Talk about simple! Our EASY CORNED BEEF HASH recipe is just that, and everybody’s chatting about how delicious it is.

This is one of those classic recipes that will make your next weekend at the cottage even more memorable. There is one catch though – you’ll need to make our CORNED BEEF DINNER first. Why? Because the leftovers of corned beef and boiled potatoes are the main ingredients for this skillet recipe (not to mention our CORNED BEEF DINNER is also amazingly simple and you’ve just gotta try it).

Who’s ready to heat up a big skillet, melt some butter and get cooking? Time to make EASY CORNED BEEF HASH!

Ingredients for Easy Corned Beef Hash


Whether you’re boiling potatoes and chopping up a hunk of store-bought corned beef, or using leftovers as I described above, this recipe is all about simple. The remaining ingredients are all readily available and easy to prepare for the skillet. Set aside 10 minutes for the chopping and 15 minutes for sautéing, and you’ll have a delicious meal on the table in under 30.

Leftover corned beef cubed for the hash recipe


As mentioned, you can make corned beef from scratch by following THIS recipe. It’ll involve boiling a brined and spiced cut of beef for a period of time to create a tender and flavourful piece of meat. That said, if you’re pressed for time, head to the deli counter at your supermarket and pick up a piece of cooked corned beef. You can cube it up and use it for this recipe in the same way.

Chopped peppers for the hash recipe


Peppers are always used to make a classic corned beef hash. I love their texture as they soften in the skillet, but they also deliver a nice hit of sweetness to the mix too. Feel free to add different coloured bell peppers to your hash recipe to give the dish a visually pleasing pop of colour. You can also include a jalapeño for a hit of spicy heat too. Gimme that pepper love!


This is an excellent recipe to test out your wrist-flicking skillet skills – and no, I’m not joking. Because the entire dish comes together in this one skillet, you’ll have ample time to work on the motion of flicking your wrist so that the ingredients jump up from the pan, dance and mingle in the air before falling back into the pan. Trust me, years ago my wrist-flicking technique was laughably bad, but practice has made it perfect.

Easy Corned Beef Hash


I know those of you who usually skip the story and head to ingredients and instructions just did a u-turn. Well, hello there! Yes, there is mayonnaise in this hash recipe. Make sure to watch the VIDEO attached to this post – it’s a secret trick I discovered in a New York diner years ago.

We did a survey on this post asking readers how they like their EASY CORNED BEEF HASH. Virtually everyone wanted the same thing – a fried egg with oozy yolk and a side of toast. That’s how we like it too, so, happy to oblige. Melt some butter, fry up an egg and serve it next to our delicious hash.

As I mentioned at the outset, this meal is perfect for cottage weekends. Serve it with a side of toast smeared with a favourite jam like this APRICOT or STRAWBERRY JAM. We also love it with a FRUIT SALAD and a freshly squeezed juice like this ROOT 4.
