Easy Corned Beef Hash Recipe a Road Trip Classic
Half of the fun of going on a road trip, apart from the needed change of scenery and wildlife spotting, is the food you encounter along the way. Corned beef hash dates back decades. It originated in England, but American corned beef hash originated in the New England states as a way to use up the boiled dinner from St Patrick’s Day. It stands to reason, doesn’t it? Diners near and far will typically have it on the menu, and it’s one of those dishes that can take you from breakfast to breakfast for dinner.
How to Make the Best Corned Beef Hash Recipe
- Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Corned Beef Hash: Corned beef, golden potatoes, green onions, large eggs (optional), butter, vegetable oil, green chiles, garlic salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes.
- Kitchen tools you’ll need: Large cast iron skillet or similar 12 inch skillet, sharp knife and chopping board, vegetable peeler, measuring cups and spoons.
- I add eggs to this hash to make it a one dish meal. This is completely optional, you can enjoy the eggs on the side, if desired.
- If you don’t want to put the skillet into the oven, you could easily adapt this recipe to stovetop cooking only.
- You can use leftover cooked corned beef or deli corned beef for this recipe.
- I love the buttery flavor and texture of golden potatoes. That said, you can certainly use russet or white potatoes if that’s your pleasure. Each variety of potatoes cooks differently, so adjust cooking time based on the potato you choose to use. Think fork tender and you’ll be good to go.
- You can cube the potatoes as finely as you like, Again, smaller cubes will take less time to cook and larger will take longer.
- Eggs complete this meal and I highly recommend you add them. However, as mentioned above, it’s completely optional should you prefer to enjoy them on the side.
- Serve this hash with a big pan of hot Fluffy Southern Buttermilk Biscuits.
- Store cooked Corned Beef Hash chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
How to Reheat Corned Beef Hash
The beauty of this kind of skillet recipe is that it can be reheated in a couple of ways. You can reheat hash in single servings in the microwave or toss it into a non stick skillet and reheat it on the stovetop over medium heat. It’s very forgiving and can be done either way with great success.
