Diner Corned Beef Hash
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min.
Found this to be a good basic recipe for corned beef hash. I used Yukon Gold potatoes because that is what I had on hand. Otherwise, followed the recipe exactly and it came out really good. The potatoes stayed firm and I am happy I boiled them as the recipe called Fortunately, I had corned beef in the freezer. The canned stuff just would not work in my opinion. Not sure the cloves added that much. Next time I make this, I will probably add green or red sweet peppers, a little salt to boil the potatoes and maybe some carrots for a little flavor burst.
It was interesting to read toolbarsco's review below. The first sentence is exactly what happened to me! But, unfortunately, it just didn't do it for me. The photo shown on the site isn't at all how my dinner turned out. I love hash but both the corned beef and potatoes ended up mushy. I wouldn't cook the potatoes before, I would fry them up with the celery. I couldn't find any solid meat-type corned beef so unfortunately, I used the canned stuff. Not good. Perhaps that was the issue. I wouldn't add cloves but the onions and cilantro were a saving grace. I would make a lot of changes to this recipe if I were to make it again.
I have never eaten corned beef hash but my husband has fond childhood memories of it, and he was excited for me to try this recipe. Everything went fine until we came to the cloves and cilantro. He was pretty sure his mom's hash did not contain either of these. We consulted Joy of Cooking and found several alternatives for additives. We added ketchup and parsley. It was absolutely delicious. I will make it again with these changes.
