What Is Hash?
We’re talking food here people. Hash is typically a recipe consisting of chopped meat, potatoes and onions cooked up in a cast iron skillet. The name comes from a French word “hacher” meaning to chop as the ingredients in the dish usually are.
Hash is a leftover recipe of all kinds, not just corned beef. Leftover potatoes, cabbage, peppers or really any kind of vegetable can be thrown into a hash recipe. Proteins can include corned beef, of course, ham, pork, sausages and even chicken or turkey.
We often see hash made for breakfast but I”m telling you, you’re going to want to just make this Corned Beef Hash recipe for breakfast, lunch, brunch or even dinner. Our boys love corned beef hash with a runny fried egg on top and a dash or two of hot sauce!
How Do You Make Corned Beef Hash?
Hash is such an easy breakfast recipe to make with leftover corned beef. All you need to do is dice up your corned beef, grab a few potatoes, peppers and onions and a frying pan.
Because the potatoes in this recipe are diced pretty small, you don’t have to cook them ahead of time. They’ll cook and crisp up in the pan really nicely. BUT if you have leftover, cooked potatoes just throw them in after the peppers are cooked.
So basically everything goes into the skillet and cooks up until a nice crust forms on the bottom. That crispy crust is coveted at my house, so make sure not to skip that step!
What If I Don’t Have Leftover Corned Beef?
No problem! Head to your local grocery store and hit up the deli counter. Ask them to slice you a few thick slices of corned beef, about 3/4 of a pound, and then you can take that home and dice it up for this hash recipe!
What Other Ingredients Can I Add To This Corned Beef Hash Recipe?
There’s so many things that you can add to hash, the list is pretty long. You can even swap out the corned beef for other meats like leftover steak, chicken or turkey.
- Fresh or frozen spinach

How Do You Serve Corned Beef Hash?
Well if it makes it to a plate, you can eat it as is or add a delicious, runny fried egg to the top. When the hash is just about ready, getting that crispy crust on the bottom, you can fry up however many eggs you like in another skillet.
This hash recipe serves about 6 people but if you’re like my boys you’ll definitely want more than 1 lonely fried egg to top off your hash.
