Corned Beef Hash




15 min



I love corned beef hash. It’s a really easy recipe to put together – especially if you have any left over cooked potato in the fridge. I have added some carrot to this version, but you can use any veg in it, or just make it “old-school” style with just potato and onion. My favourite way of eating this is with an egg on top, but it really isn’t neccesary.


  • 1 tin corned beef cut into 1cm chunks
  • 1/2 onion (can be white, red or I have used spring onions before)
  • 1/2 carrot (or any other vegetables)
  • 250g cooked potato (Can be mashed, or cut up leftover roast, baked or boiled)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 dessert spoon vegetable oil


  1. Pour the oil into a frying pan set over a medium heat and add the onions, carrots and a pinch of salt.
  2. Allow to fry until they just start to brown a little, then add the diced corned beef and the potato.
  3. Continue to cook over a medium heat whilst crushing everything together with the back of a fork. It will take 6 – 8 minutes to cook. ( I like to let mine carry on cooking for a couple of minutes after this, undisturbed, to create some crispy edges.)
