WHAT IS CORNED BEEF HASH
Corned beef hash is a simple sauté of onions, corned beef and potatoes, that’s it. Corned beef hash is traditionally a French recipe since hash translates to “hacher,” which means chop. Of course, as you know a corned beef hash is a chopped-up mixture.
Regardless that it’s a classic French recipe, corned beef hash is really popular in Britain and Scotland. I’d also like to say that it is super popular in the US for breakfast and most often served up with fried eggs, but in this case I served’em up with jammy eggs.

While corned beef hash is delicious to eat by itself, it is just so amazing when served up with eggs, especially jammy eggs.
HOW TO MAKE CORNED BEEF HASH
Making corned beef hash only takes about 25 minutes. The key when making it, is taking the time to caramelize the onions and of course brown up the potatoes.
Start by pan roasting off some small diced yellow or sweet onions until they are browned and translucent. This part takes about 10 minutes, and you can definitely push it further to 20 minutes if you want to spend the time. Don’t worry though, because the onions will cook even more in this corned beef hash recipe when you cook everything else. Next add in your diced up, or chunky corned beef, along with the potatoes. I prefer to use Yukon potatoes. As a quick note I actually add in a bit of garlic as well.
From there you roast up everything over medium heat until the potatoes are browned tender, which takes about 12-15 minutes. Just like all of my recipes finish off this corned beef hash recipe with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, parsley, rosemary and chives!
CORNED BEEF HASH VEGETABLES: If you want you can certainly add more vegetables to the corned beef hash such as bell peppers, jalapeños, or small dice zucchini or squash to help change up this recipe to your desires.
