Corned Beef Hash Ingredients?
Ingredients needed to make a corned beef hash. You will need an onion, garlic, paprika, worcestershire sauce, a tin of corned beef, new potatoes (or tinned potatoes), onions, and eggs.
Canned corned beef is cooked and ready to eat straight from the can. However, we think it tastes so much better when fried.
How to cook?
We will guide you through how to cook corned beef hash with our step by step recipe card. Check out the video below to see how easy it is and continue reading for more help.
First things first, if using new potatoes, cube them and steam or parboil them for 7 minutes. To save time use a can of potatoes, which will not need parboiling first.
In this case, we add garlic and paprika to the fried onions, followed by Worcestershire sauce.
Try experimenting with other flavourings instead. Such as fresh sliced chillies, mixed herbs or hot sauce?
Add par-cooked potatoes and a generous amount of salt & pepper into the dish
Mix potatoes and onions together, allowing to fry for a few minutes, before adding the tin of corned beef in.
Open the can of corned beef and cut into rough cubes. It is soft and crumbly so don't worry too much about neatness!
Use the back of a spatula to flatten the corned beef and potatoes together, after 6-8 minutes turn over in sections and flatten with the spatula again. Cook for a further 6-8 minutes.
When it comes to cooking the egg in a corned beef hash, you have two options, depending on if you like a runny or firm yolk? See below and cook to your prefered method.
Firm egg yolk
Make 4 well holes in the meat & potatoes, and crack an egg in each hole.
Place in the oven for 10 minutes to finish browning off the corned beef hash and to cook the egg.
All done perfectly cooked with a firm yolk and ready to serve!
Runny yolk egg
If you prefer egg with a runny yolk, you are better off frying your egg in a frying pan or poaching.
Once the corned beef hash is cooked, serve a fried egg up on top of the corned beef hash.
Wondering what to serve with corned beef hash? Well, this one-pot dish is a meal on its own. But if you wanted to make it feed more people, trying serving with baked beans.
Or have corned beef hash with some green vegetables, like cabbage, peas or broccoli?
A delicious quick British family meal enjoyed by the whole all, including the kids.

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.
