I have two different ways of making this homemade corned beef hash recipe. The traditional way which is a great hearty breakfast as well as a creamy version that my family loves! Both are great leftover corned beef recipes.
So I love this stuff! I could make it any time of year really. Occasionally we have leftovers so I’ve always wanted to make a homemade corned beef hash recipe this year, it was so good! I made it two ways because I was curious to see what it would taste like with some creaminess and quite frankly I prefer the second version you see here. The traditional method is delish too. Try them both! (originally published 1/18)
Now that you have leftovers it’s time to make this homemade corned beef hash recipe!
It is like nothing else you’ve had before. This hunk of meat has a tremendous amount of flavor with little to no effort on your part. It is already seasoned and comes with a little seasoning packet you just sprinkle on top. Everything else beyond that is just extra.
Really the only difference between my two homemade corned beef and hash recipes is that I added 1/2 c. of sour cream to the second one.
This gave it a creaminess and bit of added flavor, but it is totally up to you.
- If you’re curious I encourage you to make the one below. Then set aside a bowl and add just a bit of sour cream to it and see if you prefer that one. If so, then make that version the next go around. 😉
There are really very few ingredients to it which I love. I had most of them at home other than a bag of potatoes which I was out of and had to run to the store for.
Quite inexpensive as well which I love and great for breakfast, brunch, or dinner as I had it. 😉
I go heavier on the onions and garlic because I just feel it gives it an extra helping of flavor. Adjust as you’d like. Two cups of diced corned beef were left over so that is what I used. I made the ratio about 50/50 meat & potatoes. That is up to you too.
Here are a few tips to follow when making this homemade corned beef hash recipe
- Tastes great cooked in a cast iron pan if you have one (this is the one I have)
- You can use a nonstick skillet or frying pan too. Cast iron is just my preference.
- Dice your potatoes rather small so they can soften in a shorter amount of time
- Season throughout the cooking process, tasting as you go until you achieve the levels you love
- Slow and steady is the key, allow to simmer on low for best results
Here is what you will need to make these homemade corned beef hash recipe ideas
- Cast iron skillet – my preference
- Leftover diced corned beef
- Garlic, minced
- Yellow potatoes, diced fine
- Sour cream, if making creamy version
- Season with salt and pepper when it’s done
- Possibile additions
- Fried egg
Either way you make it this is a great recipe we all loved.
Homemade Corned Beef Hash Recipe
- Melt your butter in your pan on low heat, add diced onions and saute until onions soften.
- Add minced garlic and finely diced potatoes. Mix
- Add cubed leftover corned beef, mix in seasonings (I use 1/4 tsp salt and when done test to see if I want another 1/4 tsp).
- Cover your pan that is on low/med. heat.
- Stir every 3 minutes to bring bottom potato mixture to top and mix.
- Continue with covering it again, stirring for 12-15 minutes total or until your potatoes are softened to the texture you desire. If you want to make the creamy corned beef hash version add your sour cream once your potatoes are softened, fold in, and keep on low for 3-4 minutes or just until heated.
- Top with diced green onions and serve!
