash recipe is fantastic and it is versatile enough to be breakfast, brunch, lunch, or just a comfort food snack if you are in the mood for it. The twist is the cream in the recipe and even though that might sound like an odd ingredient for corned beef hash it totally transforms it from good to great, so give this recipe a try and this might be how you make your corned beef hash from now on.
As well as the potatoes and corned beef you will need butter and cream to add a luxurious mouth feel, onion and bell pepper to add nutrients, color and crunch, and some eggs if you wish to garnish your corned beef hash with fried eggs (and that really finishes the dish off beautifully!)
Once the potatoes have been cooked to just tender, you need to drain them well. While the last drops are draining off, you can pulse the corned beef in your food processor, not for long, just until it is chopped coarsely.
Saute the veggies then add the potatoes, then cook for a while. Add the meat and some salt and pepper, then add the cream and cook it well.
Ultimate Corned Beef Hash: The Addition of Eggs
The next step is the eggs and you have a choice here. You can either fry them in oil and/or butter, then put one on top of each serving of corned beef hash, or you can make 4 holes in your hash and break an egg into each one, then keep cooking until the eggs are done. Yummy!
Something else you can consider is serving scrambled or poached eggs on the side with the corned beef hash. It’s your dish so it is up to you.
