Preparation

Creating the perfect dish

Finely chop the onion and garlic, when you have chopped the garlic crush it into a paste under the knife blade.

Heat the olive oil in a wok over a medium to high heat for a minute then add the onion, garlic and dark soya sauce then fry for 2 minutes stiring to ensure even cooking.

( If you want add the button mushrooms whole sliced or halved you can at this stage)

Reduce to a medium heat and add the red wine and allow to simmer for 5 minutes occasionally stiring.

Add the thick beef stock and stir for 1 minute.

Cut all the corned beef into small cubes and add stiring so the cubes disintergrate.

( add peas now if you want)

Stir the mix and allow to simmer for 10 minutes, the contents should reduce becoming slightly thicker.

Add the marmite, stock cube and pepper to taste and stir in well allowing a further two minutes of simmering.

Remove from heat and pour or spoon into an oven dish filling it evenly to about half full then place in the fridge.

Boil the peeled potatoes for ten minutes or until soft, drain and mash, add pepper, milk and butter to taste.

Use the blender to make breadcrumbs with the two slices of bread ( or buy ready made breadcrumbs) then grate the same quantity of cheese into the breadcrumbs mixing them well.

Take the dish from the fridge, it should now be cool and the mixture reasonably firm to the touch. Spread the mash potato over the top covering all the meat, leave a few milimetres from the top, use a fork and lightly score across the surface of the potato.

Pour the breadcrumb cheese mix on top and spread evenly covering all of the potato.

Your Corned beef hash is now prepared and ready to be heated and enjoyed.

When ready put in a hot oven for 20 minutes, everything heats up and the topping becomes crispy and cheesy, serve with fresh vegetables for a delicious and filling meal

ENJOY

      Clearly done lens for the cooking challenge. Sounds scrumptious. I'm wondering if one of those text list modules that lets you list the steps might make the directions section even easier to follow. Either way, the ending sounds like it pays off!
