Homemade Corned Beef Hash From Grandma's Kitchen!

Updated on March 17, 2011

What To Do With Leftover Corned Beef?

Homemade corned beef hash is the perfect and most delicious solution to leftover corned beef! If you are not a fan of corned beef sandwiches, make some homemade corned beef hash. It takes only a few ingredients, and served with eggs on top, can be a great dinner or breakfast. This recipe for corned beef hash is a winner! i had some leftover corned beef and decided to cook it up. This is what I came up with! It is easy, quick and pretty tasty!

  • 4 Tablespoons of canola oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups of peeled and diced potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of worcesteshire sauce
  • 1/3 cup of ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter
  • enough eggs for 4 people (allow at least one egg per person)

The secret to this is that the corned beef, onions and potatoes are all diced small and the pieces are the same size. It makes the ingredients cook evenly and the finished product is visually appealing. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Drop in the onions and garlic, with a little bit of salt and the red pepper flakes. Saute until the onions are tender, then add the corned beef. Allow it to crisp up a little and then add the potatoes, remaining salt, the worcesteshire sauce and the ketchup. Mix this all together and allow it to cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 10 minutes, pour this into a sprayed 2 quart casserole dish or 9 X 13 inch pan. Dot the top with butter and place it into a 375 degree oven. After about 25 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle the top with a little bit of ground, black pepper. Crack each egg carefully (try not to break the yolks) over an area of the top with enough space between the eggs to signify a serving. If anyone needs two eggs, place them close together. Sprinkle a little bit of salt over the eggs and return the pan to the oven for about 10 minutes. Serve this for dinner with a green salad and some toasted and buttered english muffins. Put some ketchup on the table for those who like ketchup on their eggs.

This is an easy recipe and it may even be better than the corned beef, cabbage and smashed potatoes that you traditionally serve on St. Patrick's Day!

Increasing The Recipe...

The above recipe will serve 4 people. If you want to feed more than 4, I suggest increasing the amount of some ingredients, in equal proportions. Just remember, when you are cooking, just use your judgment. Measurements in cooking do not ever have to be exact. For baking, yes, but not cooking. For example, if I want to make this for 6, I would just increase the amount of corned beef and potatoes, add a little extra salt and pepper, and be done with it. Just remember that cooking should be fun!

    Dear Fay,

    I hope you like it! It was easy and I loved it-again, try poaching the eggs or frying them- think it would be better that way!

    Hi, Nan! This was the first time I have ever made homemade corned beef hash, and I was happily surprised! I loved it! Anyone that makes it from scratch (no cans, please!)is a friend of mine! Make the recipe your own! After making it for years, you probably add other things to it that I didn't even think about!

    Let me know how you like it! Next time, I may just poach the eggs, or fry them to put over the top. I lost alot of the white, because it went down into the hash!

    Your recipe sounds delicious. I am going to try your way of cooking instead of putting mine in a crockpot.
