Comfort food – corned beef hash

A classic combination โ€“ fried potatoes, onion, corned beef and Worchester sauce.ย  There is something comforting about corned beef hash; itโ€™s a proper winter filler.



500g/1lb 2oz potatoes, peeled and cut into similar-sized pieces

2 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, finely sliced

1 tin corned beef, diced

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper to season


  • Cook the washed, peeled, chopped potatoes in a saucepan of salted boiling water for approximately 8-10 minutes, then drain.
  • Heat one tablespoon of the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan. Cook the onion for 3-4 mins over a medium heat until softened and turning golden-brown.
  • Add the other tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, then add in the potatoes and corned beef, crushing them roughly with the back of a spatula or fork. Spread them out so that they cover the base of the pan and leave to cook for 5 minutes, or until a golden crust is beginning to form on the base. Turn the mixture over.
  • Add the Worchester sauce and cook for another five minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper.

Serve the corned beef hash with baked beans or even a fried egg and enjoy.


Simple, tasty and very satisfying.

Keep smiling ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Scraps says:

    Mmmm, I adore corned beef hash. I made some not too long ago and was shocked that Todd couldn’t remember having it before! To switch things up I will use sweet potatoes or do a mix of potatoes and turnips or rutabaga. It’s delicious either way.
