Crispy hot potatoes and cabbage are combined with bites of tender, salty, corned beef to create the corned beef and cabbage hash of your dreams.
Corned Beef Hash with Cabbage
In my mind, there is no reason why corned beef isn’t available in the meat case all year round. It is such a seasonal thing around March but I think retailers are getting the hint.
I used to have to wait until March to find it in the store. This year I found it in January and I was quite excited about that discovery! I’m going to be watching for it to come on sale and stock up my freezer so we can enjoy corned beef dishes year around.
Recently, when I saw the leftover corned beef in the refrigerator, I imagined that a skillet of cabbage, corned beef, and red potatoes would be tasty. I didn’t realize this would be so delicious that I would be craving it the very next day.
My whole family enjoyed this meal and I can see making this dish a tradition each time I cook corned beef. That is, if I can stash enough leftovers to make it.
Corned Beef Hash with cabbage is a dish that works for any meal, any time of day. Our favorite is for breakfast.
Corned Beef and Potatoes
Diced potatoes are browned crispy in a little bit of butter or bacon grease. If you use red potatoes and dice them small they will fry up in about 10 minutes.
Once the potatoes are crispy, yet still tender, remove them from the heat and saute the onions for 2-3 minutes. As they start to soften add the cabbage stirring to combine. Cover with a lid and cook until the cabbage starts to slightly wilt.
Add the potatoes and corned beef to the skillet, stir and keep on the heat for just a minute or two. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. I serve it with an over-easy egg on top, that no one can resist!
