Corned beef and cabbage is the St. Patrick’s Day staple. Growing up in an Irish family, this was always our tradition every St. Paddy’s Day. But what to do with the leftovers? You could eat it every day for the next three days or you could make corned beef hash. You should make corned beef hash.
Corned beef hash is the perfect Irish brunch entrée to serve up with an Irish coffee or Guinness. Crispy sauteed potatoes mixed with corned beef and topped with runny eggs. My mom is the corned beef expert. She taught me how to make this a few years ago and I’ve been making it ever since with my own personal spin.
We use eye of round corned beef. It’s leaner and doesn’t have a layer of fat around the outside like the alternate cuts. I combine leftover corned beef cut into small bite sized pieces along with chopped carrots and potatoes and fry in a skillet with onions, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. The best part is the baked egg topping. Once you’re done making the hash, simply break four eggs over the hash and bake for 10 minutes for perfectly gooey egg yolks.
I really love corned beef, but honestly I look forward to making hash EVERY year after Saint Paddy’s Day for than ANYTHING.Print
