How to Make Corned Beef Hash

Our step-by-step video guide will walk you through the process, ensuring a flawless dish every time. If you’re feeling confident, you can jump straight into the recipe card.


Let’s start with the list of ingredients you’ll need for this absolutely delicious recipe.


We have a special fondness for the humble white potato, but feel free to experiment with different varieties. Russet, red, or sweet potatoes all bring unique flavors and textures to the table. If convenience is your priority, tinned potatoes are an excellent choice.

Corned Beef

Canned corned beef is readily available in supermarkets. While it’s delicious straight from the can, frying it takes the flavor to a whole new level. Just make sure not to confuse it with home-cooked or deli counter corned beef.

When cooked in the oven, the eggs in this recipe will have a firm yolk. If you prefer a soft yolk, you can cook fried eggs separately while the corned beef hash is in the oven.

Optional Extras

Why not get creative and elevate your corned beef hash? Fresh sliced chillies, garlic powder, mixed herbs, or a splash of hot sauce can take this classic dish to new levels of deliciousness.


To make the perfect corned beef hash, you’ll need a few essential tools. A good knife for chopping onions and potatoes is a must, and a sturdy spatula will help you flip and stir your ingredients. Our star player is the versatile cast iron pan, which seamlessly transitions from hob to oven. Don’t worry if you don’t have one; any oven-friendly pan will do the job.


We’ll guide you through each step of making this mouthwatering dish.


Preheat your oven and dice your potatoes. If you’re using canned potatoes, you can skip this step. Cube your canned corned beef, crush or dice some garlic, and dice the onion.


Cook the diced potatoes in boiling water for about 7 minutes, then drain and let them air dry.


Heat some olive oil in a large, oven-safe pan and gently fry the onion until soft. Add the garlic, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce. Layer the cubed corned beef on top of the potato mixture and press it down with a spatula. Let it cook on low-medium heat for crispy potatoes.


Turn off the heat and make wells in the corned beef hash. Crack an egg into each well. If you prefer a runny yolk, you can serve with fried or poached eggs instead.

Storage and Reheating

Storing your leftover corned beef hash is a breeze. Simply let it cool, transfer it to an airtight container, and refrigerate for 3-4 days.

When reheating, use a microwave or a pan on the hob, adding a little oil to regain some crispiness.
