Corned Beef Hash
Using leftover corned/salt beef.
Also very good with leftover gravy, so maybe mention as an option? If I do this, I add the gravy along with the ketchup etc. It takes a bit longer to cook as needs to dry out more, but it tastes really good.
600g floury potatoes, peeled and diced
1 tbsp oil or 15g dripping or butter
1 large onion, chopped
400g corned beef
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp Dijon mustard
A dash of Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
Put the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil then add salt. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, then drain.
Heat the oil, dripping or butter in a large frying pan. Add the onion and saute until softened and turning a golden brown. Add the potatoes and the corned beef. Press down into the pan and leave to cook for 5 minutes.
Mix the tomato ketchup and Dijon mustard with enough water to make it pourable, then pour over the corned beef and potato mixture. Add the parsley and season with pepper – be careful with salt as the corned beef is salty – then stir. The underside should have started to turn a deep golden brown.
Continue to cook, stirring and pressing down the mixture until it is all completely heated through, the potatoes are tender, and a lot of the mixture has taken on some colour.
Good served with fried eggs.
