Crispy chunks of savory corned beef. Golden fried potatoes. Savory bits of onion and cabbage colliding with a nice runny fried egg. Corned Beef Hash is breakfast the way it should be – totally awesome!
I don’t mean to wax eloquent. This is just one of the meals that I truly love. To be fair I never met a potato I didn’t like and any potato that gets fried before it hits my plate is my best friend for the five seconds or so it exists before consumption.
Sometimes Jonathan asks me to make up corned beef dinner just to use it to make hash. It is a totally legitimate use of corned beef! Most people just use up the leftovers from dinner.
Hash is not something that requires measurement. You could throw everything you have leftover into the mix and get something yummy. The proportions in this recipe just reflect my preferences for quantities of each ingredient. Leftover hash can always be reheated on the stovetop and will stay nice and crispy.
Pro Tip: To cook the hash faster, microwave the beef, cabbage, and potatoes gently until they are just warm. Using preheated ingredients makes them faster and easier to fry up into hash.

I love my Caphalon Nonstick pans and use them almost every day. They are total workhorse pans and are not expensive to buy.
