Corned Beef Hash

Leverage St. Patrick's Day as a great excuse to make this rich, salty and delicious breakfast for yourself and your closest friends & family. It will almost certainly bring you good luck.

We’ve given history lessons in the past on holidays and the importance and story behind traditional dishes because we love to give you a little context when you, hopefully, are cooking our recipes for your guests. Also, we just love a good story. With St. Patrick’s Day coming tomorrow, we’ll be skipping out on any history lesson. Why? Well, to be honest, we didn’t have time.

Between three year old birthdays, snotty noses and sleepless nights our definition of celebrating the traditional holiday will be to make sure our kidos are wearing a spot of green before they leave for pre-school.

Most likely, at the request of our family members, we will be cooking up some version of corned beef. And the only reason we are giving in is simple. It. Is. Easy. Corned beef almost always comes prepared with seasoning and if you’re really unmotivated to cook you can even buy it fully prepared at the deli counter. Either way, you’ll most likely have some left overs. Which brings us to another easy dish. A hash. The perfect breakfast (or lunch or dinner) dish that marries potatoes with whatever leftovers you might have, this time being corned beef. Throw a fried egg on top and you’ll have some happy eaters.

We won’t accept that our days of carefully planning out a holiday are over, they are just on hold. And we will still be celebrating, it just will look a little different. A little more simple. Tomorrow we’ll wake up and hope for a little “luck of the Irish”. We’ll anticipate our our day to be meaningful and significant, hopefully even fun. But, truthfully, it isn’t luck that allows us to celebrate with the one’s we love. We’re blessed.

Corned Beef Hash

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 30 min
  • Total Time: 40 min

Ingredients

  • 2 Russet potatoes, 1/2 inch diced
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Shallots, minced
  • 1/2 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 2 cups Cooked corned beef, diced
  • 1 cup Cream
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4 slices Crusty bread, optional

Method

  1. Place a 10-inch nonstick sauté or cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Heat the olive oil and add diced potatoes.
  2. Sauté for 15 minutes until potatoes begin to brown slightly and begin to become tender.
  3. Add the shallots and brussels sprouts sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Add corned beef, sauté for 3 minutes longer.
  5. Stir in cream, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated and the cream has thickened enough to bring the hash together (about 5 minutes).
  6. In a separate sauté pan, fry the eggs in melted butter over medium heat.
  7. Toast bread and cook eggs to desired doneness.
  8. Spoon hash onto plates and serve topped with egg and toast on the side.
