This corned beef hash takes advantage of the leftovers from a corned beef and cabbage dinner, and it is extremely versatile. You can leave the cabbage and carrots out, and use more potato and beef, or add extra cabbage with less potato. This hash would also be delicious with leftover roast beef, ham, or roast pork. And if you're following a low-carb diet, replace the potatoes with chopped cauliflower or cauliflower "rice." See more in the expert tips below the recipe.

Hash is, by definition, a dish of cooked chopped meat, usually with potatoes. Onions and bell peppers are often included in the hash, which is frequently found on breakfast menus.

The dish makes a delicious meal with baked beans, or serve the hash with eggs in the morning for breakfast. This is an excellent choice if you're looking for an easy, basic recipe for corned beef hash.

  • If you have leftover rutabaga, parsnip, or turnip from a corned beef meal, feel free to dice it and add to the hash.

Recipe Variations

  • Use chopped cooked roast beef, ham, or pork in the recipe instead of corned beef.
  • Replace part of the potatoes with diced cooked sweet potatoes.
  • Add 1 cup of cooked corn kernels.
  • Add 1 chopped bell pepper.
  • Looking for a low-carb option? Omit the potatoes. Chop a head of cauliflower in a food processor or grate with a box grater to make rice-sized pieces. Add the cauliflower to the sautéed onions and garlic. Proceed with the recipe.

How did it get to be called corned beef?

The term corned beef comes from the corn kernel-sized salt crystals that were used to cure the brisket.
